Wake Nation is a new type of water park (one of only 8 in the entire U.S.) that lets you wakeboard, water ski, and kneeboard WITHOUT the use of a boat. The entire park is designed to provide the ultimate ride experience to both first timers and experienced riders. It’s great for anyone age 5 or older. Just bring your bathing suit as they’ve got everything else you need. The Wake Nation season runs from April through October.

Their website shows photos and videos of their so-called "water park" that has a trampoline and inflatables on a lake. These photos and video are totally fraudulent. They were taken at some other place. Wake Nation dug a hole in the ground, put some water in it, and they call it a water park. The trampoline doesn't bounce.....and I think... More

Great place for skiing, clean and very well maintained. Always a great place to meet other professionals in the boating industry.

Practice pond didnt help at all with the real thing. I had a terrible time. My mom said it might be fun because it looked like snowboarding and I'm a snowboarder and only to find it was very different. I hated waiting in a line for 30 minutes only to wipeout right at the beginning and have to get back... More

They attached color braclets to the kids and helped them find their equiptment. Started off... More

We took our two teenage sons. What a great day to go. They have a "Free" day once a summer. A MUST TO DO!

Had a HORRIBLE DAY at Wake Nation today. Practice pond was closed; cables on the main lake had issues all day. The employees let their 7 friend’s line jump and ride repetitively for 5 laps while the rest of us waited an average of 47 minutes between rides. We were issued a partial refund but it was still a wasted... More

We are a ski boating, wave running, boarding, tubing and houseboating family--and have tons of experience in the water activity events--and whenever we want to take someone new out to enjoy the fun of these activities we start here. If they like this then we take them out for the real behind the boat experience.
