Isabelle’s Creek Cooldown began on July 28, 2020, and ended on August 9, 2020. Isabelle is a special character who guides new players through the variety of things they can do in the game. In addition, Isabelle sometimes comes to the player’s campsite and starts a new event.
Isabelle’s Creek Cooldown is the first of three events that are connected to each other.
All of the events in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp start with special flowers. Players must plant them in their gardens, then return to collect the rare creatures (bugs) that find them. Prizes are distributed based on how many bugs the player caught.
Isabelle: Summer is definitely one of my favorite seasons, but the heat can certainly leave me feeling groggy.
Isabelle: At the very least, I need to find a way to cool off for a few hours…
Isabelle: So, I came up with a really great idea!
Isabelle: Why not create a creekside area where everyone at the campsite can come to cool off for a bit?
Isabelle: I’m going to give you some seeds to start, so go ahead and plant them in your garden.
Isabelle gave my Pocket Camp character 5 bags of purple starflower + seeds. and 5 bags of purple starflower seeds. The ones with the + grow super fast!
Isabelle: Once these flowers bloom, they’re sure to attract plenty of creek fireflies.
The goal is to keep planting the event-specific flowers and then come back and collect the rare creatures that landed on them. The number of bugs is what grants the player prizes, which usually match the theme of the event.
Task complete! My Pocket Camp character and Isabelle are standing on a path in my garden. The plants directly in front of them are not done growing yet. Off screen are the five purple starflower+ seeds that grow much faster than the rest. I picked the fireflies off of them, and got enough to earn a reward.
This process takes place, over and over again, until the event ends of the player earns all the rewards.
I earned two stardust fans. These items are required in order to complete a set of quests.
I earned a bamboo-boat lantern!
Task complete! My Pocket Camp character is wearing a straw beach hat and a white beach dress. Those items were not part of the event, but might have connected to a previous one.
Here are what the fireflies that were attracted by the purple starflower plants looked like.
Task complete! The flowers in the above screenshot are pink starflowers. I was able to earn some prizes by planting them, but I don’t think I got all of the rewards. The event ended before I could do that.
Here are some other rewards that are connected to Isabelle’s Creek Cooldown:
three-tier lantern A
three-tier lantern B
red standing umbrella
riverside veranda A
There were classes that required some of the items that players could earn during this event.
Creek Cooldown was the first class. It only required a few items.
The highlighted items are the ones that the player needed to place. One of them is Cool-Stone Riverbank (highlighted rocks in the background). I must have obtained at least one of them, but cannot find the screenshot. The other two are River Stepping-Stones, and I’m certain I earned two of them.
Creek Cooldown 2 was the second class.
Creek Cooldown 2 required the river rock, river stepping-stones, red standing umbrella, and three-tier lantern A. Some of those items were also used in the Creek Cooldown class.

I put some of the Creek Cooldown items into my campsite.
Goldie seems to be enjoying these items.
More of the Creek Cooldown items were added to the same space after I earned them. I like how these items, when put together with a few more that fit the theme, felt very peaceful.
Isabelle: We’d all be sad and sweaty if it weren’t for you. Thanks for making this possible, Ownka!
A small scene appears when part of the Creek Cooldown event is over.
Isabelle: Congratulations! You’ve completed all of these goals!
Isabelle: Thank you for gathering so many fans, Ownka!
Isabelle: They’re yet another creative way we can get a big of relief from this scorching summer heat.
Isabelle: There’s nothing more refreshing than something cold on a hot day.
Isabelle: Ice cream, lemonade, or even ice water would certainly hit the spot right about now, huh?
Isabelle: Anyway, enjoy your summer, and try your best to stay cool!
