Looking for another fun place to swim? Awesome reader, Cortnie, sent in these pics from Deep Lake in Enumclaw that make me want to dive right in!
It’s in Enumclaw, so a bit of a trek for some of you, but it looks worth it if you’re looking for a quiet, clean place to splash and play. Do note that it is actually part of Nolte State Park, so you’ll need a Discover Pass, or you can get one for the day. ** There aren’t lifeguards, so you’ll need to watch your kiddos at all times. Readers also caution that just like the name suggests, it’s deep, with no real shallow area, right from the start, so consider floats and life jackets in addition to vigilance.
Motorized boats aren’t allowed, so you’ll enjoy a peaceful environment.
What else could you want? Cortnie says you’ll also find a lovely trail around the lake and clean bathrooms. Woot! Sounds playdate meet-up worthy to me! You can also check it out on the state parks site here.
