Dollywood’s Splash Country: a Great Pigeon Forge Water Park

Dollywood’s Splash Country is your summer destination to beat the heat and enjoy some cool, wet fun in the Smoky Mountains. Even in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, the heat and humidity during the height of summer can have you searching for ways to cool off during your vacation. Thankfully, Dollywood’s Splash Country is open from Memorial Day through Labor Day every year, and you and your entire group can enjoy a day in the water along with all the slides, rides and thrills that Dollywood is famous for.

This Pigeon Forge water park is filled with numerous slides and attractions, dining opportunities and entertainment, spread over 35 acres adjacent to the main Dollywood amusement and theme park. When the days heat up, Splash Country is a great way to enjoy the great outdoors during your Smoky Mountain trip.

The attractions are obviously the main draw of any water park, and Splash Country doesn’t disappoint when it comes to offering thrills and relaxation. For the daring members of your party, there are exciting water slides such as Fire Tower Falls, Mountain Scream, and the Butterfly to give you a rush of adrenaline. You can also get a taste of the white water rafting experience on Raging River Rapids and RiverRush, without even having to book a guided excursion.

If you prefer your water park trips to be a little calmer, Splash Country has plenty of places for you to chill out and savor the experience. You can take a dip in the Cascades, a massive lagoon-style pool with interactive water features, or float luxuriously in the Downbound Float Trip lazy river while enjoying some mountain scenery. There are even private retreats and canopies available to rent if you want a private space to relax.

Treat the entire family to a day of water park excitement

When you’re ready to take a break from the slides and pools, Splash Country features plenty of other ways for you to have fun. The variety of dining options, including a taco stand, campsite grill and ice-cream shops, means you can spend the entire day at the park and maximize your time on all the rides. You can even reserve a picnic in the park for your entire family in advance. There are also several shops in the park in case you need to stock up on essentials, or if you want to bring home some souvenirs from your experience.
