Place to swim in Idyllwild

We are camping this weekend for 4th of July in Idyllwild and wondered if there were any places to swim in town or around town. We are staying at the Idyllwild County Campground. We are looking for creek/watering holes or swimming pools even if we have to a pay some to go in them. Thanks!

There aren't many pools in town. In fact, I can think of only one, though there are likely others of which I don't know. Fern Valley Inn ((951) 659-8100, 25240 Fern Valley Road, Idyllwild, CA 92549, http://fernvalleyinn.com) has a pool. But, I don't know if they'd permit non-Inn guests to partake; you could ask.

Few residences even have pools. The one I've seen has an INDOOR pool!

Lake Hemet, a few minutes from Idyllwild, has a swim park with a floating playground. (http://lakehemetrecreation.com, (951) 659-2680, 56570 CA-74, Mountain Center, CA 92561)

Enjoy your trip! Welcome to Idyllwild. During your visit, be sure to visit with our canine Mayor, Mayor Max and his two deputy mayors -- all Golden Retrievers! They are downtown every day, and will be in the July 4 parade and in town thereafter. They would love to meet you! www.mayormax.com, www.facebook.com/mayor.max.3
