What is there to do?

There's gold in dem hills, as well as 60,000 sq ft of indoor waterpark fun at Double JJ Ranch!

The Gold Rush Indoor Waterpark is pure water excitement for the whole family. They offer day passes so you can just come and go whenever you please!

Want to know another great reason that you should visit? It's home to Western Michigan's TALLEST indoor waterslide! How cool is that?

For those brave waterpark fans in the family, there are thrill slides to enjoy, including Miner's Plunge, the fun two person slide that drops you into a cannon bowl as you spin around to the kiddie pool below. 

Want to enjoy the water with more friends? Check out Thunder Canyon, the fun white-water raft ride for the entire family, with quick acceleration, steep drops and splashes galore!

And then the tallest indoor waterslide in Western Michigan? That has to be Rustler's Gulch! This speedy body slide has light and dark areas, steep acceleration and a very splashy finish!

Of course, if you want something a little more relaxed, Double JJ Ranch has you covered too. There is a fun wave pool that takes you in and out of the Lazy and Crazy River, and the Golden Pond is where those sports fans will be in their element. Basketball, volleyball and a balance walk can all be found in this activity pool. 

Got little ones in the family? There is a fun Toddler Pool with lots of interactive cranks to turn, ropes to turn, handles to twist and yes, water to play with!

After all, 60,000 sq ft is a lot of space to fill, and Double JJ Ranch have done just that!

Also at the resort, you can explore miles of scenic horseback trails, perfect for riders of any skill level and age, or check out the Arthur Hills designed Thoroughbred Golf Course. 

Lots of family fun on this Michigan family day out! How big a splash will YOU make?

I’m Hungry!

No outside food or beverage will be allowed in the water park. This is not to be confused with food that is sold on the lobby level of the water park. You may certainly order food from Rustler’s Roost (for example) and take it down into the water park to enjoy it. - Fun things to do with kids and best places to visit in the US
