Opened in April 2019, the Kartrite Resort & Indoor Waterpark is the next destination resort you should visit! Located in the Catskills, this resort offers the largest indoor water park in New York State, with 11 different attractions. Highlights include several waterslides (we love that one is called Nor’Easter), a surfing simulator, and a fun sprayground with dump buckets for youngsters. The water park also offers private cabanas with mini-fridges, fresh fruit, beverage service, and more. Live nearby? Day passes are available.
Other resort perks include seven dining options (plus a candy store), an arcade, bowling alley, rock climbing wall, ropes course and a 3D adventure, plus organized activities (think arts and crafts and game nights) on select days. Parents will be happy to know there’s a fitness center and spa, too.
The all-suite hotel provides accommodations for families of all sizes, including a Family Bunk Suite that sleeps six guests. The largest room—a three-bedroom suite—can sleep 12 people comfortably.

We arrived around 11am and immediately got our Waterpark bands. The front desk told us we would get a text when our room was ready. The lady that checked us in was very friendly!
My kids loved the Waterpark. The lifeguards all seemed attentive and measured my son several times since he is 48 inches (I appreciated that they checked). Although my daughter is 42 inches, one lifeguard said it wouldn’t be safe for her to go on the double tube because she could barely reach the handles to hold on and keep herself in the tube—again I appreciated that they took the time to measure her and explain. There was plenty for her to do while her brother enjoyed the “bigger rides.”
We received a text at 3:57pm that our room was ready, so we headed over. My kids loved the bunk beds! The room was clean and comfortable—minus that you can hear your neighbors full conversations.
The food was also good—we had lunch at the waterpark, dinner by the arcade, and breakfast at the coffee shop. This was our first experience at an indoor waterpark—and it was definitely a good one!
The resort is beautiful and clean. The list of things to do runs long ! The water park was clean and fun. Definitely kept us busy :) Food and guest service are top notch ! The rooms are great. Spacious bathrooms. Overall a bang for your buck!
