The DAM Lake Berryessa swim is a classic in its 32nd run! The 2015 swim will continue to be held at the new venue - Steele Canyon Campground, near the junction of highways 128 and 121. This venue features plenty of off-street parking and campsites available for the weekend. The water is clean and comfortable and the weather is, more often than not, fine!

You have to pre-register for the 10K and be able to meet the 3 ½ hour cut off time to swim the event. On Sunday, the 1 mile and the 2.5K will be held. If you’re new to open water swimming, try the 1 mile swim. It’s run first. For a good workout, do both. Plenty of parking. A good place to bring the kids: they have a roped off swimming area.
