This is a very dangerous water park that had to eventually hire lifeguards to keep the kids safe. The lake is very deep. There have been numerous accidents and even deaths at this water park. This park is ureasonably expensive. Swim at your own risk.

Think this is a great place for anyone that can swim. I would definitely look elsewhere if you have very little ones or weak swimmers. With the crowds, and the fact that the deep parts are not actually shut off, I imagine a little one...More

Went for the first time in 20 years. They let way too many people in on Saturdays. You have to get in line outside the gates an hour before opening to get a spot on the sand. So crowded...to the point of being dangerous. Every...More

Beaver Dam is one of the treasures of Baltimore County. It's best visited on a weekday when the crowds aren't too heavy, but really it is large enough to accommodate a lot people. Parents of young children will want to wait til the kids are...More

I heard that much of the quarry is closed off and that you can not jump off the cliffs anymore but no where do they mention this on their website

One side of the quarry is closed off. But there is definitely enough room on the other side; there is the rope swing and cliff diving in one area.
