Best Freshwater swimming

We visit the Cape often and truly love both the bayside beaches and the ocean beaches. But I would like to seek out some freshwater swimming in the many kettle ponds.

Which one is your favorite and why?

Brewster - Nickerson State Park. Once you visit, you won't have to ask why!

I used to go to Dennis Pond all the time as a kid (it's actually in Yarmouthport). I'm not sure how it is these days.

Wellfleet has some nice kettle ponds, though in season you have to have a sticker to go there.
