Epperson Lagoon: The Floridian Backyard Oasis You Don't Want To Miss

Updated: Aug 15

Everything you need to know to plan your family fun day at Epperson Lagoon, Westey Chapel


A little oasis in Wesley Chapel aka the middle of no where, with an upbeat vibe and great views…. Does this sound like somewhere you’d like to visit? You can join the crazy fun and climb the obstacles in the middle of the lagoon or you can find a luxury raft to float in.

Epperson Lagoon is a 7.5 acre mini water park in the middle of a burst of newly built homes. Making this the back yard of thousands of new homes recently constructed. This was meant to be a private amenity ut they have opened it for public use. Wesley Chapel is on Florida's West Coast, about 45 minutes north of Tampa. They offer a one stop shop for some summer fun. Water obstacles, huge bouncy slide, food and ice cream truck, bar and grill, and of course lots of water! Being that much of the water is shallow, it warms up with the sun nicely. You do need to reserve a ticket in a specific date to enter. A full day reservation for the end of July took 3 weeks to book, but I imagine this is the height of their busy season. There is also an after 3 pm entry. Full day admission tickets are $35 for an adult and $25 for a child. After 3:00 adult visitor’s pay $30.00.
