Splash Kingdom

The Splash Kingdom is arguably the most popular attraction in Canton, TX, during the summer months primarily because of the park’s seemingly neverending water activities. With over a dozen lightning-fast slides, mat racers, a surf simulator, a lazy river, and a 350,000-gallon wave pool, you’ll have no problem entertaining the kids this summer! Cabana rentals, tasty pizza, ice cream, juicy burgers, and so much more are available for purchase when you’re not soaking, splashing, and sliding inside this ever-popular summer park.

Not only is this quiet, beautiful country club less than two miles from our Canton, TX, lodging, but their pace of play and low rates simply cannot be outdone.

After 18 holes, remember to grab lunch or dinner at The Bunker – their chicken fried steak, buffalo shrimp, and shrimp po’ boy are delicious.
