We are season pass holders, 3rd year. The water has always been clean when we have come. It gets crowded even at opening time so I would advise getting there early. You can buy multiple locker tokens at once so you don’t have to stand...More

Have never had a bad experience at this community waterpark. It is geared toward small children 2 to 10. Small waterslides except one larger one. Lap pool for those that can swim without water wings or life vests. They have cabana's you can rent for...More

Great place not too crowded.. Renting a cabana is worth the $. If you don't rent a cabana Arrive early if shade is important.. Food was pretty good. Lazy river is perfect for the adults while kids play! Will definitely return.

Great place to take your kids. A little expensive for the location and amount of water activities but I loved that every two hours they make all the children get out of the water for a potty break. This allows those without little kids to...More

It was great for my 2 year old and 1 year old . Just get there right when they open for parking . The kids loved it . Lifeguards can be a little more cheerful , but I guess it's the heat .

We love The Cove. We have been going for four summers now. I have two daughters that are 5 years apart, and finding things that are appropriate for both of them can sometimes pose a problem. The Cove is the solution to that problem. It...More
