Why choose campsites with swimming pools?

Choosing a campsite with a swimming pool can be a great option for those looking for a refreshing and relaxing getaway. Not only does a swimming pool provide an opportunity to cool off on a hot summer day, but it can also offer a fun and enjoyable experience for families and individuals alike. With many campsites now offering a range of amenities, including poolside loungers, water slides, and splash zones for kids, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Additionally, a swimming pool can provide a great way to meet and socialize with other campers, making it an excellent option for those seeking a sense of community and connection. Whether you're an avid swimmer or simply looking for a fun and unique way to spend your vacation, a campsite with a swimming pool can be an ideal choice.

Campsites with swimming pools can be beneficial for fitness and health in several ways:

  1. Cardiovascular exercise: Swimming is a great cardiovascular exercise that can help to improve your heart and lung health. It can also help to burn calories and improve your overall fitness level.

  2. Low-impact exercise: Swimming is a low-impact exercise, meaning it puts less stress on your joints compared to high-impact activities like running. This makes it a great option for people with joint pain or injuries.

  3. Muscle strengthening: Swimming is a full-body workout that can help to tone and strengthen your muscles, including your arms, legs, and core.

  4. Stress relief: Swimming can be a great way to reduce stress and anxiety. The water can be calming and the exercise can help to release endorphins, which are natural mood-boosters.

  5. Social interaction: Swimming pools at campsites can also provide an opportunity for social interaction and connection with other campers.

Overall, campsites with swimming pools can be a fun and effective way to incorporate exercise into your vacation while enjoying the great outdoors.

Top tips for a smooth time

Pool etiquette 

Pool regulations differ from one place to another. For instance, male visitors will likely be requested to wear speedo-style briefs rather than roomier trunks or board shorts in France, and similar regulations for swimming caps will also likely apply in places like Italy and Belgium. When you've decided what to wear, consider what is and isn't appropriate for the indoor pool at your site. Spitting, bombing, and ducking are frowned upon virtually everywhere, however some pools allow splashing and the and also floats or toys. Glass beside the pool, running, and jumping are all prohibited.

Don't let children swim unattended; although swimming is normally a relatively safe activity, accidents can sometimes occur, especially if an adult isn't present to ensure that nothing goes wrong. If you're not yet a confident swimmer, make sure there is a lifeguard on duty. When in doubt, check with site staff for better instructions. 

Frequently asked questions about campsites with swimming pools

What are three things you should not do at a pool?

  1. Horseplay: Children and teenagers are more likely to participate in risky pool games like "chicken" and other activities that promote submerging one's head. Even popular pool areas might be hazardous if swimmers aren't paying attention.
  2. Playing near the drain: You should watch out for a pool drains whether you're at home or utilizing a public pool. This is often a tiny, palm-sized grating that is incorporated into the pool's floor. Many people are unaware of how hazardous the grate and strong suction from running water may be, especially if novice swimmers or small children get their fingers or hair stuck in the drain.
  3. Running around the pool: There are "no running" signs in public pools for a reason. A pool's edge is prone to become wet and dangerously slippery. Just as on any other wet floor, there is a considerable probability that someone running around the pool's edge would slip and fall. Falling near a pool poses a higher risk because of the lip, which is more likely to result in head injuries and the possibility of drowning.

Can you stay in a pool too long?

A person can stay in the water for as long as they want to without running afoul of any medical regulations.

Swimming pool activities

Let’s talk about activities you can do in the pool once you’ve arrived at your campspace. 

Pool volleyball, Marco Polo, or scavenger hunts are a few examples of games you can do in the pool. However, each pool is different, so make sure your games are safe! Your hosts may have some rules to advise for safety as well. You can always bring some pool rings and float in the sun too! 

And while having access to a pool is nice, don’t forget to explore and appreciate the nature around you as well! Go hiking, biking, or foraging! Collect wild edible plants in a basket and make your own salad! 

At a campspace, you’ll make so many memories. So what are you waiting for? Your camping with swimming opportunities are just around the corner!
