Beat the heat this summer with a family trip to Dollywood’s Splash Country ! From waterslides to wave pools, there are plenty of ways to stay cool on your next vacation. After you spend a day riding all the roller coasters at Dollywood, step next door and check out the best waterpark in the Smokies. Here is everything you need to know about Dollywood’s Splash Country:

There are Rides for Everyone

Whether you’re looking for the fastest and biggest water slides or just wanting to soak up some rays, there is a spot for you at Splash Country! Try the River Rush, a 1,175-foot-long “water coaster” filled with drops, spins, and tunnels. If you want to catch some waves, visit Mountain Waves, a 25,000-square-foot, family-friendly wave pool with smaller waves for the kids and bigger “swells” for the adults. For your little ones, take them to Little Creek Falls, a toddler-friendly children’s pool that includes slides, fountains, and interactive play structures.

There are Plenty of Food Options

We know it is hard to compete with all the amazing food next door in Dollywood, but Splash Country offers awesome eats and drinks. After working up an appetite, your family can enjoy a burger and fried at the Campsite Grill or nachos at Trailhead Tacos. Save room for dessert and try a delicious pastry from BeaverTails or frozen concessions from Splash and Dash Sundries. You’ll never run out of places to eat at Splash Country!

You Can Rent Hangouts Throughout the Park

If you want to feel like a VIP on your next trip to Dollywood’s Splash Country you can rent out canopies, luxury loungers, and even a 200-square-foot “Retreat” with a personal sun deck. Splash Country provides these canopies, loungers, and retreats all throughout the water park so you can choose where your party sets up! Pick a canopy by TailSpin racer and watch people zip down the slide or relax in your retreat by the Wild River Falls and watch your family race down the flumes.
