The park is well laid out, the spring is breathtaking and very refreshing. The downsides are always very crowded, the snack bar server was not very happy and very forgetful, some of the other people that were there to enjoy the Springs were rude and...More

We are glad you enjoyed your visit! We recommend in the summer that guests arrive by 7am (we've had some arriving as early as 4am recently) for the 8am opening.

Nice family place. The only negative thing that only little round floating device is allow or rent one before going in.

I have always have my floats blown up before getting to the park. But I have heard they do have somewhere you can blow them up. I would just call the park to make sure. You can bring your own float as long as it's not over 5... More

Tubes are the best and safest way to go. If u do not have tubes you can rent them before u go in $3.00 all day for small ones and$7.00 for adult ones all day.
