Here the criteria from the least excited in the group (my 15yo).

Swimming hole, easy hike, not many people, backpacking in, trees to hang from.

I'm thinking New England area or maybe NY? Any one know of a hike in swimming hole with camping?

On the north side of Mt Evertt hike the AT and stay at the Hemlocks lean-to. Nice lean-to and lots of trees! From there it's a short hike to Guilder Pond where I believe you can swim and picnic. Google "Guilder Pond" and you'll find info.

Thanks. That's not too far away from us.
