Make a splash in Lake County, Ind.
Just off Interstate 65 in Northwest Indiana, you'll find Deep River Waterpark, one of the largest water parks in Chicagoland and northern Indiana. This family-friendly Lake County Parks facility has a wide variety of rides for the timid to the thrilling and from infants to seniors, so there's something for everyone.
Open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day, Deep River Waterpark not only says it is family friendly, it backs it up by being "cooler friendly," offering a wide range of admission prices and packages, and a variety of events, including Food Bank Mondays and Family Tubin' Tuesdays, where the park is open until 9:30 p.m. to accommodate working families. And SpongeBob SquarePants visits every summer, usually in mid-July.
At the park, you'll find plenty of places to cool off inside and out, and an abundance of food and beverage options with a relaxed theme throughout the water park. Looking for something to bring home to remember your day? The US30 Surf Shop has lots of gifts, beach items and goodies.
