Summer is almost here and although Michigan is surrounded by the great lakes and tons of other amazing places to dip in the water, the mitten state also offers some amazing water parks to enjoy all year long!

Every summer millions of people flood the great lakes to enjoy some good ole fun in the sun, but since Michigan really only has a couple months of great Summer weather I figured I'd put a list together of the Top 3 Northern Michigan water parks to enjoy all year long! Lets kick it off with a Northern Michigan great...

3. Double JJ Resort - Rothbury, MI

The Double JJ Resort is not only great for the kids, but also offers golfing, a great ranch (hence the name "Double JJ Ranch") and oh yeah an amazing water park!


2. Great Wolf Lodge - Traverse City, Michigan

The Great Wolf Lodge not only has a great water park, but tons of great activities and an arcade for the kids! Oh and their hotels are amazing and offer bunk beds for the kids.

1. Avalanche Bay - Boyne Falls Michigan 

Located on the Boyne Mountain Resort, this Michigan water park is the perfect getaway to take the family no matter what the weather is outside. It's also the largest indoor water park hotel in Michigan!
