Many of us have fond childhood memories of spending all summer at the local pool or beach, but summer recreation has come a long way since we were kids. Make this the Summer-of-Swimming for you and your adventure-loving kid(s) and add these water and beach inflatable destinations to your Summer Bucket List. Enjoy floating water slides, trampolines, climbing walls, and much more. Check out each individual site for admission, hours and more info.
Located minutes north of highway 41, Plamann Lake offers all day admission (and discounted evening admission) to access the beach and WIBIT floating playground. Be sure to pack a picnic as carry-ins are allowed (no glass or alcohol allowed) and spend the day soaking up the sun and fun.
Note: When you arrive at the lake, you will need to sign up for a time slot to play on the large inflatables. Small inflatables found near the shallow end are available at all times to smaller children. No personal inflatables or life jackets are allowed but life jackets are provided and required for WIBIT play. See complete rules here.
