A great value!

Multiple pools. One of the pools was warmer than Evans Plunge. Family changing room available. Coin lockers. Mesh umbrellas block some of the sun.

I've enjoyed playing in spearfish. Nice area and the competition has gotten better. Reasonable cost to drop in and play Pickleball with down to earth players. My only concern is that we've been placed on the skating rink floor and I've had to put my knee brace back on. As I listened to other players they're resorting to knew braces... More

The rec center is kind of old and small but the outdoor pool is great for small children and teenagers.

Great water park with lots of space. We went there the end of August when most tourists are not in the area and we practically had the place to ourselves. My boys 6 and 9 had a blast. They both went on all 3 of the larger slides. There are 2 that empty in to 3.5 ft of water and... More

Fun water park! Low entrance fee nice clean facilities. Lots of shaded seating. Splash pad, kiddie pool, regular pool, deep pool, climbing wall, lazy river, 3 fun slides (especially the red one!), cheap healthy snack choice and many other details I may have forgotten makes this a great way to spend the day.

We took our 2-year old daughter and niece here on our last day in the Black Hills. Children under 3 get in free and adults were only $8, so it was an inexpensive day. We knew it was small so we weren't expecting much, but they packed a lot into a small park. There are three water slides (including one... More

After looking at the price (yikes!) and reading the reviews, we made a deal where would stop here on our way back from visiting the Devil's Tower. What a delightful place to spend time!

Too expensive for the people on strict budgets ( large families). The swimming pool is nice for kids and they have something for almost everyone but the disabled really. Yes they can wheel you in to the kids Pool and you can sit in the real shallow water but hey at least you can get a nice sunburn lol. I... More
