Swimming Pool

The Woodcrest Pool will not be open Friday or Saturday, September 2-3. The Pool is open to Full Week Pool Pass holders on Sunday (9/4) from 3:30-6:30 and all pool pass holders on Monday (9/5) from 12:30-3:30.  We regret the necessary changes from our original schedule. The Pool will be open to drive in guests on Monday (9/5) from 12:30-3:30 for a special price of $5 which includes the use of the waterslide. Guests must report to the pool booth before going to the slide.   

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 

Woodcrest’s 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).  We are unable to accommodate drive in guests on the weekend because of the high volume of guests that we serve on the weekends. Please note the drive-in guests may be turned away if pool is at or near capacity.

Seasonal Pool Pass Members

For those who plan on enjoying the pool all summer long, a season pass is a great deal. 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).

A limited number of pool passes will be available in each category.

Campground & Lodging Guests

To keep the pool enjoyable for all, we strive to manage the number of guests at the pool facility at a given time.  One way that we accomplish this is provide a special time for our overnight guests at the campground or lodges to enjoy the pool 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 single use fee when accompanied by the Woodcrest guest. 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 for a complete schedule).

Pavilion Guests

To help maintain a comfortable and enjoyable experience for all of our guests, we do limit the number of swimmers during the various hours of the pool hours.  There is a limited number of Day Pool Passes available for our pavilion guests. Group leaders can reserve pool passes when making or confirming their reservation. Group leaders will have instructions on the use of pool bands and payment.  The waterslide will be available for pavilion users during general slide times for a nominal 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 and details. All reservations must be made two weeks prior to your scheduled event.

Woodcrest Pool Parties

We have Christian music playing, special snacks at the snack bar, and fun games throughout the evening. The cost is $4.00 a person. These events are not included in a regular season pass application.
