“A great way to spend the day with the kids!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

The water park is a staple in our summer entertainment. The prices are very reasonable. Be aware of the hours because some days are military only. Leave a few minutes early to get thru gate check.

“Check the web page for hours and dates..different for military”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

On our first visit to the water park this year, we found all the usual safety measures and crystal clear water. The days and prices are different for military and civilian guests, so make sure you know this before you go. Call if you have any questions and make sure everybody in the car has their drivers license and you have your car registration before you enter Fort Jackson. The lazy river is wonderful and only 3 1/2 ft deep, so good for all ages. They water slides are many with varied heights depending on your courage and expertise. The kiddie area is safe, secure and has a sprinkler system the kids love running through. You cannot bring in outside drinks or food, but the snack bar has lots of options at reasonable prices: hamburgers, pizza, hotdogs, nachos, popcorn, etc. There are lockers if you want to secure your items, tables scattered around and plenty of shade if you need it. The covered playground is a great way to get the kids out of the sun. if you want to leave and get back in on the same day, ask for a wristband as you go out. Compared to other water park prices, this is a good deal whether you are military or civilian.
