17 Fox Cities Indoor Swimming Pools for a Splashing Good Time!

YMCA Appleton Splash Pad

Looking for somewhere to swim indoors in the Fox Cities or surrounding areas? We’ve got you covered in the winter months and on rainy days in the summer months when the outdoor pools are not available, with indoor pools that are open to the public. 

Indoor pools are generally open year-round but might be unavailable for guest use when there are lessons or birthday parties happening. 

We’ve used reader feedback, team experience, and research to find the best indoor swimming pool in the Fox Valley. 

Please see individual websites for hours, safety measures, additional information, or if you have questions. Keep in mind that indoor hotel pools generally do not have lifeguards present.

Some local hotels also have outdoor pools open from around Memorial Day to Labor Day also. 

Note: We do our best to ensure that all information on Go Valley Kids is accurate, but locations with indoor swimming pools may close or change their availability for open swim based on staffing, events, or maintenance issues.

Check individual websites for availability, or we’ve also listed phone numbers to call ahead, which we’ve found to be the surest bet for quickly getting the information you need at many of these locations.
