This was our first visit to Big Splash at Arrowwood. My wife and I brought our 4 year old grandson and it did not disappoint. There is something for everyone. Big Splash was closed for a couple week for a face lift for a couple of weeks and just reopened 2 days before our visit May 22nd. There is a... More

The water is warm! The kids really enjoyed the water slides. My granddaughter enjoyed everything about it. As an adult, I loved spending time with my grandkids going down the slide and floating in the lazy river. I enjoyed the hot tub with my spouse and older children. As a family we all had a great time!

Returned to Arrowwood for a second visit. Spent the weekend with our kids and grandkids. Plenty to do with Big Splash being the most attractive. Had pools, slides, waterplay for even the youngest.

Nothing special, it has a pool, kiddie pool, lazy river, hot tub and 2 big waterslides. But the waterslide is moldy, and the hot tub has dirt and has many interesting colors. I got sick from the smoothie, and lazy river is more of a "get squirted river". Need I say more???

We did not use the water park, but utilized the Golf Course. This was our first visit to Arrowwood, only going there as the pictures on the web looked very nice. We have been to several golf courses, even in the area, and this was the worst we have ever played. Grass around the green very long, very few markers,... More

This water park is looking down in the mouth. The resort is very large and the money is being spent on new housing units which look great and are likely expensive.

This was our third annual visit in the cottages. The new cottages are now open, which we toured but did not stay in. Staff continues to excel. We only ate at the outdoor cafe by the pool, where the food and service were very good. Boat dock has had some minor improvements (cletes for ropes). I suggested they put up... More
