Nice for kids almost nothing for adults. Park was clean and staff friendly. Price is mid to upper range for what they offer. But it is the best water park for a hundred miles in any direction.

Found this park while trying to entertain the grandkids....the admission was reasonable (military discount...yes). Park was clean, no lines and staff was wonderful. Food prices were reasonable as well....no highway robbery! If in the area...take the family...enough said

With a recent trip to Six Flags water park I had some reservations about this water park. However I was pleasantly surprised! We went on a Monday and there were tons of chairs in the shade & lines were very short. My kids ages 3-8 spent 5 hours there and were busy the whole time. Food was very reasonable. There... More

While visiting Lake Barkley in July we needed a cool place to take kids other than the Lake. We found this park online and were not disappointed with it. The admission was very reasonable (they offer discounts for following them on Instagram a few days a week). The park was very clean and we never had to wait in line... More

My husband grew up near Venture River and went a lot as a kid, he wanted to share the experience with me and our kids so we went. The ticket prices are reasonable. It was $25 for anyone over 54" and $19 for under 54". They offer cabana rentals and although the two chair cabanas were all rented out for... More

Nice employees, love the wave pool and lazy river. My kids and I have come here for ten years, and they love the slides. Private cabanas available for rent. Entrance fee is a little high, but if you stay the entire day, it is worth it. Food is pricey as with any attraction, but you can get a stamp to... More

I've gone to this park several times over 15 years and they have only added 2 new things in that time. It's a bit expensive for a family of 6 and you have to take your tubes up and the 4 people tubes get a bit heavy going up a couple flights of stairs. We will probably stick with Santa... More

Our group had a blast at this water park. There is a wide variety of thrilling slides as well as a lazy river and wave pool. The food for sale in the park is affordable and pretty good. The kids loved the dip 'n dots and us adults loved the roasted candied pecans and cashews as well as the homemade... More
