Just a little trip to the coast

Wonderful as always. Kids had a blast. Water is warm just how I like it. Reasonably priced even for just 2 hours.

Best place in Fort Bragg! It has 3 exciting features that set it apart from other pools. A fantastic lazy river, a diving board, and of course an amazing water slide.It also has a large pool and other non aquatic features.

After a day of riding bicycles and exploring the area on a father-son camping trip we decided to go for a swim. The staff was very friendly and the locker room was clean. The kids area was nice. The highlight of the stop was the lazy river, even I enjoyed it. After a couple days of dry camping the showers... More

Great place for kids and adults. The lazy river and water slide are the best! If you are an "out of towner" it's not cheap, but worth it.

This is a huge facility with workout rooms, fitness classes, slides in the big pool, a resistance walking pool for elders, and a dog park and skate park on the grounds. It cost millions and was a stretch for small Ft Bragg, but it is truly a gem and not to be missed if one visits the area.

This place was pretty cool. They should have better advertisement for the non-locals. Not bad pricing either. My son swam from 1-4pm for only $9. Will def be back!
