The water park was very well liked by grandson who says he would like to return for his birthday. Is always nice when each traveler finds something he/she likes enough to return.

We didn't actually stay here, but I wanted to try the water park after our visit to the starved rock previous day. We stayed at holiday inn nearby. This resort looks good and the water park is suitable for small kids and not for teens. My kids had fun and its affordable for 20$ for a couple of hours. That... More

This place is absolutely awful. They are unwilling to work with you and will over-over-over charge you for ridiculous fines. People are unfriendly and rude.

We went here with my Son and his family for Valentine's weekend. We did not stay in the lodge, we were in one of the rental cabins. It was really fun and I would recommend. For the pool area, I would stay in the lodge next time though. The pool area is a lot of fun, it's a wave pool,... More

We just got back from a weekend with our 4 year old grandson. While to a 4 year old this was a cool place, to us it was pretty run down. The hotel was nice, the staff friendly but the attraction as a whole is showing it's age. The attractions at the indoor amusment park are not that great. The... More

Hiked to the ice falls. It was beautiful but take ice cleats for your boots. I don't recommend wearing tennis shoes when there is a thaw. My 4 year old made the hike but not recommend for older people with difficulty walking

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...
