Home / About  / What is Wake Nation

Wake Nation Cincinnati is the first and only full sized cable wake park in the Midwest! Our park allows both beginners and experienced riders to wakeboard, water ski, kneeboard, and wakeskate on our 10-acre lake, WITHOUT a boat!

The Main lake tows up to 6 wakeboarders, skiers, or kneeboarders at the same time with ropes attached to a moving cable that sits high above the water. Riders are towed around our lake through a course of optional sliders and rails. There is no boat at Wake Nation and all of the riders are pulled by the overhead cable system. When a rider falls, the cable keeps pulling the other riders and the cable operator is able to seamlessly add a new rider on to the system. Once a rider falls, they will swim to the outer shore of the lake and make their way back to the starting dock to get in line for another ride on the cable!

The entire park was designed from the ground up to provide the ultimate ride experience to both first timers and experienced boarders. Beginners love that wakeboarding at Wake Nation is fun, easy to learn, and allows everyone to progress at their own pace. Advanced riders love the access to our state of the art obstacles and jumps as well as the ability to load the line for big air!

Wake Nation is great for groups and families because multiple people can ride on the lake at one time. Check our “Groups” page for information on discounts for groups of 10 or more riders.

Wake Nation is great for spectators too. There’s a huge observation deck so any non-participants can relax and enjoy the weather while watching the action out on the lake. Our park provides free parking and free admission to everyone, so you only pay if you’re going to ride.

After you’re done hitting the lake, Wake Nation is a great place to spend a few hours. There’s a full concession stand to grab lunch or a snack as well as a pro shop where you can check out all the latest gear, accessories, and clothing from the industries top manufacturers.

Wake Nation Cincinnati is located in Northern Cincinnati at 201 Joe Nuxhall Way (in Joyce Park) in Fairfield, Ohio 45014.
