Campground w/waterpark in TN, KY, VA, NC, IN, OH

Two families looking for a nice campground with attached waterpark or several pools within a 5-6 hour drive of Bristol, VA/TN area for June of 2019. We have 4 children, ages 12, 13 and 2-15 year olds. If there are site-seeing things close by, that's a plus.

We need FHU campground with nice amenities, but we need to have some activities that the teens and tweens can do alone.

We have been going to the beach somewhere, each year and have found that we don't spend a lot of time on the beach, so there is no need to drive so long to sit by a pool or outside our campers. We have done the OBX, Hunting Island, Gulf Shores, Jekyll Island and other places.

We have looked at both Cedar Point (OH) and Carowinds (NC), but have not decided whether these will suit our needs. Cedar Point is expensive, at $109-159/night at this years' rates and Carowinds will be HOT!!

Any other suggestions?

You may be interested in the Yogi park in Luray, Va. They have expanded their water park for this year.
Should be 5 hour drive or less from Bristol area.

We're also big fans of Lake Rudolph Campground in Santa Claus Indiana. The campground butts up next to Holiday World Amusement Park/Splashin' Safari Water Park. Free shuttle runs from the campground to the park all day and evening.

Been 14 yrs since we have been to Cherrystone Camping resort, in VA loads of amenities, pools, docks for crabbing, onsite seafood/restaurant, 1/2 day fishing tours and sunset cruises. I have read the place has expanded much since! :C

Dolly Partons Splash Country in Pigeon Forge. Close to Bristol and lots to do for kids and adults. Lots of choices in campgrounds close by.

not on your list of states but I-MAX State Park in Michigan has a water park on site.

Never heard of this. Is this a typo? If not, can you provide a link?

We are less than an hour away from here. It's interesting that you would suggest it - we were there back in the fall.
