Half Off Season Pool Passes

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.

Ways you can enjoy the pool

Single Use, Drive-in Guests

Woodcrest’s pool is open to single use, drive-in guests Sunday afternoons from 4:00 through Friday evenings.  Guests can pay a single day admission to the pool during the posted hours. We are unable to accommodate drive in guests on Saturday and Sundays 12:30-4:00 because of the high volume of guests that we serve during those times. Please note that drive-in guests may be turned away if pool is at or near capacity.

Mid Summer Sale:  There are 10 remaining season pool passes that we are offering at 50% off.

For those who plan on enjoying the pool all summer long, a season pass is a great bargain. Woodcrest offers seasonal passes for families and senior citizens, as well as individuals. Seasonal Pass holders have access to the pool during posted hours on our summer schedule (generally Sunday afternoons at 4:00 through Friday evening).. Seasonal Pass holders also have access to the waterslide during normal operating hours on Saturday and Sunday (1:30-3:30). View our summer pool calendar.

Campground & Lodging Guests

We have expanded our pool hours for all of summer lodging and campground guests. If you are staying on site or in one of our cabins, you have access to the pool Saturdays 12:30-6:30 as well as Sundays from 12:30-3:30. 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. 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 that the pool is open.  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 receive instructions on the use of pool 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 at least two weeks prior to your scheduled event. Because of the limited number of pavilion passes available, we advise reserving early.

Private Pool Parties

Looking for a great party for your family, church, or business? A Woodcrest Pool party is the perfect event that everyone will enjoy. Please call the office to check for availability.
