Overview
More
Heated, Olympic sized 50 meter swimming pool with ten, seven and five meter diving platforms as well as three and one meter spring boards. Curly slides for the ride of your life or the new speed slides shoot you down at over 35 miles per hour. Lots of grass space for picnicking or you can purchase food at the on-site grill. Outdoor pool is open the summer months only. the Indoor Aquatic Center is open all year with a poolside climbing wall, springboards and basketball hoops. Heated floors throughout the dressing rooms provide warmth and comfort for all swimmers. Coming in winter of 2013 is an indoor kiddie play area with all the fun a zero depth splash and play area can provide. Year round fun coupled with access to the World Famous Hot Pools make this a must see and do destination.

Maybe it’s completely within water safety guidelines, but one lifeguard circling two busy pools seems dangerous to me. I don’t take my eyes off my kids anyway, but still.

A little pricey, but we got the combo passes and went to the hot springs. Convenient to have when you are camping and perfect for family reunions.

We were having a blast until one female lifeguard ruined it all... They were letting my daughter ride on my lap to go down the red slide then they changed lifeguards up there (she didn't even wear a lifeguard shirt or dress like the others)...More

Hi, Thank you for your question. No the river is not open, it is very high right now and dangerous. The local tube stands will not be renting tubes either for a while. Thank you.
