Had a great time at this spot. Cheap family fun. Recommend this if you are in the area! Tubes are less than $10 each if you rent out of the park. Bring your own, water isn't deep in most parts so nothing extravagant is required....More

Yes, you can bring in coolers, most everyone does. There are tons on picnic tables around the spring,in the concession area and all around the parking areas. There are a limited amount of grill areas.
