I went swimming in this lake almost every summer growing up. I've always known it as McCarson's Lake, though it may have a different official name. A GPS unit would be preferable for finding the lake since it is secluded by dense forest all around. But it is visible on Google Earth, so if you're going without a GPS, keep looking because it is there, and you'll see it was worth the effort to find this hidden beauty of the Niagra Escarpment region. And just as a side note, there's some pretty good fishing there too. I was a child when I fished there, so I'm not sure about licenses and such, but there's an unwritten rule maintained by the locals that the fishing there is strictly catch-and-release. The picturesque scenery and seclusion from the trails make for a tranquil swimming retreat. This place really is secret.
