Baylor Beach Park Navarre
Where are we going today?
Baylor Beach Park is nature's own waterpark! This two acre water park has a host of great water fun, and perfect to cool off during those summer days!
The swimming lake itself has a gradually sloping sand bottom, and is surrounded by beautifully maintained sandy beaches and grassy areas, so why wouldn't it be the perfect place to spend the day with the family!
"What could a lake really offer" we hear you ask. Well, how about some diving boards for those low or high adventures. Maybe you want to see if you can be the one to stay on the log roll the longest?
Perhaps those who are feeling brave will take on the 90ft tube of terror slide! For those little ones, there are also kiddie slides too, so they can have their own age appropriate thrills.
There is even a one acre water rides lake! Fancy a go at paddleboating? Be our guest! Did you think there would be THAT much water fun on offer at Baylor Beach Park?
That's not all though - naturally! If you want to cool off, there are a host of land adventures waiting for you. From basketball, to cornhole, playgrounds for those active kids, and sand volleyball, there are plenty of ways for kids to use up all of that energy.
Don't forget about the mini golf too! Mini golf is such a great sport to enjoy with the family. You can compete against each other, or even just try and better yourself!
Did we mention that there is camping and picnicking at Baylor Beach Park too? Nature really does know how to have a great family day out!

Better than Clay's Park for smaller kids because you don't need a life jacket. The entire place (excepting a small diving area) is 5' or under. Pretty cheap too.
It's in good condition, the water isn't gross, the gravel/sand is like free exfoliation for your feet (seriously, bring sandals/water shoes if you're going to be chasing and carrying kids all day).
Overall just a nicer experience than Clay's Park. Would definitely go back.

The owners of Baylor Beach Park made disabled guest sit outside gate in the heat in their car. We arrived after 5pm to take our kids for a swim (ages 4, 7 and 9). The cost was going to be $30 for about an hour! I explained that I am disabled and just wanted to watch, but they got angry and said I could not. We begged and pleaded with the lady, (she said she was one of the owners), to allow me to watch without paying for swimming, but she went into a tirade about how this was their livelihood and how hard she works. She made me sit outside...Read More

Great place for family vacation. A beautiful place to unwind.

Previous reviewer must have been a disgruntled employee. We have been coming to Baylor beach for over ten years and have never had any problems. Owners are very friendly and helpful. They insist you follow the rules.
Very nice to bring little ones.

We begged and pleaded with the lady, (she said she was one of the owners), to allow me to watch without paying for swimming, but she went into a tirade about how this was their livelihood and how hard she works. She made me sit outside the gate in the 100 degree car. In addition, our boy just turned 4, but no leniency was given to us... full day adult rate for him, too! She even ran out into the "temporary parking area" to scream, he's not 3, no way he's 3 years old. We were treated so badly we searched to see if this has happened to other guests, but what we found was much worse. Many families ended up infected with very dangerous bacteria after swimming at Baylor Beach Park. One of the things the owner suggested (yelled) was why don't we try going to Clay's Park or somewhere else. Well, a properly maintained pool would certainly give us some peace of mind when it comes to the children's safety... AND... Tuscora Park Pool is only $2 and they allow guests not swimming free admission. Commons Pool in Bolivar is $4 and they also don't charge if you're not swimming. So, go somewhere else, the kids will have just as much fun, they will be safer and you'll save enough money to take them to dinner, too!
