One of the Most Beautiful Swimming Holes in the Country is Located here in New York

A hidden gem within the Catskills region, Peekamoose Blue Hole is known for being a stunning oasis of crystal clear water surrounded by lush greenery. Located in the middle of the Sundown Wild Forest, Peekamoose is a depression in Rondout Creek, a unique formation created by sand and gravel swirling together in an ancient whirlpool. The creek is part of the New York City drinking water watershed. Unfortunately in recent years, this watering hole has been affected negatively by the presence of large crowds on summer weekends.
