Now, if you are like me and have been to some of the nicer water parks especially down in Florida around the major theme parks this place will not hold up. That being said for Tennessee and from what I know we have to offer in 2 hours in every direction this is a fun day for the family. They... More

This is a great place to bring your family if you can afford it. They stick you with everything from parking fees to, no outside food. I do not know how a family can afford to spend some quaintly time at this park. If you have food alleges forget it. Everything is cooked together and you have to go through... More

We went on a family outing on a hot Sunday. My suggestions: (1) get there early and do the slides first because the lines get long; (2) if you can swing it, get a cabana. It's nice to have shade away from everyone, a small locker for valuables is included, AND food is delivered to you; (3) get the cabanas... More

typical waterpark-smaller. Overcrowded and overpriced for what it is. Didnt feel clean, lifeguards did not seem attentive, did not feel like kids were safe without me near them and they are good swimmers.

Me and my 6 year old daughter buy a season pass every year. We go a couple times a week. She loves it. They have a lazy river, wave pool, kiddie pool, splash area for kids, and several slides. The slides are all pretty much the same, but are fun. They added a new family slide for up to 4... More

Price isn't terrible but when you compare it to Holiday World which is a little further away but 5$ more for TWO parks And it's a lot nicer.

The park is ok, but it's a bit small for the price and also not laid out very well. As far as the lifeguards, they randomly make odd hand and arm gestures that are almost impossible to understand, and the staff overall is rather unfriendly.

Hi Tim, thank you for visiting our park and thank you for your comments. I am glad that you noticed the actions of the lifeguards. They just received “Exceeds” on their most recent audit performed by Ellis & Associates, which is the leading water safety company in the world. We also had one of our lifeguards receive the “Golden Guard”... More

If your going more than one time, it's cheaper to buy a season pass! I have a 3 year old and he loved the kid sections, I wish they were together, so we wouldn't have to move, but their not far away from each other. The food is pricey, but just bring a cooler and leave it in the car,... More

My family and I camped at Nashville shores recently and we had a great time! We were very happy with the campground itself. It was very clean and probably one of the most quiet campgrounds we have ever been too. We had a lake spot, which was amazing, as we backed our fifth wheel right up to the lake. The... More
