Attraction details
Owner description: Wake Nation is a new type of water park (one of only 8 in the entire U.S.) that lets you wakeboard, water ski, and kneeboard WITHOUT the use of a boat. The entire park is designed to provide the ultimate ride experience to both first timers and experienced riders. It’s great for anyone age 5 or older. Just bring your bathing suit as they’ve got everything else you need. The Wake Nation season runs from April through October.

“Not worth the time or money”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2012

Had a HORRIBLE DAY at Wake Nation today. Practice pond was closed; cables on the main lake had issues all day. The employees let their 7 friend’s line jump and ride repetitively for 5 laps while the rest of us waited an average of 47 minutes between rides. We were issued a partial refund but it was still a wasted day. If you are friends with the employees you will have a great day, otherwise, avoid this place.

“Lots of Fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

We are a ski boating, wave running, boarding, tubing and houseboating family--and have tons of experience in the water activity events--and whenever we want to take someone new out to enjoy the fun of these activities we start here. If they like this then we take them out for the real behind the boat experience.

A plus to the area fo Hamilton's Joyce park on the Hamilton-Fairfield City limits. Only been around for a few years but is a really nice attraction in the area and fun too.

“Awesome place to ride the waves without being in Florida”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

I took my family to this place for my daughters16th birthday. We had a blast. We had never water ski before and let alone on a man made lake.
We had hours of fun and we also went knee boarding too. The staff were all extremly polite and aiming to please. Wake nation is defintely a family fun water adventure for all ages in Fairfield/Hamilton.
