This place is incredible. Not overly crowded.very clean. Friendly staff. Attentive life guards. Mix of activities for kids from babies through high school. The shallowness of the pool is the best part. It is ideal for cautious toddlers learning to swim. Would absolutely recommend this place.

My daughter loves the pools, slides and lazy river and we will be back. I think they changed who runs the concession stand this year and we will never order food and drinks there again. The line is long and slow. The selection is terrible and the prices are high.

I love this pool. It is a great local pool that has four slides, two diving boards, volley ball court, splash park and so much more. It has plenty of sun chairs and choices for sun and shade. Which ever you would like. Also the lazy river is great for just relaxing and they even have inner tubes that has... More

I took my granddaughters to Otter Cove Water Park on a beautiful, sunny day. Although we thought it a bit pricey for non-residents (and my husband did not join us because, although he wasn't planning on using any of the facilities, he would have had to pay the full admission price), it seemed to be worth it. The girls had... More

We drive from Rochester to go swimming here with the granddaughter and it is an AWESOME pool for adults as children, a small water park and very clean. Great sun for sun goddess's AND LOTS OF FUN FOR KIDS! Beautiful area for site seeing!

Otter Cover is more like a small water park than a pool. It has a deep pool with swimming lanes and a slide that shoots you out into the deep pool. A toddler pool with all kinds of fun things shooting and dumping water. A shallow pool that has a frog slide for young children and several things that shoot... More

I have now been to Otter cove three times and each time I came optimistic and left thinking "I wish (insert pool segment here) would have been open. Each time I have visited, at least one major pool has been closed for 1+ hour due to a "code brown", or "code green pea soup". I understand those situations are not... More

Otter Cove is a relatively new swimming facility on the west side of St. Charles. It has everything one could want, and the kids love it. My only quibble is that it is rather expensive to take a family for a one day outing, especially if you are not a resident.

Fun water park. Pools and things to do for all ages. Lifeguards to a great job. Only negative is the restroom/locker rooms are always dirty.

If you don't want to spend the time or the money but want something BIG and fun, this is the place to go. Its in the area and has a lazy river, water slides, many pool options, lots of covered space. Also, it allows coolers. Pack your lunch and head out to Otter Cover for family fun day!!!
