Swim


A beautiful view and convenient centralized location make Bookcliff's swimming complex a great place to spend a summer day; however, that is not the true magic of the swimming program at Bookcliff Country Club. The magic lies in the programs offered by the staff. There is literally a program for everybody.

The pool area is a summertime hub with everything from "learn-to-swim" programs for children, to pool exercise programs and relaxation for adults. You can also spend the day soaking in the sun and never leave the complex, with full access to locker rooms and a poolside menu with poolside service, Bookcliff gives new meaning to the phrase "lounging the day away!"

Summertime also brings a host of pool activities for your children & grandchildren. They can participate in special camps, swim lessons, BCC’s own swim team and they can invite their friends to join them... or make new ones at the club. We even have an active calendar of summer special holiday events designed for the entire family. The pool is open 7 days a week for your enjoyment during our summer season, which is Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day.
 

Refreshments

Need a little refreshment? Well... you never have to leave the pool. Just visit our Poolside CafĂ© for everything from bottled water, candy bars, soft serve ice cream to something heartier like sandwiches, salads, burgers & fries or even a beer or cocktail. Having dinner poolside is always a highlight of the summer at Bookcliff Country Club!
