Wake Nation is a new type of water park (one of only a handful in the entire U.S.) that lets you wakeboard, water ski, and kneeboard WITHOUT the use of a boat. The entire park is designed to provide the ultimate ride experience to both first timers and experienced riders. It’s great for anyone age 5 or older. Just bring your bathing suit as they’ve got everything else you need. The Wake Nation season runs from May through October.

Mark, you are correct. Our August hours are W-Sun, 11am to 6pm for the Aqua Park, and 1pm to 8pm for cable activities. We did open about an hour late for the Aqua Park a few days ago. We had about 500 people onsite until...More

I took my 9 year grandson there for the day. He is a good wake-boarder from Minnesota. They walked him through the ropes and gave him one-on-one instruction time until he was comfortable with the cable pull, different than a boat pull. This is a...More

Their website shows photos and videos of their so-called "water park" that has a trampoline and inflatables on a lake. These photos and video are totally fraudulent. They were taken at some other place. Wake Nation dug a hole in the ground, put some water...More
