Kids careen off covered wagons, float on rattlesnakes and dash through showers tipped from water-filled ore carts. Mountain and slides are named for Pete the Prospector.
According to Lake Fairfax legend, he staked his claim there in , searching for gold. Sadly for Pete, his years of digging found only water. But now, with The Water Mine, the Park Authority is turning Pete's worthless old strike into the golden fun of summer. While the Water Mine's attractions are designed for elementary-aged children, there's something here for everyone.

Water Mine Family Swimmin Hole Waterpark Tickets
You Might Like Outdoors and Sports. Waterworks Waterpark. We love that the admission is good all day even if you leave and come back. We can get there in the morning, go home for naps, and head back in the late afternoon. Perfect for us since we have young toddlers. We also love that we can bring food and drinks. They do have a snack bar and a pizza wagon but we've never taken advantage of them.
There are plenty of lounge chairs and about half of them are in the umbrella shade. We spend most of the time in the water so I don't mind if we don't get a chair in the shade. There is also plenty of grass area if you rather bring camping chairs or a picnic blanket. There is also plenty of room if you are bringing a stroller.
I have been stuck in a few long lines but if you get there early in the morning of after a rest break the line usually isn't too bad. At least during the week! Weekends are usually busy all day. The admission fee is very reasonable considering the flexiblity you get. We are most definitely getting season passes next year. We've been looking for a public pool membership and the Water Mine season pass for a family of 4 will cost us HALF of any of the public pools!
If I was looking for a campground outside of DC, this is where I would come. The Water Mine is fairly cheap print out the coupon on the FX Co website and maintained by the county, which in Fairfax County means strictly following health and safety guidelines. Bathrooms are clean and the pools are nice and clean. There are lockers outside the bathroom which are handy. You will have to wait in line. I suggest getting there around am if it's a nice day.
Information & Restrictions
Once you get in the park, do not dilly dally- go right for the lounge chairs under the umbrellas. Stake out your spot and then put your valuables in the locker and then have fun. There is a small pool for the little ones with a squirter and a zero entry area to the bigger pool with an umbrella feature spraying water.
Can't comment on the food- we have always brought a picnic which saves some cash.
