This extensive recreation facility is located about 10 minutes east of downtown and affords a number of active possibilities--targeted to families.
The beach along the 14,000-acre J. Percy Priest Lake is popular for those looking to relax in the sun. The marina offers boat rentals (pontoons and personal water craft). There is also an 18-hole mini golf course, basket ball courts, volleyball area, "kayak cove," and "float city."
The Big Splash pool area, The Wacky Pond Kiddie Pool, and 9 water slides are sure-fire kid pleasers.
The park is typically open from late May through Labor Day. Check the site for specifics. No outside food is allowed. There are concession stands, but don't expect anything too healthy.
Prices range from $20-$33
Treetop Adventure has separate pricing of $30-$35 and offers suspended bridges, zip lines, Tarzan swings and more. There are four courses and they range in "challenge".
