Water Conditions

The water in Lake Arrowhead is clean and is usually free of underwater vegetation.  The lake is treated throughout the year to keep vegetation to a minimum.  Water temperatures will vary and once the water temp is over 65 degrees wetsuits will not be required.


These swims are designed to give newer to advanced swimmers an open water venue to practice swimming.  We will not provide coaching at these practices yet feel free to bring your coach.


Test a new wetsuit, swim with other people without lap lanes, sight buoys and turns, measure your speed, and get comfortable in open water.


The swim course changes based on the number of confirmed swimmers.  The course will be an out and back loop, either 150 meters or 300 meters around, swimming in a counter-clockwise direction.  The Olympic distance swim is either 10 laps of the 150 course or 5 laps of the 300 lap course.
