An hour north of Milwaukee, it’s always a comfortable 84 degrees inside Blue Harbor’s 54,000-square-foot entertainment area and waterpark, located inside of a stately resort along the shores of Lake Michigan.


The littles ones can head to the colorful new Toddler Tides play structure for an age-appropriate waterslide and fun spray features. Older kids will love the four-story water center in Breaker Bay with suspension bridges, cargo nets, and four thrilling waterslides. Two of the waterslides are three stories high! The whole family can head to the recreation pool for water basketball and sea creatures you can climb on. There’s also a leisure river and whirlpool when you‘re ready to relax.


Don’t miss the Riptide, the only double surf simulator in eastern Wisconsin. Use their boards to boogie board and surf on the waves here year round.


If you want to feel like a VIP, rent a private cabana for your family right alongside the water park. Lounge on comfortable furniture, and enjoy a flat screen television and mini-fridge stocked with bottled water.

Head to the Pier Fun Zone Arcade to win prizes, or try your hand at glow-in-the-dark miniature golf. The bright neon balls and decorations make for a memorable experience.


During the summer months, guests have access to Lake Michigan and a beautiful view of it from the outdoor pool. There’s also a lovely walking path along the water.

Over 45,000 square feet of water park adventures await you just outside of Milwaukee at The Springs Water Park. Your family will love exploring the high-speed raft and body slides, the relaxing lazy river, activity pool with water basketball & lily pad rope walk, indoor and outdoor whirlpool, and interactive arcade. Don’t miss the the Triple Dog Dare, a 362 ft. long boat slide for up to three people. For little kids, head to Waukesha Waterworks, a zero depth entry interactive area with a 600 gallon dump bucket, squirting water cannons, small water slides, water geysers, and more.

Moose Mountain Falls is less than an hour’s drive from Milwaukee, and it’s Timber Ridge Lodge's very own 50,000 square-foot indoor and outdoor waterpark. If you’re up for a thrill, slide down the 35-foot-high, 300-foot twisting slides. If you’d rather take it slow, the 500 foot Lazy River might be for you. Little kids will be entertained at the Tiny Timbers area with swings, slides, spouts, and a mushroom waterfall. For fun for the whole family, head to the activity pool with a rope climb and water basketball court.

The Tundra Lodge waterpark — the largest of its kind in Green Bay — is a 30,0000-square-foot aquatic playground. Climb three-stories to the top of Moosejaw Mountain, rocket down the Alaskan Pipeline or swoosh along 500 feet of whirling, swirling rapids on the Polar Plunge water slides. Or you can chill out on Elk Island River — Green Bay’s only lazy river. During the warmer months, you can splash in the sun in the outdoor splash pad and Jacuzzi (which stays open as long as the "feels like temperature" is at least 10 degrees above zero). Even the smallest of swimmers will have fun splashing through Tenderfoot Falls. Once you need a break from the water, slide over to the Gold Rush Arcade, where you’ll find more than 70 arcade games.
