Summer fun awaits you at Lake Hemet where the new Splashing Eagle Waterpark offers families a way to cool down during these hot Inland Empire summer days.
Lake Hemet is located in the San Jacinto Mountains, a water storage reservoir that is part of the Santa Ana River Watershed. The lake provides visitors with the opportunity to spend time relaxing, fishing, camping, hiking, bird watching, kayaking, and, of course, swimming.
Lake Hemet Swim Cove has a designated beach area for swimming and wading. A new inflatable swim park, Splashing Eagle Waterpark, has been added in the past few years with large inflatables like climbing walls, slides, a trampoline, and a teeter totter. These floating structures provide a unique way to beat the summer heat and enjoy a day out on the lake.
The swim cove is suitable for all ages with a shallower section for the kid’s splash zone and a deeper area for older kids and adults. The beach is supervised by lifeguards; life vests are required to be worn on the floating inflatable course.
Swimming at the beach is $10 and entrance to the waterpark is $15. Children must be 48” inches in height for the waterpark, but the swim beach has no height restriction.
Splashing Eagle Waterpark is open five days a week for the summer, from Memorial Day through Labor Day, 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The park is closed on Tuesday and Wednesday, although it will be open for the 2018 4th of July holiday.
