Lazy River Fun


In the spring and summer months, The Woodlands Resort is alive with excitement centering around the Forest Oasis: Lazy River & Waterpark. Located within a vast poolside environment surrounded by three luxurious guestroom buildings, towering pines and the Panther Trail™ golf course and the lush forest, the spectacular Forest Oasis: Lazy River & Waterpark has been designed to provide a fun and refreshing experience for the entire family. Additionally enjoy a seasonally heated lagoon-style relaxation pool. Adjacent to the pool area, a signature lazy river winds through the surrounding forest.

Everyone will enjoy the Forest Oasis: Lazy River & Waterpark's most stunning feature: A 30-foot Tower outfitted with a double-helix water slide, waterfall and underwater marine mural. Kids of all ages will love racing down the slides and participating in underwater treasure hunts as they listen to the sounds of the ocean. Guests can also enjoy our 1,005 foot lazy river as it weaves through the forest canopy.  

Parents can keep an eye on little ones while lounging in the zero-grade entry pool at Puffy's Sprayground™. Themed around The Woodlands' mascot, Puffy Pine Cone, the zone features a synchronized, computer-activated water experience with waterspouts and fountains.

*Access to Forest Oasis Waterpark & Lazy River is available to guests lodging at The Woodlands Resort. At check-in, wristbands will be provided for the number of occupants registered to a room (max of 4 guests per room.) Pool wristbands are not available for day access or non-hotel guests.

At dusk, families gather around the fire pit for scrumptious build-your-own s'mores and, afterward. A host of  activities, such as crafts, live music, games and tasty treats, keep the air filled with fun and excitement.

Mere footsteps from the buzz of the recreation pool, an additional lagoon pool offers a serene atmosphere with its calming ten-foot water wall and bench seating. Conveniently located between both pool areas, the Cool Water Café provides a variety of refreshments and food to enjoy poolside at leisure.
