"Campsite Grill, short staffed."
July 2019
We went to DollyWood Splash Country On Friday July 13, 2018 at 10:00 in the morning.
My son loves water park at , Dollywood splash country.
Most of the lines, was about a 45 minutes to an hour wait.
After riding two water rides and waiting about 2 hours to ride the water rides.
My son and I was very hungry and wanted to sit down and eat before we leave since the park closes at 7pm.
We decided to have lunch at , Dollywood splash Country Campsite Grill.
The campsite Grill, was very short staffed our cashier was Olivia.
We was in line from 1:52 until 3:23, waiting to get something to eat.
The line didn't, move for over an hour every line at Campsite Grill was very slow.
I hope the next time, we go back to Dollywood Splash Country Campsite grill we don't wait for almost 2 hours for a small pepperoni pizza with only 4 pepperoni at $7.99 and 2 cheese sticks for $4.99 plus tax.

"I'm a waterpark junkie"
November 2015
I love a good water park with a wide variety of slides, as well as a place to cool your heels and get some sun. My kids, my wife, and I all wore ourselves out trying to do as much as possible. The big slide that was a straight drop takes your breath away and is great for the adrenaline junky, bungie jump kind of person in your family. I was impressed with the cleanliness of the park, the ease of access and everything in it. I will be going again

Tip: Get a good pair of swim shoes to wear so you won't kill your feet trying to walk around barefoot. They sell them there at a reasonable price

This is a great water park. The country theming is superbly done. There are plenty of slides and an exhilarating water coaster. The wave pool and lazy river are fun ways to relax without having to be on your feet. The food lines were outrageously long. That, I would say, was the worst part of the day. It's as if they were not prepared to handle the number of people in the park. We traveled in mid- August, so perhaps that was a time when their season was coming to a close and they didn't have a full staff on hand. Compared to Disney Parks prices, this was an EXCELLENT value for a family friendly day. I want to go back to Pigeon Forge just to visit Dollywood and Splash Country. There is a $13 parking fee, so be prepared to pay that. I highly recommend a visit to Splash Country if you are in Pigeon Forge during hot weather months.

"Ok Waterpark"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed March 17, 2020
We went for our first time last summer. It's an ok water park however, do not bring arm floaties for your kids, they must wear their life vests. They are old and uncomfortable but that's their policy. The bathrooms are nasty and teenagers (girls) and adult women ( who should know better) are permitted to walk around in G string bikinis and that is really a tad much for most of us. The little kids really don't need to see that crap and it was gross. We may go back but if the bathrooms are not cleaner and they do not enforce some sort of decency dress code, we will leave. I'm no prude but some people just should NOT wear certain things. Just because it's made in their size does not mean they need to wear it. The food on site is WAY too expensive. be prepared to get a loan before you buy a simple meal for three people. The food was NOT good either. Typical nasty park food. The staff are all really young people so you really need to watch your own kids and stay alert. It's very crowded and the lifeguards are not paying attention most the time. Lines for most of the slides are really long so go early and plan to stay late if you want to do it all.

"BRING WATER SHOES"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed March 05, 2020
We read some of the reviews but didn't fully learn from them. Whatever you do, bring water shoes/flip flops/chacos/etc. During the summer, waiting in line, things will get hot!!! We thought we were doing good, until we exited a ride down a long path and burn our feet. It was terrible. The ground get's hot and not everything is sprayed with water. Overall our family enjoyed Splash Country but wish we would have listened and worn sandals the entire time. (Wait times do get long, we did NOT pay extra to jump in line to the front but found it to be manageable to just wait and not spend the extra money) Get there early, wait times increased as the day went on, as did the temperature of the walkways.
