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.

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' -...More
