NY: Catskills- Peekamoose Bluehole

For a couple of years I read about a small swimming hole with a blue glow within the NY Catskill preserve.

It would get so busy that now it requires reservations and is manned to ensure it’s kept clean. I met a really nice 25 year old ranger named Eli who checked us in. He guided us to our destination and suggested a couple of other stops.

The water did glow! I also met an adorable dog named Charlie who warned visitors from going into the glowing water. He stared at me watching my moves to ensure I didn’t consider leaping in.

My new friend Eli suggested I also visit a little creek near the parking lot as a quieter option. I had so much fun following the shadows of a water bug reflecting on the rocks beneath the clear waters.

Finally Eli advised to stop a mile down the road to visit the waterfall. You wouldn’t even know I had a headache that day! I find it’s Uber important to not let even a migraine stop me from an outdoor adventure. I just temper what I do.

Please google peekamoose blue hole reservations if you wish to visit as they do require it given the number of visitors and mess it was creating. Keep it clean!
