We just returned from a trip to an indoor water park. I think it is the best winter getaway to take with kids! Since we hadn’t gone swimming in several months, I was out of practice when it came to packing. I really wish I had used a water park packing list.
We had to run out to Target to grab things that we were missing, but being the off-season, they weren’t even available. Learn from my mistakes and be prepared. Here is a packing list for your next visit to a water park.

Water Park Packing List
- Beach bag to carry personal items
- Bathing suits (one for each day, because putting on a wet bathing suit is the worst)
- Swim cover-up
- Floaties/ life jacket
- Swim diapers
- Sandals or water shoes
- Pool towels (check if they are provided or not, some places charge for towel rentals)
- poncho towels are great for kids because they can also use them to provide privacy if they need to change
- First aid kit– for skinned knees
- Waterproof pouch for your phone
- GoPro with floating handle/ water proof camera
- Cooler with drinks and snacks (some parks do not allow coolers, so check ahead of time)
- Small toys for your kids (my daughter likes to swim with a barbie)
- Book/ magazine to read
- Hair brush, elastics, detangler
- Change of clothes
- Hand sanitizer
- Wet bag/ Plastic bag for wet bathing suits
- For outdoor areas: sunscreen, hat
