my children love this waterpark. we come here yearly!! I definitely recommend it to any families that need a getaway from chicago. Its not a far drive and its great for ages 0-12 years old. I think teenagers may find it boring after the 1st day but it's perfect for young kids.

Very nice waterpark and reasonable rates. The life guards are very loyal to their role. The food at the lodge is awesome and once again very reasonable. Highly recommend. We used the deal package on the dates listed.

The proximity to Chicago makes Timber Ridge Lodge and Waterpark ideal for a mini vacation for families with little kids. The hotel rooms need some updating. We had a very comfortable 2 bedroom suite.However, It was way too cold in the main living area which included the kitchen. The upstairs loft room was too warm The carpets need some attention....

Overall a pleasant experience. Lots of fun for families and many activities for kids. However, our room had areas that were not clean. There was scotch tape stuck on the wall from previous guests. There was a stain on the wall that looked like something sprayed all over. In the waterpark, the stairs to the water slides had numerous wooden... More

I went to Lake Geneva on a weekend girls trip. There were 5 of us staying in the room. The room we booked had 1 bedroom with a king bed, a living room (with a fireplace), a small balcony, big bathroom and a full kitchen. We had no interest in the waterpark, but this hotel was the same price as... More

I stayed here recently with my family-mom, sister, husband and 7 year old daughter. We have never done the "water park" experience and I was not sure what to expect. Check in and out was easy and quick, the room (2 bedroom suite) was clean and very spacious. The staff at every encounter was friendly and helpful. the lifeguards were... More

For the size of the rooms they are a bit small, but with the amenities the hotel has to offer the price is more reasonable. The one room is a bit cramped so I'd say the two room is more bang for your buck. The water park is fun but the lifeguards are so bored they need something to do... More

I will say the rooms are huge and very clean. One bedroom suites have one bed, and a pull out couch. I would probably go with the two room, so there are beds for people. Smokeys restaurant was very good. I was double charged, once to my room and once to my credit card. The waterpark is ridiculous! I knew... More

Celebrating my daughter's birthday and had a great time! The Waterpark was clean, lifeguards were visible and helpful. The kids enjoyed the arcade and the activities offered during our stay. Shopped at the local Walmart and made breakfast and dinner in the room. We will be back!!!!
