When do you reopen?

The Cove at BearX is closed to the public for the season, but we are open year-round for private events. We plan to reopen to the public in April 2023.


The Cove at BearX combines resort style activities & service with aspects of a pool & day club. The massive lazy river flows past the swim up bar, VIP bungalows/cabanas & the ProFlow surf attraction. Absorbing some vitamin D and playing yard games are other popular activities at The Cove. The cable wakeboard lake is a feature for guests looking to take their experience to the next level.

Covemandment #2 asks guests to leave some things to the imagination when dressing for The Cove. This guideline maintains the Good Vibes in the venue and ensures everyone is comfortable and feels welcome. Please watch our Covemandments video to help you decide on the best fit for your experience! We will leave it up to you and your judgment on the bathing suit. Feel free to bring a backup or extra shorts if you feel unsure.

We got you covered! You can bring your own lock to put on one of our free cubbies, purchase a lock in our Pro Shop, or pay to use one of the lockers available.

Can I leave The cove and come back?

Sorry, my dude, there is no readmission into the venue once you leave the property. If you need to grab something from your car, one of our Vibe Protectors can escort you to your vehicle and back into the venue. This is to ensure the safety of yourself and our other guests.
