“Overpriced and not much to do”

Cameron Run Regional Park
Ranked #36 of 96 things to do in Alexandria
Attraction details
Reviewed 22 May 2012

I thought this place was a little pricey for the lack of activities. The wave pool was small, and there were only a few other water slides and attractions.

Well, this is a difficult view to write, as I remember Cameron Run in its heyday. I used to go here often as a kid and I loved the wave pool and the slides!

The park consists of a mini-golf course, that you can pay separately to use, a wave pool, a kiddie pool, and several very long water slides. The water slides are great fun though!

Now a days, it is still great fun for kids, but it is run down. It needs a renovation badly. The wave pool is very fun and the slides have been upgraded recently. That being said, it is not very expensive so it is a good place to take kids. Just be aware that it is not as well-taken care of as most amusement parks and don't expect it to be.

The wave pool was nice, but the place was truly worn down.

The refreshment stand offered only unhealthy options. The lifeguard staff seems to be of a different quality than the food-service staff, who truly didn't seem to care about the icky sticky floor and the long line.

They had a huge crowd, so some customers are definitely happy. The season pass is a good deal if you live close by. It is cheaper than a pool membership.

Running right next to the Capital Beltway Interstate 495 you can't hear yourself think, but it also has Great Waves swim park there in summer. That is a good time for the kids.
