Spring fed water. Beach everywhere. Picnic/bbq areas all around. Public bathrooms are clean. Lifeguards float around in kayaks. Kids have to take a swim test to prove they can swim unsupervised. Overall very nice place. I will visit again next summer.

Fantasy Lake is a good time for the whole family. A good alternative to driving all the way to the coast. The water is pretty clean and warm. So if you like colder water you may be upset. They have plenty of slides and rope attractions to enjoy the water. We saw alot of people perform some funky water entries... More

My older 4 children spent most of there time on the water slides. The open water was nice also. Was a very CLEAN park!!!!! Had enough... More

We had never heard of Fantasy Lake, until our daughter invited us to join her and some friends there. Prior to our visit we were able to get discounted admission tickets from Groupon. Our group of 12 included kids, young adults, and us "seniors". The water park is built at a lake, with picnic pavilions, BBQ grills, and tables; the... More

We traveled over 2 hours with our church Youth group to Fantasy Lake. I wasn't expecting much, admittedly, and was very presently surprised! The water was refreshing and the place was not at all crowded. My two teens had a blast on the Tarzan swings and enjoyed the drop slides. There is a great variety of activities for all ages... More

Daily and Season Passes are available, as are locker rentals & lots of free parking. Very family-friendly (no swearing allowed!) Fantasy Lake has been in operation for well over 20 years. It isn't a big, fancy water park, and it doesn't have 'pool water' - it's what its name states, a 'lake' (manmade), so it has green water that's circulated,... More

We purchased a groupon for a visit here and we're there when the park opened. We were greeted by friendly people who gave us very clear directions about the facility. Our sons really enjoyed the kid section, the slides and pedal boats especially. They tried the zip ropes but found them too difficult at their ages of 5 and 3.... More

So much to do and very affordable. Don't think 'water park' like a concrete pad full of chlorine but rather think of it has a sandy bottom lake. No colorful slides to entice your eyes but plenty of wooden structures to test your level of adventure and/or determine your level of being a chicken. :) Family friendly and ZERO tolerance... More
