“Best swimming for little kids”
Review of Megunticook Lake

Ranked #8 of 34 things to do in Camden

Reviewed 11 July 2017

We love this spot because of the natural beauty, the kids love it because of the warm(ish) water and the dock they can swim out to. Great on a hot summer day, but also lots of hiking for when it's not warm enough to swim.

A great Maine lake to spend some free time or vacation on. This lake offers all-season recreational options. It can be a bit busy during summer weekends, but it's not over-crowded. Check it out and have some fun!

Scenic mountain lake with clean clear water suitable for boating, kayaking, or swimming (in warmer months). Free access from public boat ramp at the south end off of route 52 (Mountain Road).
Be aware that it can become quite windy with little warning even on clear days. Great places to beach and picnic.

The beach area is decent but no sand. The bottom is soft and muddy so you don't have to worry about walking on loose rocks. Not my first choice in beaches but a good area for beginner swimmers. Beautiful mountain views and wildlife.

I could not have enjoyed the lake more. Perfect clear and clean water, cool and refreshing but not cold. Loved swimming from the cabin dock and taking boats out in the cove. Almost nobody around to bother us, just a few neighbors doing the same as us.
