Smugglers' Summer Family Day Planner

For Smuggs Family Adventures. Our Suggestions — Your Choice!

Spending time together is easy here, because at Smugglers' your family comes first. Relax and play, share new experiences... whether it's for the day or your entire vacation.

The Village Recreation Area, open daily 8:00 am - dusk, located adjacent to the main parking lot, offers a sand volleyball court, basketball court, shuffleboard, and horseshoes. Volleyballs and basketballs are available in the box next to Teen Alley.

At Bootleggers' Basin reservoir you'll find shade tents, picnic tables and restrooms for family comfort. Your family can make a day of play with field games like kickball, soccer, and volleyball, enjoy swimming or paddleboarding in the cool water, and relaxing on the grassy lawn in this beautiful location with mountain views. Don't miss our exciting new water sport, Flyboarding, where a boot-mounted water jet pack allows you to leap and dive in flight. Bootleggers' Basin swim area is available Thursday-Monday, 11:00 am - 4:00 pm, weather permitting.

"The Family Feud/Jeopardy program on Monday night was very much as highlight as we once again enjoyed a night filled with laughter, entertainment and fellowhsip." — Joseph from Fairbury, IL, Summer 2018 Guest.

Our family STEAM activities and challenges encourage tinkering, experimenting, building, observing, exploring, and creating. Try one or try them all!
