  • Summer Waves is a cool place! It's the perfect size with just the right amount of slides to ride, and a massive wave pool. My only complaint: why is there only ONE hot food place in the whole park? I ...  more »
  • Didn't really use it, as prefer swimming in ocean, but would be a great place to spend time with kids.  more »
  • Our family of 5 spent an afternoon at Summer Waves. There aren't many attractions but it was perfect on a hot summer day to keep cool. Lines were not too long as we went after lunch. kids area and wav...  more »

  • Great fun, especially for families with little children. Clean, pleasant, well-maintained.... This isn't the most thrill-filled water park, but it's the most attractive and pleasant I've ever visited. Reasonably priced food for a park. Check out the big bucket pour--pretty powerful for a kiddie area. Finally, be careful walking on the hot cement paths and aprons. Several in our group ended up with light burns on the soles of our feet.
  • Plenty life guards to go around. They offer military discounts w ID, Food was good (Larry sub's) and very affordable, staff is friendly young but friendly. I really want to make sure people understand that this is not a giant water park. For the price you pay it is very fair. You get to ride every slide more than twice w no more than 5 min wait. Its not an overwhelming park where you leave paying a ridiculous amount of money and not visit every ride, nope this park is far from that. I recommend the ice creams!!! Uber tasty.
  • We got summer passes this year and it was so worth it!! It's a short drive from Camden, and with an annual parking sticker for Jekyll, only cost us a locker per visit. We went at least 13 times. It made for a great summer!! Lifeguards were great. Friendly and on task. Lazy river was sometimes yucky, with debris, but mostly at the end of summer when they started to get short handed. This place will forever go down in our family as the best summer ever!!! Thanks, y'all!!!!
  • Our family had an amazing job, the park is small and the price is right. We wish the food was cheaper but the food is WORTH their prices as well. They do have cheap snacks for $1.00. We was able to have free refills all day. We are planning to come back with a group. The workers here are very nice and kindly told us that our daughter cant ride certain slides. They are concerned about our safety. All the life guards are on POINT. They also motivate you if you afraid of the water slides.
  • We love to visit Summer Waves when we are at Jekyll. The lines aren't too long and it's never too crowded. Pro tip: arrive later and pay less. After 3:00 the price of admission drops and 3 hours is still plenty of time to enjoy the park. Check their website for details.
