We stayed at Grizzly Jacks for two nights specifically for the indoor waterpark. The place isn't huge, but there is a variety of things for kids to do/play on - wave pool, waterfall, 2 big water slides, 2 kid slides, zero entry into wave pool (only goes to 5ft), kid pool, large hot tub, lazy river, and a kids play...

Your kids will be bored with the waterpark after an hour and then your stuck with NOTHING else to do. Don't waste your time at the so-called amusement park. There's nothing in there anymore.

We can't say enough good about this hotel...Tram to go across a parking lot? Unless you have mobility needs, we took four kids and walked a parking lot away, one in a stroller. The water park was fantastic..especially for the younger set. It was beautiful water, even our red haired blue eyed kids didn't have any chlorine issues. I think... More

Wish everything would be under one roof. Rooms are ok, waterpark is ok. Having to get on tram to go to other building is not so good. It would be really bad in the winter.

I liked everything in the waterpark. My foster sons are 3 & 16 months, so they enjoyed everything from the toddler pool to the lazy river.

Its a smaller indoor waterpark, but kids of all ages can enjoy it. My kids are 2 and 3 and enjoyed the kiddy area, as well as the lazy river. Older kids will enjoy the lazy river as well as the water slides. Just another Fun amenity the hotel offers

1 of the two main water slides is broken and will NOT be fixed until possibly 09/2014. Most of the water falls throughout the facility are not running. The ranger station does not dump water. The amusement park is full of bouncy houses, a zip line, super slide and NONE OF THE ARCADE GAMES were functioning. You can play laser... More
