A couple of weeks ago we loaded up the van and drove 2.5 hours up to Storm Lake to enjoy our first vacation as a family of four at King’s Pointe Waterpark Resort.
This was our second time staying at the resort and again it did not disappoint.
We pulled into Storm Lake around 11:00 am and quickly and easily checked into our room. We stayed in a double queen suite on the third floor. Our room had a balcony that overlooked the lake. It was truly beautiful! The queen suite was perfect for our family as we have a one-year-old who goes to sleep around 7:00 pm, so we could put him down in the bedroom and hang out on the balcony or watch tv in the living room without worrying about waking him up.
After we got settled in our room we headed down the Regatta Grill where we enjoyed a nice lunch overlooking the lake. After lunch it
was time for the main event…swimming!!! Despite being a chilly day (I think the high was 60 degrees that day) we decided to brave the outdoor waterpark. To my surprise the water was super warm! It actually felt better in the water than out. We swam outside for about thirty minutes but soon the sky filled with clouds and our littlest swimmer started shivering so we decided to head inside to the indoor waterpark.
I can’t say enough great things about the indoor waterpark! It has 3 big slides, a great area for little kids and it’s very own lazy river. We had the best time!
We took a break in the middle of the afternoon to drive around Storm Lake and explore. We stopped at the bakery downtown and grabbed some afternoon snacks to fuel up for round 2 of swimming.
We spent the rest of the afternoon bouncing back and forth between the indoor and outdoor waterpark. After we had our fill of swimming we enjoyed a pizza picnic on the lawn of the resort overlooking the lake. We spent the rest of the evening exploring the resort and walking around the lake.
After a good nights sleep by all, we started our morning off with the breakfast buffet at the Regatta Grill. We thought we better squeeze in one last swim before we had to leave so after breakfast we headed down to the indoor waterpark (it was another cool and rainy day) where we had to literally drag our kids kicking and screaming when it was time to go home!
We had the best time at King’s Pointe! They helped make our first vacation as a family of four a memorable success. We hope to make this trip an annual event and are already excited to go back next year!
