"Swimming Mile" = 1650 Yards = 33 Laps (down and back)

"Real Mile" = 1760 Yards = 36 Laps (down and back)

33 laps (down and back) is equal to one "swimming mile", or a 1650.

This figure based on standard YMCA 25 yard pool.

A "Swimming Mile" (1650 above) is shorter than a "Real mile."

If you want to swim a "REAL" mile read below:

1 Mile = 5280 Feet

5280 Feet divided by 3 feet/yard = 1760 Yards

1760 Yards / 25 Yards / length of pool = 70.4 Lengths

70.4 laps / 2(Down+Back) = 35.2 laps

Since it would be odd to just swim .2 laps at the end I typically swim 36 Laps(Down and Back) to cover 1 mile = 72 Lengths of the pool to cover 5280 Feet

I plan to swim a "REAL" mile in a lake at scout camp in a few weeks which will be 5280 feet(1760 yards). In order to prepare and cover that distance I need to practice by swimming 72 lengths of the 25 yard YMCA pool in my neighborhood.

Well your answer will depend on which pool you are swimming in.

First let me define a lap as one length of the pool, so to go down and back is 2 laps.

25 yard pool - 132 laps = 3300 yards = 1.875 miles

25 meter pool - 128 laps = 3200 meters = 1.989 miles

50 meter pool - 64 laps = 3200 meters = 1.989 miles

There you go. I know 1.875 is a bit off, but in competitive swimming 1650 yards is considered "the mile".

One lap is a quarter mile. This means that four laps equals one mile, which means that four miles equals sixteen laps. It is very easy to count how many miles different laps equal for - you just need to multiply the amount of miles by four and you get the amount of laps.
