Clear Creek Reservoir, Winslow

Just a few miles south of Winslow, McHood Park offers free camping and a great reservoir. Clear Creek was damned in the 1930s and today the reservoir provides for a number of water activities. Fishing, canoeing and of course swimming and cooling off are popular. Power boats are allowed, and there are no restrictions for these.

Cliff jumpers will find some good leaping off points in the lower canyon. This area is also popular with rock climbers; climbing without ropes, they simply use the water as their crash mat.
