The slides here at Gator Grounds are an amenity open to campers, specified camp site visitors, and golf course members. The height requirement is 42″ or manager approval (which must be gained after checking in and before use of the slides).
All three of our slides are monitored by our Gator Grounds staff in order to be sure that there are no accidents caused by multiple people on the same slide at once. One slide exits into one of our pools while the other two exit into their own separate slide-end areas.
