Our Escape to Fugitive Beach

FugitiveBeach-01Every now and then you wish you could just get away but you really can’t because you’re broke and “away” is thousands of miles and somewhere tropical… Well, this isn’t exactly that but it’s pretty awesome in it’s own regard. May I present,¬†Fugitive Beach, which is located in Rolla, MO (about a 2 hour drive from St. Louis). My wife, daughter, niece, and myself took a little day trip to Fugitive Beach to see what it all about. It was very cool. When you enter you can immediately see this massive water slide. Then upon further inspection you can see two different platforms where you can jump into the water. There was a bar and grill there if you didn’t bring your own food. You cannot bring your own alcohol which I think is a good idea, but you can buy beer, etc at the bar there. You can also bring a cooler with food, soda, water, etc, but no glass and remember to not be a litter bug and pick up your trash.

It cost us $6 per person and we also had to sign a waiver before entering. Makes sense. This is/was a quarry. We setup our beach blanket, some chairs, and a cooler. Leaving all of that behind we took to the water. Everyone but my daughter Abby went down the slide and jumped off the cliffs. I don’t blame her. When I was her age I would only hold onto the ladder whenever I got into the pool.

Did I mention I took my GoPro? I didn’t? Then maybe instead of reading all of this you should just watch this instead…
