Summertime in Arizona can make you think of 120 degree temperatures and eggs frying on a sidewalk. Luckily up here in Northern Arizona that’s not quite the case- although it can get hot at times it’s almost always bearable. We are also fortunate to have a multitude of swimming holes to take the kids- Wet Beaver Creek being one of the best!

This spot is about 45 miles south of Flagstaff. There are numerous options and stops in Wet Beaver Wilderness, and because we had all of the kiddos with us we stopped off at the first area. We found a few flat areas to set up camp and we spent a few hours letting the kids splash and explore.

This is a great day trip for families, and kids of all ages! If you have babies be sure to have a shady space set up for them, and also bring floaties. The rocks can be slippery so water shoes are best.

If you check out Wet Beaver Creek, let me know! Happy exploring!

What to bring:

Water shoes (a must for children)
