Natural waters where you can swim in California...creeks, rivers, lakes....
Being in nature for me means near water, and near water brings the desire to dip and splash and have fun while you cool down. The river Colorado has some beaches along, but I was looking for something else...any ideas?

Been on the search since last summer. Haven't come up with any good ones. Here's all that I know of.

La Jolla Indian Campground
Northeast of Escondido
Crowded

Hell hole canyon
Northeast of Escondido
Not crowded, small swimming hole, hard to find, hard to get to

Lake Elsinore
North of Murrieta
Crowded, lots of speed boats

Wisconsin
Find a lake within 5 miles any direction.

Also, Vail Lake, off of 79 East of Temecula. Resort membership but they'd probably let you try before you buy. Across from Dripping Springs Campground.

Let me know if you discover any others.

The waters of California have been contaminated for years, and the government lets people swim at their own risk.

People get sick swimming in polluted waters (losing a kidney or two), or didn't you know?

Google Earth is your friend:

Barrett Lake, Lake Morena, (there is a lovely valley that goes between those two places (about a 6.5 mile long trail).

Loveland Reservoir looks pretty nice.

All 3 of those places are within 40 miles of downtown San Diego.

For all you guys that are posting reservoirs....

In California, it is illegal to swim in reservoirs. Ducks and fish can, but humans can't.

It's a tad more complicated than just bringing up google maps.

I am ignorant of California laws since I don't live anywhere near that State. I'll leave it up to the OP to find out what is or is not legal to do in their state.

To make that easier, here is a link to browse that lists which lakes you can swim in:

Maybe...or
maybe (as we are on GLP)....how about

they want us to forget dipping/swimming?
Water -especially pure, natural water - is more, than just a compound of H and O - it is sacred, it is a carrier of information, it has several still unexplained properties.

Little known fact for instance, that dipping in water is an very effective way of eliminating the effect of radiation from our body.

Baths has been healing centers for thousands of years, and still are in most of the countries of Europe and Asia.

In the us we just shower at home, soaking in the bathtub counts as a special occasion treat.

Of course I did...most beaches are crowded, no natural surroundings, like trees, bushes, birds, bees plus the water is cold most of the time
