Buttermilk Falls, Ludlow

The swimming area consists of two pools below the upper and middle falls that can be easily accessed from the road.

Bristol Falls, Bristol

The highlight of Bristol Falls is the wide sheeted waterfall that you can sit underneath or behind. The falls fill a huge swimming hole that is deep enough to jump into.

Dummerston Covered Bridge

The best part about this Vermont swimming hole is that it’s rarely crowded. This is the perfect spot to spend the day on the West River. 

Dorset Quarry, Dorset

The water here is deep and cold, and there are plenty of places for cliff jumping, picnicking, and exploring.

Salmon Hole is one of several deep swimming spots in the West River that you can access from Jamaica State Park.
