We have been going to FSK for many years, bringing our kids and now grandkids. It is so family friendly, so much to do, everyone so nice and helpful. Absolutely no complaints. The price is great and the shuttle is the perfect way to get to the beach easily (no traffic and parking!). We highly recommend it.

What an amazing weekend! FSK Family Resort is fantastic. The best indoor pool I have ever seen and it was open 10AM-10PM. My 6-year-old daughter loved the Sprayground. Lifeguard John was fun as he interacted with the kids; he definitely wanted everyone to have a good time. We stayed in New York building with a full kitchen, which was great... More

We had a great time. We enjoyed the indoor and out door pools as well as the spray ship. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The basketball court, volley ball and miniature golf was something all could enjoy. Loved the shuttle. Shopping across the street had your needs.

This is a great family spot. My girls had a great time in the indoor and outdoor pool. I really liked the family lounge for movie nights. They provided complimentary popcorn and the chairs were so comfortable. And last but certainly not least, once the children were down for the night, I got to enjoy a yummy night cap by... More

We decided to stay here last minute due to some changes in our travel plans. Height of the season in Ocean city and not much available but reviews on trip adviser looked good. We stayed in main building on third floor. No elevator so had to haul our bags up three flights of stairs. Heavy smell of disinfectant in hall.... More

I wish I could say we are a perfect fit for all guests but I realize that is not possible. This guest did book online and though it states that we do not have an elevator that information does get missed by some guests. Our Lodge rooms are the least expensive rooms we offer which for this guest was $164.70... More

The service and staff were friendly and attentive. the only thing that was not up to the quality of the rest of the facility was the restaurant. Again the staff was good but the food could have been better. I only had breakfast so I don't know how the other meals were.

First time in Ocean City!! FSK resort was suggested by my sister in law who has been here 2 summers in a row with her little ones ages 2,4,10. The place is great- as far as location, amenities and environment! Guest services are very helpful and nice. My 8 yr old twins loved the outdoor and indoor pool. We enjoyed... More

We are so glad the FSK was a hit! The family movie is a great way to wind down after a day at the beach. The Tempurpedic Mattress is a great nights sleep! Thank you for writing, Annemarie Dickerson Owner More

Great indoor waterpark and pool for small kids. Basic Put Put, and nice pool, volley ball, and playground. Free Shuttle to boardwalk is great feature. Great location just out of town. Diner on site, with great breakfast and lunch food. Will go back soon.

I rate F.S.K. a 4.5 out of 5 and recommend it to all !!Good location, relaxing, camp-like atmosphere, yet only a 2 minute drive to beach. Ranch-style buildings are closer to main entrance, quieter location, easy access, and of course no stairs needed. If you plan on driving around the area, there are several ways in/out of resort (traffic). Gas... More

WOW... what a great overview. I have noted the constructive items listed for our September managers meeting. We are always looking for ways to improve and we do listen to our guests. The extended day came from our guests that had to cut their vacations days short. We look forward to seeing you all again soon! Sincerely Annemarie Dickerson Owner More

This was the very best place we could have stayed in OC with children. We took four grandchildren ages from 7-13. We never had to leave the premises. They had a choice of indoor or outdoor pools - both were great, but the indoor pool had a pirate theme and slides for the kids too. There was putt putt golf,... More
