I stayed for business in their confrrence center. Rooms clean and very well decorated. Liked having the microwave and refrigerator in room. The soaps smell so amazing I took them home. Very quite room. The pool area would be a childs dream. Waterslide and pirate ship. Everyone was so nice snd helped however they could. We did eat supper onsite at the Castaways. Very good sandwich. Easy acess from interstate snd plenty of other restaurants in area.

Thanks for your sharing your thoughts regarding our water park. The kids really do enjoy the ship and the slides. It is amazing they can enter the water park and go non-stop as long as they do. I hear they sleep well and then they are back at it again before check out the following morning..
