Swim (or Paddle) the Snake River on AUG 12th

The Snake River, located in the southeast corner of Washington State, is a wide, slow-moving body of water framed by steep desert hills that makes it a unique place to recreate. On August 12, join other swimmers and paddlers in the Swim the Snake event at Lyon’s Ferry to enjoy an open swim or compete in a team paddle event. The open swim crosses the channel from Lyons Ferry State Park to Lyons Ferry Marina. All swimmers and paddlers receive a numbered swimming cap or wristband. Volunteers help direct water traffic and keep participants away from potential hazards. Swimmers must be at least 10 years old, of good health, and of intermediate swim level or higher. Swimmers under age 15 must each be accompanied by an adult swimmer. Bring a parking pass from Washington State Parks (a day or annual Discover Pass) and enjoy this scenic water feature!
