Knott’s Berry Farm also has a hotel and water park that you can visit that makes your vacation even more fun. The whole family will love all the special food and fun that you can enjoy!

I was provided access to special events to facilitate this post.


Just a few days ago, my family and I were invited to enjoy Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel and Soak City for a staycation! 


We were able to stay in The Knott’s Berry Hotel on the Snoopy wing. It’s a really fun resort that just went through some really great upgrades. We normally stay at the Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel a few times a year because it is very convenient and comfortable for our whole family! 


The Knott’s Hotel rooms feature vibrant colors that are spacious and comfortable. The hotel features a SNOOPY-themed wing, a fitness center, pool with children’s activity area, lights sports courts and many other amenities. 

Dining options are delicious and room service is offered. The best part of the Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel is that you are just steps away from fun! Knott’s Theme Park and Soak City tickets can be purchased right at the front desk of the hotel and you can take advantage of the discounts the hotel offers.


Knott’s Berry Farm’s Camp Snoopy celebrates it big 3-0 this year and they know how to celebrate!!! A complete restoration of the entire land! I will be bringing you more info on the new Camp Snoopy later in June… but here is a little sneak preview!


Not only will the entire Camp Snoopy be fresh and revitalized, they also are adding three new rides! Charlie Brown’s Kite Flyer, Pig Pen’s Mud Buggies, and Linus Launcher. 

This restoration and addition to Camp Snoopy demonstrates a commitment to keeping Camp Snoopy a beloved Children’s area for generations to come. My girls enjoyed every second they were there and it’s such a fun feeling to know that my girls are enjoying something that i enjoyed at their ages too!


If you are a fan of water parks like we are… You are going to go crazy about Knott’s Soak City Waterpark in Orange County! This map shows how huge the park is! This was actually my first time there and we are totally going to be going back multiple times this year!


This is the perfect way to spend a hot summer day. There are slides & attractions for every member of the family. The thrill seekers to the little ones just getting their toes wet will find fun at Soak City. If you want to sit back and relax, take a trip down the Sunset River and enjoy the perfect day in the water.


Make sure you protect your families skin with some good sunscreen! And protect your phone from water damage with this amazing product the BubbleShield from The Joy Factory! I was given one to try and it was awesome being able to bring my phone into the water areas!


The slides at Soak City are thrilling and exciting yet tame enough that my 4 year old still loved them just as much as the 14 year old!


My girls loved every moment in the water and sun! It really was a perfect day. The weather was amazing and the time with my family was wonderful!


The slides and attractions are really offer something for everyone. I think each one of us found our personal favorite.


Sunset River is THE way to relax! Grab an inner tube and float all day long or just let your body be pushed by the gentle current down the river.


This Laguna Storm Water Tower will get you praying the weather clears on the Typhoon, Tornado and Cyclone tube slides. 



Try the Pacific Spin for a thrilling multi-person raft ride that includes a 132 foot long tunnel that drops its rider 75 feet into a six-story funnel! 



There are plenty of green spots in the park to sit and take a break in the shade. Fun and relaxation at it’s best!

Knott’s Soak City is open now! 


Which would you choose… one of the fast and thrilling slides or the lazy Sunset River?

  • That looks like so much fun! My kids are creeped out by characters, though. LOL. Even at disney sometimes.

  • Aww, this wasn’t open when we lived in LA. All we had was the small one in San Dimas!

  • Looks like you had a fantastic vacation. The hotel looks great and the water park looks like a blast. How fun that they have a special wing of the hotel for their younger guests.

  • This place looks totally cool. I so wish my girls did not grow up on me. haha. I loved your pictures and their smiles. Added to my list to take my grandchildren if I ever have any haha. My girls are all career girls. Thank you for sharing.

  • That funnel freaks me out but I so want to see someone go through it!!! This looks like so much fun and really makes me want to go to a water park!

  • I adore waterslides! And I would love to try that “tunnel/raft” slide – wow looks exciting! I have to check this out next time we’re nearby!

  • I’m so envious because this looks like an awesome trip!! My son would love to visit here.

  • I’ve never been there, it looks like fun! I’d do both! First the thrilling slide then the lazy river to catch my breath!

  • Knotts is on my short list of places I want to bring my kids. It’s only cross country…

    But they have snoopy!!

  • Okay, wow… sounds like y’all had a blast and that hotel sounds awesome. Can’t believe y’all got to meet ‘stars’ HA! That water slide is something else, as well. Thanks for sharing

  • Wow! I’ve never been to a waterpark like that, amazing! I’m a big baby for big slides, especially water slides so I would stick with the simple, kiddie stuff but it would still be fun.

  • Looks like a fantastic place to go vacation. I am a big fan of spending my time going down the Sunset River.

  • Sure looks like a blast! I will totally put Knott’s on the list of places to go! Thanks Heather!
