Are lifejackets required?

Lifejackets are required for kids 10 and younger when in the water. Everyone is required to wear a lifejacket to do the cliff jumps and water slides. Lifejackets can be brought in or rented for $5/day.

What is the weather policy?

We are open regardless of rain, however if lightning is spotted we will close the water until no lightning is seen for 30 minutes. During this time, the remainder of the beach will be open, including the bar and grill so you can still enjoy food and drinks and play a game of volleyball or cornhole!

What if I lose something?

Lost items are often found by the end of the day. Please alert the staff of your missing item and we will help you find it. If your item cannot be found within the day OR if you realize you lost something after you leave, fill out the online lost and found form and when we locate your item we will contact you and have it shipped to you! You will be contacted by UPS to pay the shipping cost.

Are pets allowed?

Pets and emotional support animals are not allowed in under any circumstances. Service animals are federally protected and are allowed in, but are not allowed to enter the water without approval. Service animals should be marked with a special vest. Pets and emotional support animals can be boarded for the day at nearby businesses in Rolla, Missouri if needed.

Are there fish in the water?

We are an open environment, so we cannot guarantee the absence of fish or other wildlife. However, to the best of our knowledge we do not have fish and we make strong attempts to prevent fish from being in the water.

Why can't we bring in certain items?

Glass and grills cannot be brought in due to safety concerns. Glass containers are at risk of breaking and would be extremely dangerous and difficult to clean up. Please re-package certain items such as pickles and salsa in another container if you'd like to bring them in. Grills are a safety concern due to hot coals or gas and as such are not allowed inside or in the parking lot. We have stationary charcoal grills that we clean that are available to rent for the day. Please reserve a space ahead of time if you'd like one so they don't fill up!
Alcohol cannot be brought in due to legal reasons with our business and liquor license. Alcohol can be purchased at the Bar and Grill with a valid ID. Anyone found drinking in the parking lot or sneaking in alcohol may be asked to leave the property. 
Speakers cannot be brought in because they interfere with our own sound system, which is also used to make emergency announcements when necessary.

What is there to do at fugitive? Does anything cost extra?

We have 3 cliff jumps at 10', 15', and 20' heights, as well as a 60' waterslide and a smaller kids slide. When conditions allow, we have the inflatable Nautilus that has walls to climb and 3 slides - due to its inflatable nature, it may be closed if it is not holding air properly as a safety precaution (this does not happen often and is checked regularly). In addition to the thrills, we have a calm kids area and shallow section that ranges from 0'-4' deep, going back all the way to the island. None of these areas or thrills cost extra, but lifejackets are required for the deep water areas. Lifejackets can be brought in or rented for a $5 fee.

Can you do flips off the jumps?

Yes, you are welcome to flip off of the jump if you feel comfortable doing so. It is not recommended if you have no experience flipping before.
