Kids enjoy the new water park at Lake George RV Park in Lake George, N.Y.

A new water park is thrilling campers at Lake George RV Park in Lake George, N.Y., according to The Post Star.

On July 1, the park opened a splash pad, complete with a water slide, sloped-entry pool and a large hot tub capable of seating 38 people.

“I feel like we’re in a resort,” said Jo-Ann Epstein after relaxing in the hot tub.

Epstein, a teacher from Fairfield, Conn., has a seasonal camper at the park. Her children were so excited about the new amenities that they were counting down the days until the splash pad opened.

It took 10 years to design and 10 months to build, said park President Dave King. It was a multimillion dollar project.

“We were watching trends in the industry and figuring out what our guests would really like,” he said.

They seemed to have guessed right: campers thanked him effusively as he strolled through Cascade Cove with a reporter.

This fall, the park might add a poolside bar. There are also fireplaces and a fire pit near the pool, waiting for autumn weather.

But the main goal was to make children happy, King said.

“The majority of our guests are families with that younger age group, toddler to 12,” he said. “This is pretty awesome to entertain the younger set.”
