The Peach State has numerous trails that lead to beautiful waterfalls and crystal clear pools. But on those really hot days, you might not want to take a hike just to get to some water. Splash Island's water park in Georgia might be your answer and worth a little day trip if you're really looking for all the fun with none of the work.

Splash Island in Hiawassee is a huge inflatable water park that everyone of all ages can enjoy. Think of it as a local miniature Wipe-Out course.

It's located at The Ridges Resort on Lake Chatuge, so you could even spend an entire weekend here and explore the lake if you've been craving a little rest, relaxation, and adventure. 

There are many obstacles and athletic challenges throughout the park including an action tower with ropes and a "rock" climbing wall, a Tarzan swing, and even monkey bars. 

If you're not into the obstacle side of things, this spot also doubles as an aquatic bounce house so you can hop along the inflatables all day long.

Before entering the water park, all "Splashers" will listen to a 5-minute safety video to make sure they know the rules and so you can still have fun while staying safe.

You must also sign a waiver before bouncing.

The price you pay will depend on how long you want to stay in the park. For all-day play with a life-jacket included, it's just $25.

If you want to keep your time short and sweet with a quick hour of play, it's only $10!

You're more than welcome to bring your own cooler with non-alcoholic drinks and snacks to have a little beach picnic after you get done jumping. Affordable, unique, and fun day date with the bae anyone?
