When can I begin using the pool?
As soon you have paid in full you may start using the pool.
What do I need to do when I arrive at the pool?
Assuming you are fully paid up, just sign in at the gate and you're good to go. If you need to pay for any guests, please head up to the snack shack to pay for your guest(s) ($5 per guest per day). If you arrive outside the snack shack's normal hours, please pay a lifeguard during the next adult swim (thank you for not talking to them while they're lifeguarding). Pool guests will receive a wristband showing that they have paid. Lifeguards will use the 15 minute adult swim to walk the pool deck and check memberships.
When is adult swim?
Every hour on the hour, all members and guests under the age of 18 will be asked to exit the pool for 10 minutes. This time allows the lifeguards to rest, check memberships and accept guest pass money. The kiddie pool remains open during this time.
Can I bring food and drink to the pool?
Can I bring swim toys (floaties, noodles, etc.) to the pool?
How much do guest passes cost?
Guest passes are $5 per person per day. Children age 2 and under do not need a guest pass. If you plan to use several guest passes throughout the summer, you may want to consider purchasing a sheet of 5 guest passes for $20. Guest passes can be purchased at the snack shack.
Do I have to pay for out of town guests?
If you have out of town guests (from 50+ miles away), they may accompany you to the pool at no charge.
Under what conditions will the pool close?
The pool closes for 30 minutes after the most recent audible thunderclap. If the forecast looks rainy throughout most of the day, we may close the pool.
