If it is a hot summer and you like swimming here and some local swimming holes, not swimming pool. Swimming quality is dependent apon rainfall around here. None of these place have life guards, in some case swimming is illegal. Remember not to eat a half hour before swimming.
Lake Jean Beach (41.340498,-76.281585) in Rickettes Glen State Parkhttp://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/statepar...kettsglen.aspx on Red Rock Mountain.
Link to illeagal Rickettes cliff juming videos, they are just little cliffs but much pain they have caused. http://www.youtube.com/results?searc...iff+Jump+&aq=f Lake Jean empties into Kitchen Creek and you can hike the loop to see the best water falls. Wear hiking shoe and take a camera, and no swimming
For those with a GS skill set, try riding down to Sullivan Falls (41.20096,-76.20495) the headwaters for Fishing Creek on the Jamison City rd. Those with RTs will need to come up from Jamison City, That way is still 2 miles of dirt. For the young at heart this is about a 40 ft jump into 62 degree water. No one swims they just jump! I never did it, the water is freezing. On a hot summer day this is the coolest spot around, it will be 30 degrees colder than the fairgrounds. Take a chair, a brew, a hoagie or ribs maybe a book and watch the crazies jump into cold ass water. Some days no one is there for hours and it is a very peaceful place.
Benton Dam is some time open and some times closed. http://www.panoramio.com/photo/26544997
The Powder Hole is closed and no swimming. Never been there but pain and death has happened there more than twice.
