This Swimming Spot Has The Clearest, Most Pristine Water Near Denver

If you’re a Colorado resident, native or otherwise, you know full well that truly good swimming holes are hard to come by because – let’s face it – the clearest, most pristine waters are usually found above 9,000 feet and are fairly frigid, not to mention the fact that the ecosystems are quite fragile and should be left intact. Of course we also have plenty of nearby reservoirs and other lakes to choose from, but unfortunately they’re not necessary crystal clear or unspoiled.

If you’re looking for a sweet, clean swimming spot near Denver, I’d honestly suggest just finding a community pool, but if you want to take a dip in a beautiful natural setting, the Boulder Creek is just the ticket. Just remember to leave it like you found it because this lovely land belongs to all of us and deserves our utmost respect and diligent protection. Now get out there and test the waters!
