Best Place To Go Swimming

Williams Lake

When one Coast reader voted for Williams Lake in this category, she or he also wrote parenthetically, “But don’t tell anybody.” It is kind of a secret, but because so many of you know it and are willing to share, probably not for much longer. The lake lies off Purcells Cove Road, hidden behind a group of lovely suburban homes. It is gorgeous and unspoiled, so if you do find it, enjoy it, but take care not to fuck it up for the rest of us with garbage or pollutants. Yeah, you heard me.
