Our children LOVE visiting. Having the beach, wave pool and water slides all in one place really adds to the variety of things to do. You can grab a coupon at the store and we on your way! One of our favorite places to visit during the summer!

The lake and "beach" area are fun but the water park attractions are far apart! Kids would enjoy all the attractions but most adults do not enjoy walking (while wet) the area between all the water fun. Pricey for the value. But, the lake and area is beautiful.

Great fun for family of 4 with 7 and 9 year old. Two water play areas. One for younger kids (toddler age) and one for older kids. Zip line was fun. Line for obstacle course was too long. Some rides/attractions weren't open when the park opened and didn't have clear expectations for when they would open.

My family and I love going here. The kids enjoy themselves every time. There is so much to do in the day, beach, wave pool and water slides. Worth the trip.

Such a fun place with activities for the children as well as adults! Most activities are included in the price of the ticket. The obstacle course on the lake is so much fun! Such a beautiful lake and a place our family will definitely go back to! The reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is because the child... More

We went at the perfect time in August. Low crowds which allowed for minimal wait times on water slides. There was a little longer wait to play on the Wibit and the zip lines. The wave pool is extremely nice. They played a movie (Dive-in), so that was a lot of fun to watch Toy story 3 and swim. The... More

I was very happy with the day. We got the group rate for having 15 people and then an extra amount off for Public Safety, which was a nice surprise. There was a lot for the entire group to do, ranging in age from 8-40. The only down side to the entire day was the long walk to and from... More

We attended an extended family wedding at this facility in late July. The lodge itself and most of the customer service personnel were decent. Our kids played in the large salt water pool and subsequently attended the water park. We departed home satisfied with the experience having enjoyed our family in a nice resort. A week later both of our... More
