Fodor's Review

On hot summer days the sight of dozens of families jumping, swimming, and basking in the sun around this massive 60-foot-deep swimming hole makes it one of the most wholesome and picturesque recreational spots in the region. First mined in 1785, the stone from the country's oldest commercial marble quarry went to build the main branch of the New York Public Library and Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.

Dorset Quarry Review

this is a beautiful spot. However, you can't just gradually wade in & get wet gradually - you need to slide in off a rock & it's immediately deep. great place.
