Swimming Pool

Thanks for Making Summer 2021 A Great Summer.

Watch for Summer 2022 Information in the Spring

A highlight of the summer for many folks is relaxing at a pool and jumping in the cool, clear water. Woodcrest is pleased to offer our pool complex to those in our community as well as are campers and guests.

There are several ways you can enjoy the pool.

Single Use, Drive-in Guests 

Because of Covid-19 guidelines, the pool is open to single use, drive-in guests on weekdays only. Guests can pay a single day admission to the pool Monday through Friday during the posted hours (download the summer schedule here).

Seasonal Pool Pass Members — We are currently out of Full Family Passes and Individual Passes

For those who plan on enjoying the pool all summer long, a season pass is a great alternative. Woodcrest offers a variety of options including a full family pass, a weekday family pass, individual pass, and senior citizen pass. Download our Seasonal Pass Application here.  Seasonal Pass holders have access to the pool during posted hours on our summer schedule.  Seasonal Pass holders also have access to the waterslide during normal operating hours on Saturday and Sunday (1:30-3:30).

Because of Covid-19 guidelines, a limited number of pool passes will be available. After those passes are gone, we will have a waiting list in case we are able to add additional passes as the summer progresses.

Campground & Lodging Guests

Because of Covid-19 guidelines, we still need to monitor the number of guests at the pool at one time. To help us maintain those numbers, our overnight guests at the campground or lodges can enjoy the pool during posted weekday hours and during special swim times on Saturdays from 12:30-3:30 and on Sundays from 1:00 – 3:30. Family members of campground or lodging guests who are not saying on site can enter the pool area upon paying the pool day use fee. When numbers and weather permit, we will offer additional hours to our overnight guests. These additional hours will be listed in your weekend bulletin and in the camp office. Campground and lodging guests can also enjoy the waterslide during regular hours on Saturday and Sunday (see your weekend bulletin).

Pavilion Guests

As you can guess, because of Covid-19 guidelines, there are special instructions for our pavilion users that are designed to keep our pool occupancy within our given number.  Based on the weekend, a limited number of Day Pool Passes will be available for our pavilion guests with set hours. Group leaders can reserve pool passes when making or confirming their reservation. On the day of their rental, guests can check in at the pool under the name of the rented pavilion. Group leaders will have instructions on payment.  The waterslide will be available for pavilion users during general slide times upon paying the posted fee. Pavilion users can also reserve the waterslide or the pool for a private party outside of normal operating hours. Group leaders should call the camp office for pool arrangements.
