“Lovely place to spend the day. Tired of sandy beaches? There's no sand here! We try to make a stop here once a year and it's definitely worth getting a Cabana.  Lots of slides, tubing and a wave pool. At times it can be crowded, but we always enjoy our stay. The food can be expensive, but that's expected on vacation.” -Google Review
