A five-minute drive from Lake Geneva, the family-friendly Timber Ridge Lodge & Waterpark is packed with activities. The all-suite layout fits families in one or two bedrooms plus a separate sitting room and sofa bed. All suites have a balcony and a fireplace, bathrooms with a large whirlpool tub and fully equipped kitchens. If you don’t feel like cooking, there are eight dining options on-site or next door at the Grand Geneva resort. 

The hotel’s main draw is the 50,000-square-foot water park, which is open only to hotel guests, so the pools rarely get crowded. The water park has two waterslides, a toddler pool, a lazy river and lifeguards on duty at all times. The outdoor pools are open seasonally between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Other onsite entertainment options include a full arcade, an adventure center with archery, sand volleyball and disc golf as well as horseback riding. The resort also has an 18-hole mini-golf course exclusively for resort guests (additional fees for these activities do apply).

Everything was so convenient and under one roof.

The rooms are spectacular, the service is amazing, the activities they have planned all day for the kids is great, and of course the arcade and water park was a big hit. All around win for this trip!

The lifeguards were extremely attentive which we appreciated. The young man working in the arcade was kind and gracious to the kids and treated them respectfully. Same with the staff member working in the poolside food area. I loved the outdoor pool the most and the slide out there was a great size without being too overwhelming. My kids adored the lazy river (I wish it had been a little deeper for ease of floating with the kids but it is safer for the small children to have it shallow.) We utilized the balcony on our room everyday and loved the large jet tub in the bathroom. A really nice experience.

We've been going to this resort for over 5 years now. It's always a good time for our kids and offers lot so kid activities outside of the waterpark itself.
Other Comments
The bathrooms/locker rooms and showers outside of the waterpark could probably use a renovation. At least on the women's side there needs to be better thought into layout and access for toiletries, hooks etc. but having a locker and shower there is great if you've already check out or are going for day.
