They only allow water inside the fenced in swimming area. However, there are TONS of picnic spots outside of the fence that you can bring your cooler to.

Now that raises an interesting question. Do they have food concessions in the pool area? I presumed they did not which is why I considered bringing my own food.

The concession stand is not inside the pool area. It's outside. Delicious flavored ice, too!

The website says "drinks" are allowed, does not say that is limited to water.
