Just thinking about the clearest swimming spots in Nevada will have you grateful that our weather is warm enough to take a dip outside. From swimming holes to “cooler” hot springs (with temperatures around 90-100 degrees), here are eight of the best places to swim in Nevada. If you’re looking for the most pristine and clearest lakes in Nevada, we’ve got you covered.
The Nevada swimming spots we’ve chosen vary in size and depth. You may not be able to swim laps at some or dive in at others (so don’t expect to practice your cannonball at all eight locations) but no matter what, you’re sure to get wet and make a splash before the weather starts to cool down by summer’s end!
Warning: Always test the temperature of a hot spring before getting in. Wear water shoes or sandals to prevent slipping or stepping on something sharp. Some hot springs contain organisms that are harmful to humans, so keep your head above water to be safe.
