Family Fun

Kids grow up so fast, so don't miss an opportunity to bond and make memories.  Lake Red Rock has several trails for hiking which offer a great opportunity to unplug from technology. 

If you have smaller children, make sure to plan time to explore the PLAYSCAPE located near the North Overlook campground and beach.  And speaking of beaches, the NORTH OVERLOOK BEACH and WHITEBREAST BEACH provide a great opportunity to make sand castles and enjoy having sand between your toes.  The PELLA AQUATICS CENTER was voted BEST PLACE TO ENTERTAIN KIDS .  It features a lazy river and zero entry area for smaller kids.  Older kids might enjoy renting a canoe or boat to explore Lake Red Rock or Roberts Creek. 

Get their motor running by visiting SLIDEWAYS, just north of Knoxville, to test your skills driving go-karts.   Little girls really enjoy making reservations to have tea at MARIA'S TEA ROOM on the north side of the Pella square at Scholte House.  In the fall, make sure to come during farm crawl to visit area farms in the southwest portion of the county for a real hands-on farm experience.
