I visited the Pawnee bath house on Oct 18th. I think that the building is being misused. Dirty, filthy floors and toilets in bad condition. Cigarette butts and beer cans on grounds. Looks like the younger generation,sad to say, is out to destroy the place. I didn't think that liquor should be allowed. I came all the way from the west coast and this was a disappointment.

The Pawnee Bath House is closed for 2010 season, due to warm weather, lack of rain, and that algae stuff that grows in that kind of water. BUMMER!

We love the Pawnee Bathhouse! My family and friends make the drive there at least once every summer, usually at the end. The water toys change every year, so you never know what will be there. The hours are unpredictable, so you need to call ahead of time and make sure they are open. That said, the bathrooms are cleaners than an outhouse, it is less crowded than a lake, and a lot cheaper than White Water! It's like going to the lake, but with diving boards, paddle boats, and a concession stand! If you're looking for clear water and concrete, you should probably look elsewhere.

We are very sorry for the confusion. A call was made to the Pawnee Bathhouse and the hours have been corrected. Thank you for letting us know and we certainly apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused your family.

We drove 2 hours just to find it closed!! The hours on the website stated everyday 1-6. Guess what it is only Wed- Sun 1-6. No one was around. The restrooms were dirty and several wasps. However the landscaping was nice. I also did not see a water trampoline or diving board as mentioned in everything I had read. I would like to try again just not sure.?


From bhines on 07/24/10

it only costs $2 a person and the facility was clean and everyone was very nice when we went. My kids had a blast, they range from age 17 to 6 yrs old..I'm 33 and had a blast going down the water slide..there were also life guards on duty and free paddle boats..no it's not Big Splash..but it's a lake w beautiful flowers w/ trimmed grass and sand not cement and chemicals.. My family loves it, we drive from Bixby to there all the time.


From un happy family on 07/07/10

this place was not made out to be what it looks like on this website. we got there and we were very unhappy with what we had showed up to. from the pictures it looked like it would be fun and exciting but it wasnt. there was no water trampoline, there was tall grass everywhere in thewater plus sticks and rocks,the high jumps were not what we expected either. the bathrooms were covered in wasp n wasp nests and had no toilet paper n were very un clean. this place was a big disappointment. our family will not attend this place for another family outting. it was ridiculous!!!!
