Southern Rhode Island's best skiing and tubing.

We took the kids and their teenage friends for tubing at Yawgoo. Even though we had no snow on the ground at home, they had made snow in the tubing park. One downside was that... read more

The snow tubing is so much fun! I have been with just children and I have gone on a weekend night with friends. It is not only reasonable it is something different to do with the kids. You even get pulled back up the slope if you don't want to walk up.They provide the tubes and give a brief overview... More

Our group included senior citizens and teenagers so we were pleasantly surprised to see patrons of all ages enjoying snow tubing at this venue. It was our first time here and we weren't sure what to expect. No problem...the place is extremely organized and well run allowing you to have the maximum amount of fun in your fifty minute session... More

Yawgoo Valley is *the* place in southern Rhode Island to learn to ride a snowboard or learn to ski. There's so much challenge at Yawgoo. Driving up North for hours is a dubious proposition. The challenge is at Yawgoo...

BEWARE AND CAUTION. Lax, careless staff fails to properly watch pool area right below slide where a kid sliding down could easily slam into swimmers who should be exiting right away. Asked if staff and lifeguard could find our child because he hadn't come down the slide for a long time; staff replied with "Go find him yourself because we... More

We took the kids and their teenage friends for tubing at Yawgoo. Even though we had no snow on the ground at home, they had made snow in the tubing park. One downside was that they only had one "lift" available which cut down the number of runs the kids could do. Otherwise they had a great time. It is... More

Yawgoo is a great choice for those Rhode Islanders who don't feel like driving hours to go skiing, it's small but a ton of fun

Looking for a little bit of water fun away from the mega water parks, our family visited Yawgoo Valley water-park on Labor Day weekend. Set in a residential area of Exeter, it consists of a few small buildings leading to a pool and two waterslide tubes on a hillside. With rates by the hour starting on the hour, we paid... More

I used to live here in the Yawgoo Valley apartments, a long time ago....the skiing attraction drew many and was busy during the winter months.

This small water park is clean and the staff were lovely. Main building restrooms were clean and outdoor bar had good selection of snacks. Our first visit was good but we could have only stayed for 2 hours and been satisfied. Not going to recommend for toddlers. Good for school age kids and tweens. Will return for tubing in winter.

Rhode Island's only ski "mountain". A family-friendly environment. Offers 4 seasons of fun. I'm not a skier, but I enjoy myself every time I visit.
