What a gem for Wichita! Feels like vacation and it’s only 15 minutes away! I enjoyed the whole property with over 50 women and we loved everything! We kayaked, floated, played Pickleball, shuffleboard, horseshoes, and generally just enjoyed life! BWB staff was great to work with – receptive and professional. Will be back! Elizabeth Boshuizen Hotaling

BWB has an awesome sandy beach, clean clear water, easy boat loading and unloading access and private atmosphere. We will definitely be planning several trips this summer.

BrightWater Bay was an amazing experience! My kids loved the beach area and the swimming in the lake. The house was amazing! Our day there was incredible and I would highly recommend BrightWater Bay to my friends and family! Jennifer Budde

Enjoyed BrightWater Bay today for Memorial Weekend! Great facilities, nice smooth water and it felt like a private retreat. If you’re looking for a getaway destination in the heart of Wichita check this place out!
