Lined by sandy beaches, the crystalline, spring-fed waters of Tucker Lake provide a perfect place to enjoy sunshine-dappled days. Numerous activities are available on and off the water for visitors of all ages. A 167-foot water slide beckons them to take a thrilling, twisting ride, while a playground provides terrestrial fun. Rope swings send daring acrobats flying out into the lake, where kayaks, paddleboats, and hopelessly lost glaciers glide across the surface. When guests are ready to take a break, four acres of shaded picnic grounds complete with grills and tables provide a cool oasis. To ensure that lake-goers stay safe during their visit, lifeguards remain on duty at all times.
Hexagon Wake Park
You slide into the starting position, gripping the rope. For a moment, your eyes wander, surveying the white sand beaches and clear waters that surround you. High on a mast above, a cable carrier hooks the other end of your rope—with a tug, you launch into the water. Without the hum of a boat's outboard motor, you're free to concentrate on the sound of your wakeboard cutting the water's surface as you prepare to lift out of the rippling waves and off the first jump.
This is the introduction wake-boarders and wake-skaters at Hexagon Wake Park receive when they set out on the flexible cable that winds through the Tucker Lake obstacle course at high speeds. In this controlled environment, instructors help riders of all ages master the particulars of extreme water sports, such as how to stand and when to give ducks the right of way. Beside the cable park, other visitors explore the open water aboard stand-up paddleboats and kayaks. Visitors can also explore beachside attractions such as water slides, rope swings, and inflatable climbing structures.
