Lake
“Swimming hole that's very popular. A pretty jade lagoon surrounded by trees with a rope swing. Water is about 4 feet deep. The parking area is just a road side pull off. Once you park, you follow a well worn trail down to the water.”

It is located in the center of Woodstock & and offers a beautiful, tranquil walk out along the Sawkill Stream for miles. A parking lot is conveniently located opposite the start of the trail on Comeau Drive, the road opposite the Police Station.”
