Here Are 6 Arizona Swimming Holes That Will Make Your Summer Epic
Looking to cool off in nature this summer? If you think that a simple walk in the woods won’t be enough, check out these swimming holes scattered throughout Arizona.
1. Bull Pen at West Clear Creek
You’ll find this swimming hole about 15 miles east of Camp Verde along West Clear Creek. It's about 10 feet at its deepest but swim around before you decide to dive in because some areas are only a few feet deep.
2. Crescent Moon Ranch
Ditch the Sedona crowds at Slide Rock and check out this area several miles south. It's a short distance east from the Red Rocks campground, so it's easy to find.
3. Fossil Creek
This absolutely beautiful area west of Pine and Strawberry features clear turquoise waters. Who wouldn’t want to dip their toes in here?
4. Wet Beaver Creek
You’ll find several swimming holes in this area a few miles northeast of the Out of Africa Wildlife Park and Montezuma Castle National Park. There are plenty of areas for you to dive or wade with your kids.
5. Clear Creek
Located a few short miles south of Winslow, this is another area where you’ll find some nice areas to dive into the water. 6. Ellison Creek Falls
If you’re camping along the Mogollon Rim, be sure to check out this swimming hole. The water is icy cold so it will make a refreshing dip following a hike from the Second Crossing Campground.
