Outdoor and Indoor Pools
Ocean Lakes Family Campground has several beautiful pools, including our new water park amenities at Sandy Harbor (see Pool Rules for height/weight safety info). A large sun deck that includes reclining chairs for sunbathing and several kiddie pools and our interactive wading pool Sandy Harbor Splash Zone. The pool deck is surrounded by landscaping and is part of the Sandy Harbor Family Fun Center with restrooms and changing areas. Enjoy a meal or snack at Sandy Harbor Cafe adjacent to the pools and Sandy Harbor Mini-Golf. Certified lifeguards are on duty during the summer season. Ocean Lakes takes great care with its pools, which are serviced daily. The “All-Seasons” indoor pool is open year ’round and is heated in the winter time. Water aerobics have become very popular throughout the year with guests of all ages.
Sandy Harbor Outdoor Pool Hours
Many are curious about Sandy Harbor’s “season,” as similar facilities generally close at Labor Day (read our blog about our pool operations and see below for our 2017 pool hours). Being a new type of aquatics operations for our campground, we appreciate everyone’s patience as we discovered what worked best for our operational needs and requirements. Our plan is to have Sandy Harbor fully operational Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day. After that we will scale back to more of an “hours as posted” operation. That may include shutting off the slides on the Drop Zone, The Tube and Splash Zone during the week while leaving the other parts of Sandy Harbor open for guests. Kids can still play on Splash Zone even if those smaller slides are shut down/closed off. We would like to open the slides on the weekends. Generally, all the outdoor pools close in October when it gets too chilly to swim. The indoor pool is open every day. (See hours below.)
Generally, Ocean Lakes’ outdoor pools have always opened for swimming at Easter. The new Sandy Harbor water park style amenities will probably be open Easter Weekend, then close until May. In May, it will be open on weekends with “hours as posted” until Memorial Day Weekend. That may include shutting off the slides on the Drop Zone, The Tube and Splash Zone while leaving the other parts of Sandy Harbor open for guests. We appreciate everyone’s patience as we find what works best for our operational needs.

Sandy Harbor Water Park Hours for 2017
With a season of operating Sandy Harbor under our belt, we’re already preparing for next year. Here’s a guide for when the water park will open and close in 2017:
Easter | Our water park will be open for the big Easter crowds April 14 through April 16, then will shut down until May.
*May | Starting May 1, the water park will be open on the weekends only with “hours as posted.”
Summer | Our water park will open full time Memorial Day Weekend and continue through Labor Day.
*Fall 2017 | Our water park will stay open under “hours as posted” through Sept. 30.
*NOTE: In May, it will be open on weekends with “hours as posted” until Memorial Day Weekend. After Labor Day, SHWP will operate similar to May hours. What does that mean? Opening the Water Park may include shutting off the slides on the Drop Zone, The Tube and Splash Zone while leaving the other parts of Sandy Harbor (Adventure River and Splash Zone structure) open for guests. Please understand, we think of the Water Park as all the elements, not the slides. We appreciate everyone’s patience as our team works hard to provide this amenity for your enjoyment.
