Our Olympic Swimming Complex is the only facility of its kind in the Intermountain West. With heated indoor and outdoor pools, diving boards and platforms, waterslides, a natural hot water spa, and the new Portneuf Kiddie Cove, it’s the best kind of fun for kids of all ages. 

The free form Olympic-size pool holds nearly a million gallons of warm, crystal clear water. This former AAU championship venue is 50 meters long by 8 lanes wide with a full diving set up above a 17’ deep end. The outdoor shallow end offers toys for younger swimmers and ample play room.

The diving platform is a thrill for those brave enough to leap from its 5, 7, and 10 meter heights. Four springboards flank the platform tower making this a diver’s paradise.

Enjoy exhilarating waterslides for the whole family, including small slides for the kiddies. The speed slides’ six-story body flumes send riders screaming into the refreshing runout below. Beware: the 60 foot drop is not for the faint of heart! Two curly tube slides rocket visitors around and around leaving them laughing as they splash into the shallow runout at the bottom.

Ample lawns surround the pools and offer an excellent place to picnic, sun bathe, or simply watch the good times unfold. Awnings, umbrellas, and lawn chairs are welcome.

Coolers and outside food are permitted; no cooking, glass, or alcohol please.

Lava is the perfect place for your family reunion and vacation!
