We love this place. It's so beautiful and swimming in the lake with that amazing back drop is awesome. It does get busy on weekends especially but if you get there for 10am it's often deserted. The sandy beach is perfect for smaller children and there's plenty of shade.

This is a beautiful park, well worth the entry fee of $4 pp. The lake is gorgeous, with a nice swimming area and picnic tables back in the trees. Found out why they called it Echo Lake, the cliff faces on the other side must make the echos the kids loved to make. There were hiking trails which we did... More

This was a lovely find. For about $4 per person you get an entire day of fun. From picnics, to hikes, and swimming there is something for everyone. The lake trail is great. Even for novice hikers such as my husband and I we had no problem. It is a gorgeous lake with amazing views of the rock ledge above.... More

Very pretty lake right across from Cathedral Ledge. Can't think of another lake hereabouts that has such a view. Only thing close is Echo Lake on Mt. Desert Island. Nice sandy beach, not huge but ample, with picnic tables and lifeguards and bathrooms. There is a fee of a few bucks each. You can walk around the lake but we... More

Echo Lake has a lot going for it, which is why we return each year and enjoy introducing friends to it as well. From June--September, the swimming is fine. Water couldn't be considered warm, but comfortably refreshing. The lake is sandy-bottomed and there is a nicely maintained sandy beach area as well. It's a great place to picnic, as there... More

We were supposed to go to Echo Lake for one day of our vacation to give our grandson some play time, it was so nice we spent 3 days there. At $4 per adult per day it was a real bargain. The beach and water are very clean, and amazingly warm. The water is quite shallow so the little ones... More

This lake is a great place to swim and just relax. Beautiful view, clean lake. Can get a bit crowded but still very nice.

It was certainly pretty but it was Crowded!!! No one mentioned this so we were surprised to see all the people and two open parking spaces. The overlook is nice and we hiked up to White Horse ledge. It was a pretty intense hike (and we hiked Mt. Washington a few days before). A tree fee across the path before... More

A delightful little park with beach and picnic tables and a walking trail around the lake. It is an especially nice walk, although not a smooth trail, in the fall when the colors from White Horse Ledge are reflected onto the lake.
