HERO Watersports Weekends #1-#3 Scheduled

We are so happy to announce that the HERO Watersports Weekends have been scheduled for Saturday, June 28, July 26, and August 23 from 9:00am-5:00pm.  For only $20 you can get a lesson/set on the cable system and unlimited kayaking, paddleboarding, and of course swimming!  This event is a fundraiser for the HERO group which works with various youth groups of Central Ohio to provide kids with an opportunity to participate and learn about outdoor recreation.  They are always looking for volunteers and sponsors.  Please visit their website for all of the information or to pre-register for any specific activity or just to secure your spot.  We will only be selling about 150-200 passes so please act fast!  http://www.herousa.org/Events/UpcomingEvents/2014/WaterSportsWeekend.aspx

 

Camping Packages Now Available

Due to popular demand we are happy to offer camping as an option for any private reservation here at Wakeopolis!  We can accommodate up to 100 guests for overnight camping at our facility.  Packages can include the cable system or can just be priced for the lake and camping access without use of the cable system.  We do not have hookups (power or otherwise) for each campsite but we do have power readily available for use.  For groups who like to fish we can also offer fishing at our lake for those great sunset/sunrise fishing sessions.  Please email info@wakeopolis.com if you have any questions or are interested in a quote!

Wakeopolis Partners With Project 908

We are so happy to announce that Wakeopolis has partnered with Project 908 to provide our SUP classes this summer!  They will be offering intro to paddle classes along with paddle board yoga – imagine paddling out to the well-protected west end of the lake on a calm morning for some relaxing outdoor yoga!  SUP is a great workout and a fun challenge in the sun, if you don’t try it this summer you will be one year older when you do.

You must reserve your spot through their website, so please check out www.project908.com.

New For 2014!

We are really pumped for summer this year, as Wakeopolis will be adding a full slate of outdoor fitness options in addition to our awesome wakeboard cable setup and clean clear swimming lake.  We plan to offer on-the-water bootcamp workouts on Saturday and Sunday mornings along with stand up paddle (SUP) board classes and paddle board yoga!  We will also be working with triathlete training groups, specifically those looking to improve on their open water swim times.  Opening Weekend is May 3-4 from Noon-5:00!!

Closed for 2013 Season :(

We are unfortunately closing early for the 2013 season… while we hoped to ride until at least mid-October, our cable began fraying a week ago and it will take us several weeks to replace the main cable.  We will be back up and running by May 2014 when we plan to officially start the season by the first weekend of May.  Please stay in touch with us by signing up for the mailing list (on the home page) and keeping up with us on Facebook.  Thank you so much for a great summer and we look forward to more new friends, more great events, and more wakeboarding next year!

Late Season Private Party Sale!

Starting September 16th and running for the rest of the 2013 season, private parties are 50% off the normal price and equipment rentals are free!  Diehard riders and those with wetsuits can still ride the cable through the fall.  For everyone else, BBQing, fishing, lawn games, and camping are all available for some fall weather fun!  Great for family reunions, 4-H and outdoor club meetings/campouts, or just a fun day outside with your friends and family!
