Swimming IN VERMONT'S MAD RIVER VALLEY

For people used to swimming pools, a mountain stream is really something special. On a warm July day, you’ll see kids jumping off boulders into the cool green waters of the Mad River, just like in the old-time paintings. Take a long swim in the still waters of Blueberry Lake.  There are also several indoor facilities that provide opportunities for year-round swimming.
Friends of the Mad River do summertime e-coli counts every other week. See the most recent testing results HERE.

Great Eddy Swimming Hole

This swimming hole has something for everyone. There is a rocky beach stretching out from the edge and a deep pool located right below the bridge. A little upstream is a less-frequented spot and there is a strip of rocks in the middle of the river when the river is high.
