Watering Holes Near Our Outposts

Outpost Watering Holes

Now that it’s finally warm out, we know that the best way to complement your outdoor adventure is with a quick dip in cool waters. That’s why we’ve put together a list of our favorite watering holes near each of our Outposts.

Getaway Eastern Catskills
One of the most popular waterfalls in the Catskills is Kaaterskill Falls in Hunter, NY. There’s a moderate 2.6 mile out and back trail that will take you to the base of the waterfall for some amazing views.

Getaway Blake Brook
Located about an hour away from our Boston Outpost, Lake Winnipesaukee is the largest lake in New Hampshire and offers plenty of activities all year round. Drop by for a swim, a bit of boating, or try your hand at fishing.

Getaway Dale Hollow
Our favorite spot near Getaway Dale Hollow for a day on the water, is Pleasant Grove Park, just 24 minutes from our cabins.

Getaway Homochitto
Just 11 minutes from the Outpost, you can head to Lake Okhissa for an afternoon fishing or boating on the lake.

Getaway Machimoodus
Just 2 minutes from the Outpost, you can head to Salmon Cove Preserve to explore Salmon River, or, just 10 minutes away, you can head to East Haddam Town Beach on the shores of the Machimoodus Reservoir.

Getaway Chattahoochee
Vogel State Park, located just 30 minutes from our Outpost, offers far more than just a spot for a quick swim. Explore some nearby hikes or stretch out on the beach. Plus, the mountain views are pretty spectacular.

Getaway Beaver Creek
Just a 30 minute drive from our Outpost, Guilford Lake State Park, features a 600-foot public swimming area on the northwest side of the lake.

Getaway Barber Creek
Just 20 minutes from the Outpost, you can head to North Beach in nearby South Haven to spend an afternoon swimming and enjoying time on the shores of Lake Michigan.

Getaway Western Catskills
Getaway Western Catskills is conveniently located just on the shores of the Pepacton Reservoir, so just two minutes from the Outpost, you can spend an afternoon picnicking with those who matter most. We’d recommend heading to the Shavertown Trail Trailhead for a nice 2.9 mile hike around the reservoir.

Getaway Big Bear
With plenty of space for both swimming and water sports, Lake Gregory Regional Park, is a quick 20 minute drive from our Outpost.

Getaway Mount Adams
Outlet Falls, located just 10 minutes from our Outpost, features a 69-foot waterfall. If your sense of adventure permits, climb the steep but short path and you’ll find plenty of swimming spots at the base.

Getaway Skagit Valley
While our Seattle Outpost has a small waterfall on site, the best spot to spend an afternoon cooling off with those who matter most is 28 minutes away on the shores of the Skagit Bay. And for those with a furry friend, we’d recommend English Boom Trail County Park, as there’s an off-leash dog park there for your pup to run free.

Getaway Kettle River
Just 11 minutes from the cabins, you can head to Sturgeon Lake for a day spent cooling off.

Getaway Shenandoah
Just one hour away from our Outpost, Upper Whiteoak Falls has a series of swimming holes and hikes easily accessible from the base.
