  • There are limited options for water parks in the area, so this is a pretty good option. Don't expect quality service at the snack bar. The teens running this place have no clue what's going on.  more »
  • I attended this park with my husband and two children, ages four and one. It was a very nice water park. They had life vests available for the children, which I thought was necessary in the main part ...  more »
  • This is a nice waterpark, fun for all ages, but it could be better. For example, there is no shade, anywhere, over the pool. No trees around the pool. There are sun shades (large umbrellas) for people...  more »
  • Excellent water park! We stayed in the campground and got a discount. This park was perfect for our 2 and 4 year old both with the wade pool great for the little ones. Definitely recommended and we will be back in the future.
  • DO NOT GET FOOD HERE!!! The kitchen is really slow and disorganized. They called my order but I could not hear them, even though I waited right by the window. Then, they gave my order to someone else. Plus, I had to ask for the other hot dog I ordered. There was no cheese on the cheeseburger we ordered. Plus, they forgot our fries, and then told me when I asked for them they were out. What a mess! It seemed like no one was in charge running the kitchen making sure orders were made or correct. They need a manager in there.
  • It is really fun there! The place is cool, go in the pool u can play in the sand too!😄👍
  • They NEVER Answer Their Phones & Voice Mails When You Call For Group Pricing & Family Events ... TERRIBLE
  • Great fun for my daughter (and me). The price is a little high but that seems to keep the place from being too overwhelmed. There are only about 6 big umbrellas covering areas of chairs, so unless you want to sit/lay in the sun or have your stuff bake while you play you need to get there when they open. The restrooms are clean enough, perhaps could be updated but it is what it is. The slides were all functional, from the toddler slide to the big swirly adult slides. Interestingly they made my daughter take her flotation device (coast guard approved) OFF to use a slide... apparently to protect the surface of the slide. So that was weird, but overall the lifeguards are on point and seem very attentive. Be aware if someone has an 'accident' in the pool they will shut it down for an hour for cleaning. there is also a toddler/kiddie pool area and my 2 year old thought it was great. near that is a sand-play area that can probably hold about 15 kids, with showers to rinse off before going back to the pools. The snack shop was about what you'd expect; burgers, fries, hot dogs, ice cream. They advertise pizzas but didn't have any each time I've been there. While I'm on multiple trips I'll say there was a big difference between trips in clientele. During the 'weekdays after 4pm' discount time you will be crowded and maybe even overwhelmed, but during the weekend at full-price it was very pleasurable. No smoking in the gates but you can walk to the car and re-enter.
