Really nice place with lots of fun things for younger kids. Watermark is clean and nice. Smaller than a place like Kalahari, but more personal and manageable too. Really more for younger kids, but everyone will still have fun regardless of age. We Causally took late teens and they had a good time too.

The hotel is very cleaning. The staff seems to be very nice.. The water park is big enough for the whole family to enjoy. Very well kept up . The room is a pretty good size. The microwave and refrigerator do come in handy . The only downfall to this trip is everything cost money money money. The paw passes... More

This was our second visit to the lodge and we rented two rooms. The children's ages ranged from 3-8. They loved the water park. The lifeguards are very sharp and " on their toes". The water activities appeal to all ages.The children enjoyed the magic quest and story time. We had an extra treat a " magic show" - the... More

Check in was quick and easy was given wolf ears for our daughter and asked for ears for the adults and was given those as well.

We stayed at this hotel in July. The room was large and the kids had a separate little room with bunk beds that was really cute. However, the kids beds had a hard mattress and it was wrapped in plastic under the sheets so it was kind of noisy but they didn't mind. Adult bed was fine. Carpet was a... More

This resort is wonderful for people with kids. The hotel is clean, safe, and very welcoming. When you walk through the door to check in there is a catchy song playing and they have a spot for the kids to color while you wait. Once you get your keys the kids get their wolf years and the whole way down... More

We originally booked this reservation with our teenage daughter in mind. She ended up not going because of another stay away camp opportunity and so my wife and I ended up going there ourselves. We initially felt out of place without having children with us but we enjoyed the waterpark ourselves along with the outdoor pool and bar. We invited... More

We stayed here for three nights in July 2014. Our kids are five and eight. The kids loved it. We stayed in a Kid Kamp room. They enjoyed having their own cabin complete with bunk beds and TV. The extra money for the Kid Kamp was worth it because they really left us alone whenever we were in the room.... More

We have been to this location at least once a year since they opened. Check in was less friendly than in the past. Not sure if person was tired or new. She gave me wrong amount of wristbands and then didn't give us our gold bands (not a huge deal). We usually get a special bag of goodies since they... More

We stayed one night. All in all I gave it five stars. When we booked a room we did one with the little mini cabin for kids. When we checked in they said we booked two queen beds. I didn't feel like arguing it and I'm glad I didn't. We really didn't spend any time in the room. For a... More
