Went to the great waves park yesterday and had a great time with friends and family. We were earlier contemplating on going to the water mine in Reston but this was a better value for money...the wave pool was superb and we spent most of the time between 6 to 8 ft which is never crowded...Pla refrain from that if...

We purchased a LivingSocial deal for the whole family and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on our summer vacation. We avoided the crowds by going on a weekday. My kids are 6,7, and 14 and I told them I used to come here as a child and it was called "Cameron Run Park" back then and it only had the wave pool... More

I thought this place was a little pricey for the lack of activities. The wave pool was small, and there were only a few other water slides and attractions.

Well, this is a difficult view to write, as I remember Cameron Run in its heyday. I used to go here often as a kid and I loved the wave pool and the slides! The park consists of a mini-golf course, that you can pay separately to use, a wave pool, a kiddie pool, and several very long water slides.... More

The wave pool was nice, but the place was truly worn down. The refreshment stand offered only unhealthy options. The lifeguard staff seems to be of a different quality than the food-service staff, who truly didn't seem to care about the icky sticky floor and the long line. They had a huge crowd, so some customers are definitely happy. The... More

Running right next to the Capital Beltway Interstate 495 you can't hear yourself think, but it also has Great Waves swim park there in summer. That is a good time for the kids.

The park itself is small, but easily accessible and not very crowded most days. The oats are well maintained and lead to parks for children. It is pleasant to walk along the Cameron Run waterway between you and the 495 expressway, it is a bit of nature where you wouldn't expect it! Easy for exercise when staying at any number... More

Went recently with my son. We had an amazing time. The wave pool is a lot of fun. The kids fun playhouse where they have slides and climbing spaces (not sure what they officially call it) was also enjoyed for several hours. Big slides also fun but we were too scared to try the two really steep slides that looked... More

The reason I gave this park 3 stars is becuase my daughter did enjoy herself and as others say, this is run by Northern VA, not a private business. We went this past Saturday, one of the hottest days of the summer. The place was extremely crowded and pools were very very dirty there was stuff floating everywhere and I... More
