Pros: Rooms are clean and fresh. First floor rooms have additional exit doors to parking lot or lake. Water at the water park is warmer than other parks. Water park staff isn’t as strict with slides and rope bridges as other parks – kids can actually have more fun. Free external activities are kid-friendly and are environmentally focused with knowledgeable staff.
Cons: Restaurant is expensive for so-so food. We sampled both dinner and breakfast in the restaurant. The water park is VERY small for the size of the resort. There were only ~75 chairs and 5 lazy river double tubes and 4 single tubes - for the entre park population. Don’t expect to find a comfortable place to sit if arriving later on a weekend day. The lazy river should be called lazy creek as it elevates to less than two feet deep at one point and is extremely short. Since the water park is so small, it has a crowded feeling and there isn’t much room to actually swim… unless it is practically empty. (The web site makes it look bigger than it really is) Like most water parks, the air inside was on the cold side which could stand to be warmer in the winter. The water park closes at 9 PM which felt too early for my family. The floors sound thin and people walking above us are too easily heard – again, we were on the lower lever (or 1st) floor. Don’t stay on the first floor if you require a dark room to sleep. The patio lights shine brightly through the extra door window which is not 100% block-able.
