Give Southwest Ohio a lake and we will put a water park on it! We’ve rounded up the top lakeside water parks to visit with your family before summer is over.
The Splash Blast Lake Obstacle Course is a huge win for older children and adults! The blow up course is quite impressive and tons of fun. When not splashing in the lake, Kirkwood offers a full kitchen, mini golf, canopy trail, splash pad, mini frisbee golf and sports arena. | 5719 OH-73, Wilmington, OH 45177
The beach area at Mineral Springs just went through a huge expansion with lots of fun inflatables for all ages. With a huge water slide, kayak, canoe and stand up paddleboard rentals, the crystal clear water at the springs is worth a visit! Children over age 16 can enjoy over 240 acres of ATV trails for riding. | 160 Blue Gill Rd, Peebles, Ohio
New at Aqua Adventures this year is the toddler splash pad and 10 slide mountain. Always improving, Land of Illusion earns back the title of “Ohio’s Largest Inflatable Slide” at a whopping 36 feet tall slide! With a large sandy beach for relaxing and giant inflatables, add Aqua Adventures to your bucket list. | 8762 Thomas Rd, Middletown, OH 45042
The adventures at Pine Lake Waterpark are plentiful! Take a cable ride over the lake, balance on the floating log walk, bob along in a “bobber” teeter totter, racer slides, splash pad, duck boats, jump towers and so much more! | 4640 W State Rd 218, Berne, IN 46711
At the cash only recreation center at Longs Retreat, there’s plenty of lakeside and dry-land activities for all ages. Beach swimming includes a splash pad, tube slide and diving boards on the lake. On dry land, grab a pizza from the Oasis or rent paddle boats, canoes, ride a kiddie train, play miniature golf, race go-carts or bounce on inflatables with an all day pass. | 50 Bell Hollow Rd, Latham, OH 45646
