    Water parks
    offer plenty of refreshing summertime fun for the whole family. Best of all,
    they have something for everyone, from the adrenaline-pumping thrills of
    steep water slides to obstacle courses, lazy rivers and those splash pads the
    little ones just can’t seem to get enough of. Here are a few places you can
    indulge your love of camping and have lots of fun at a water park at the same


    MARYLAND | Yogi Bear’s Jellystone
    Park™ Camp-Resort


    This Maryland park offers not just one 400’ water side, but TWO of
    them that are named Ranger’s Revenge and Picnic Plunge. They’re part of a
    huge water playground called Yogi Bear’s Water Zone which also includes a
    3,200 square foot interactive pool, an 8-foot rain drop, and built-in seating
    with hydro-therapy jets for the adults to enjoy! The kids will love the
    interactive splash pad. It’s filled with fun features like a pirate ship,
    water cannons, a slide and blasters. Check the park’s website to see the
    dates the water park is open. Prime season runs from June 9 to September


    VIRGINIA | Williamsburg

    This 180-acre campground, located minutes from historic Colonial
    Williamsburg, not only has its own heated pool and splash pad — it makes the
    ideal “home base” for visiting Water Country
    . This massive water park has a wide variety of
    attractions like the 1,500’ Hubba Hubba Highway river adventure, the Malibu
    Pipeline and Meltdown flume rides, and an “epic” drop slide called Vanish
    Point. There’s also the Surfer’s Bay Wave Pool, and attractions specially
    designed for kids, including the Cow-A-Bunga splash zone and the H2O and
    Kritter Korral water playgrounds.

    Wild Weekend that will include a dive-in movie, water wars, water balloons, a
    Slip N Slide and Wibit contests.


    OHIO | Austin Lake
