I'm not gonna lie, I am a beach girl!  I could spend all summer just lying on the sand and listening to the waves.  Of course, I live in land-locked Oklahoma and the closest thing I have is my 4x16 above ground pool.  Not even close!

Just a short drive down 1-44, you'll find something at least comparable, Castaway Cove! They are preparing for another great season with their opening date of May 15, 2021 for weekend operations.

“Preparing to open is always an exciting time for our park team,” said Castaway Cove Park Manager Steve Vaughn. “You can feel the energy build as we work towards opening the gates to families in the area. We can’t wait to see everyone back here at Castaway Cove soon.”
