The water park at CamelBack Creek, about a 10-minute drive west of Denver, is a gem of the Rocky Mountains.
There are plenty of amenities, including a heated pool, volleyball court, and indoor and outdoor swimming pools.
But, it’s also a hot spot for the annual water park craze, with thousands of people heading here to soak in the cool summer air and soak in all the water.
And the Camelback pool is a major draw.
“We do not have a lot of people who come here to get their fill of water,” says Bob Fennell, the general manager of the Camelbacks.
“The water’s so cool.
We’ve got a pool that’s 50 feet deep.
It’s not as much as a regular pool, but it’s still huge.
You don’t have to go to the water park.”
It’s also not for the faint of heart.
“You can have a bad time in the water, but this is a great experience,” Fennill says.
The waterpark is a good place to take a break and relax.
“I do enjoy it, but I’ve had a couple of bad days,” says Jennifer Smith, a Colorado Springs resident who spends most of her summer at the waterpark.
“So we’ve been having some of the worst days I’ve ever had at the pool.”
Fennelly says that the water at the CamelBack pool is so cool, that he’s had to run the pool through water pumps twice a week to keep it fresh.
But the water is still very fresh, and the pools popularity keeps growing.
The pool is also one of the few places where you can rent a swimsuit, a popular pastime at the nearby WaterPark, which has a similar vibe.
“It’s so hot, we have a pool where people can come in,” Fenny says.
“If you’re looking for a pool, this is probably the place to go.”
FENNELL SAYS THE CAMPANEL IS A HUGE FOREVER In the summer, it can be hot.
It can be humid.
But most of all, the pool is the best place to relax and have a good time, Fennel says.
There’s a lot going on in the park.
“There’s a big crowd of people here,” he says.
So many people come to the CamelBones to enjoy the water or the pool.
The Camelback waterpark’s pool, with a 50-foot deep pool, is popular among locals and visitors.
But it’s a good spot for people who want to unwind and enjoy the pool for a while.
“When I go to CamelBone it’s so nice,” says Fennells daughter, Emma.
“People are just so friendly.
I just love that.”
Fenny loves that.
“She’s just a sweet, sweet girl,” FENNILL says.
A big part of the reason people come here is because it’s free, and he thinks it’s the perfect place for an adventure.
“This is a very popular place for people to go,” Fenna says.
And for the average person who wants to take in the sights and sounds of the mountains, the resort can be a great place to explore.
“A lot of our guests go here,” Fernell says.
But you can’t get a good water experience without a swim suit.
“Some of the best places for water are on the other side of town,” Fenie says.
This waterpark in Colorado Springs is not the only place where you’ll find a swim in the summer.
There is also a swimming pool at the North Fork of the Colorado River at the Colorado State Parks recreation center.
But Fennelle says it’s his favorite.
“Everyone here likes to swim,” he explains.
“They’re just so happy to have a place to do that.”
