This is the season of exciting water activities. I have been fascinated by water activities since I first tried them in Gapyeong a couple of years ago.
My family and I enjoyed a two-day weekend family getaway. We enjoyed a variety of leisure activities at River Point Barge.
On the day of our weekend getaway, the fog cleared and the sun and white clouds appeared in the blue sky. The weather made our family trip even better.

Driving on the roads along Bukhangang River after Cheongpyeong Dam,
you will come to River Point Barge. You can see the spacious parking lot in front of the building. River Point Barge provides a variety of leisure activities and also has lodging facilities. You can enjoy a barbecue and an overnight stay at the same time here. All you need is your determination to enjoy your trip.
Of course, you can come to just enjoy the water activities, too.

You'll find a cafe on the 1st floor, where you can enjoy a cup of coffee while enjoying the panoramic view of the Bukhangang River.

As soon as I went out to the deck, I could see a blue river and hear excited screams.
My heart started to race with anticipation. This was a long-awaited trip :)

After checking my reservation at the entrance, we put on a wristband ticket like at an amusement park.
You can order some snacks or make a reservation for additional activities here.
No blob jumping? I read the notice carefully. It said that Gapyeong-gun Office had banned blob jumping because it was too dangerous.
Blob jumping looked dangerous in the first place. Looks like it ended up being banned.
There were a lot of tables in the lounge where can take a rest or have a chat with your friends in between activities.
You have to make a reservation to use the VIP Lounge.

All of the amenities including the changing room, beauty zone, cooking zone, showers, and restrooms were well-maintained and clean. The interior design was also beautiful. I took great photos here.
All of the staff members were so kind and polite.
Friendly staff always makes me remember the tourist destination for a long time.

My heart was pounding before it even started.
Once the boat started moving fast, I lost my mind. haha
The view of Cheongpyeong Lake from the boat was like a work of art.
I can still recall the wonderful view of the lake.
The group visitors seemed really excited.
The more, the merrier.

The water park seemed big and fun.
You can play or run around at the water park.
My son loved the water park, and spent a lot of time there.
You will lose track of time while playing with each other and running around the water park.
​The water park facilities reminded me of Let’s Go! Dream Team.
I really liked that TV show. It’s been a long time since I thought about it.
Participants put up their hands and shouted “Let’s go” at the starting line, then dashed onto the water trail.
My family and I really enjoyed water activities with a beautiful view of the Bukhangang River. It was a fun experience.
