Jacob's Review:
   There is a big waterslide! It looks scary but it's really fun! The Paddle boats are awesome! You can race other people on their paddle boats and you can peddle backwards too!!
  This recreation lake beach offers swimming, foot propel boating, and a water slide. The lake Belton is situated on also offers boating if you have a boat. There is no fee for activites duty military although if you are not military there's just one fee to gain access to Blora. In Blora the only thing that cost money is the drinks you can buy from the food and drink stand.


Dad's Notes:
   This is the military ran Belton Lake Recreation Area. It is open to the public and has some great amenities including a FREE Waterslide and free paddleboat rentals! They have beaches, playgrounds, B-Ball courts, pavilion and picnic areas, volleyball courts, softball facilities, camping (primitive & RV & Cabins). Military personnel can rent boats and jet skis at the Marina. Anyone can get a family pass - good for the entire family.

   Belton Lake Outdoor Recreation Waterfront activities - This area is open from April to October. Once you pay the gate fee - $2 for military or $8 for civilians- your family can enjoy swimming in the lake, the super fun waterslide that features two 300-foot-plus water slides that curve and plunge from the start tower down to the four-foot splash pool, paddleboats with four seats so there's enough room for everyone and the kid's auto wash for no additional fee. (Waterfront activities will be based on availability of lifeguards and water temperature). There is also a picnic area near the beach, as well as other areas scattered throughout the park, some with bbq grills, so bring your own food and snacks along. There's also a snack bar that sells refreshments.
