We went on a hot, sunday so it was crowded but we managed to score 2 chairs at the Mountainside Park. This is the only public access waterpark, the other two parks are for resort guests.
However this one has a pool for everyone. One large water slide, that you ride tubes down. Kids must be 48" tall to use it. One small waterslide with no tubes for tikes...more

We went to my husbands company work party and had a great time! We even had free entertainment watching animal control try to remove the raccoons that had taken over the Grrrrr water slide. I do recommend that the fun zone sells socks for those that have never been and don't know. Otherwise we have a great time:)

I'm a Mad River Valley locale and have never even considered going to Smuggs with my kids on a hot summer day. They simply don't market to us, which is a shame, because the assortment of waterslides, pools, and hot tubs kept my teens happy all day long.
Bring your own towels and pack a picnic lunch. If you are a VT resident, you get half off the day pass. A perfect splurge for your staycation.

I do like taking my family to the Mountain Side Pool area. But only only weekdays. Also only justifiable if you either have a VT ID--$24/adult or buy the 360 Adult Season Pass, which I did this summer, so its free! We always pack a picnic lunch. As it's very expensive for popsicles--$2.50/each. I do like the bar selection though, but once again, Smuggs will get ya!

We're a Smuggs' Family. My daughters learned to ski and swim at Smugglers' Notch Resort. Last summer our family bought 360 passes which allowed us to ski with no black out dates, swim during the winter and use their waterparks during the summer. We purchased the 360 passes this year too. Great value for the dollar.

I took my two sons (ages 4 and 6) on a HOT Sunday in July. They had a BLAST!
You need to go to the guest service desk to buy your pass before heading up to the pool area. Parking is just outside the pool area and very close – which proves to be handy at the end of the day with waterlogged, tired little people.
Once in the pool area there’s ample seating and several pools. There is a small waterslide for...more

We had the best time at this waterpark. Best by far was the wonderful slide at the top of the hill, which is where we enjoyed plenty of shade and sun. For 7 years old or under, be aware of the height restriction on the main waterpark slide. That was a disappointment as at 7, kids are thinking they can enjoy that big, glorious looking slide. Snacks available but it was handy to have packed our own picnic too. A really great family day!

What a pleasant surprise! We loved the water park. My kids are 6 and 8 and it was perfect for them. The water park is clean, plenty of lifeguards making sure that only 1 person at a time is on the slide. There are several choices for food, one poolside, and the others part of the resort.
All in all, a great day and I can see this becoming an annual outing for our family!

This place is an untapped gem for locals. Within a 45 minute drive from Burlington is an outstanding waterpark for our 7&8 year old. Would also be appropriate for younger and older kids. There were pools with various water spray toys, tube slides of all sizes, a lily pad walk, water basketball & volleyball, waterfalls. Plenty of poolside chairs and tables to relax at. It was clean, both near the pool and in the restrooms. The lifeguards...more
