America's Best Swimming Holes: Meadow Run Natural Waterslide, Ohiopyle, PA

Meadow Run Natural Waterslide, Ohiopyle, PA

Ohiopyle’s nature-made water park practically calls out for visitors to splash around in the summer heat. But with no lifeguard on duty, officials recommend checking with a ranger before diving in. Once you’ve ensured water levels are safe for swimming, hop on the sandstone slide and let the current whisk you down to the deeper pool below. To access the hole, first look for the Meadow Run Natural Waterslide parking lot alongside Route 381, and then follow Meadow Run Trail to the rushing water. An ADA-accessible observation deck is also easily reached from the parking area. —Caroline Hallemann
