"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

I am a season pass holder to both Dollywood and Splash Country. I have been purchasing season passes since my now 15 year old son was very small. I likely have spent close to 10 grand in all at these two parks over the past decade. My experience, until yesterday, has always been a good one for me and my family. Unfortunately, I had an experience yesterday with a member of the management team at Splash country that was beyond disappointing. It ruined the day for me and my family after we had been enjoying a wonderful first few hours. I had skin cancer in 2004 and have to be very careful in the sun. I definitely take great precautions with sun screen but I also need to be shaded as much as possible as well. For this reason, I purchased a portable umbrella that connects into a tripod special for this trip. Having been to Splash Country before, I knew that shade was limited unless you pay extra for their 'retreats' and shaded loungers. There are some free shaded areas but they fill up fast on a hot summer day. On the way in, I was asked by park personnel what the item was I was carrying it. I told him it was an umbrella and there was no problem. I set the umbrella up between two lounge chairs near the wave pool and we enjoyed several hours of fun. But in the afternoon, I was approached by a staff member in a yellow shirt. He was immediately very rude and condescending to me. He told me I would have to take my umbrella down because it was against park policy to bring your own. I was confused as I looked around and saw so many umbrellas almost identical to mine shading park employees as they worked. My friend spoke up and advised the man of my history with skin cancer and told him how important it was for me to have shade. His very rude response was, "It doesn't matter, you have to take it down". My friend asked to speak to a manger and he said he was a manager and there was no one else we could talk to. He walked off. I did not take the umbrella down immediately as I was waiting for him to return so I could ask him to show me the park policy where I could not bring an umbrella. When he returned about 5 minutes later he was obviously angry that I had not obeyed his order and his tone became very hostile. He started calling in other managers on his radio. I felt threatened at that point and was in utter disbelief that this was happening over an umbrella I had brought to the park to protect my skin. He very loudly told me I better take the umbrella down NOW or he would have me and the umbrella removed from the park. I took the umbrella down and got his name so I can report him and am in the process of doing this now. As he was handing the information I needed to report him he said, 'Good Luck with that' and walked off. I was told by another park employee that he is the director of operations for the park. I was beside myself. We had spent hundreds of dollars that day alone in that park only to be treated with such disrespect by someone with a position pretty high up on the ladder. For the sake of my family and friends I had brought to the park, we stayed and I tried to make the rest of the day as enjoyable as possible but our day was basically ruined. Update: My formal complaint to Dollywood corporate was filed on August 5th and I have never received a call, letter, or any type of response from them. The only response they have given was they put a personal umbrella policy on the Splash Country web page. Considering the money I've spent in those parks and other Dolly owned attractions over the years, this is beyond disappointing. Sadly, this will be my last year doing business with any Dollywood Corporate affiliates.

The day we went was crazy busy and I stood in line for a hot dog for over 45 minutes in the heat. We got there at lunch time and were already hungry, so waiting that long for a hot dog and fries was not great. (overall not a huge selection of food). I think our time would have been much more enjoyable had we packed a lunch. But that isn't allowed so EVERYONE has to stand in the same few lines to eat. Total bummer. And the water was super cold. If I ever go back to the area, I will skip this. Lots of potential, but they need some changes.

Dollywood Splash park was nice but not the best I've ever been too. The lazy river was over crowded and everyone kept bumping into people. I do like the fact that you can refill your water bottle and free water stations with cups. You also have to bring your own towels so read all the rules first because I missed that one.

This water park has lots to do wether your 2 to 102! Many water slides and splash pools. Family rides and a water coaster. Prices range from $49.95 for adults to $44.95 for children. They also give a military discount. They also have a H20 time saver that allows you to not wait in long lines. Prices range depending on how many rides you don't want to wait in line for. From $54.95 to $22.95. Places to eat like dip n dots to hamburgers, pizza. Chicken tenders, chili cheese fries, hot dogs and more!!! We had a great time and I know we'll go back. Dollywood is right next to the water park, so a family could spend a weekend going to both parks. Parking is $15. That's the only thing we didn't like. A little steep just to park your car for the day.
