Camp WaterColor has been a staple of the WaterColor Inn & Resort community for years. It’s a place where children and parents can play games, explore the outdoors, and make new friends. This “kids club” style retreat in the heart of WaterColor was designed to merge with the beautiful natural setting of South Walton—pine trees, rustic pathways, and coastal wildlife. Camp WaterColor has undergone a renovation to include an expanded pool, pool deck, lazy river, and other amenities that are both kid- and adult-friendly.
A casual dining destination, The Canteen, is also included in the expansion. The Canteen plays off of the summer-camp vibe of Camp WaterColor, offering walk-up counter service and a self-ordering kiosk for snacks, drinks, and food items such as grilled cheese sandwiches, s’mores, and many other campfire favorites. Ice-cream sandwiches from Deep South Freeze will also be served from The Canteen, and—for the grown-ups—tropical frozen drinks, specialty cocktails, and canned wine and beer are available at The Canteen Bar.
As the only dining option in Camp WaterColor, the menu includes a little something for everyone to enjoy on the pool deck! Made to blend into the natural setting and the camp persona, The Canteen is the go-to spot to relax, cool off, and have a bite to eat with the family.
The signature dining destination of WaterColor Beach Club, the WaterColor Grill is the go-to casual yet high-quality restaurant for homeowners and guests. With a distinct coastal atmosphere that reflects the Southern beach vernacular of the WaterColor community, the grill commands some of the best views in South Walton.
WaterColor Grill offers a lunch menu of fresh seafood, salads, sandwiches, and more. Dinner features an Italian flair with build-your-own or specialty wood-fired pizzas and salads. Happy Hour is a highlight daily, and the full-service bar serves poolside tropical favorites, alcoholic and non-alcoholic frozen drinks, and canned beer and wine throughout the day. A selection of quick-service menu items from the grill is also available from the pool deck. All this is of course enhanced by the beautiful views of the pool and the Gulf of Mexico.
Inspired by the beach in everything from its menu to its decor and laid-back vibe, the WaterColor Grill is family friendly and perfect for lunch or dinner.
Margaritas and a chic rooftop setting—what could be better? Over the years, the bar at the WaterColor Beach Club gained the nickname and reputation for being the “’rita bar,” and we’ve decided to embrace that identity with a rebranded name and look! Serving a variety of margaritas—on the rocks or frozen—along with an expansive selection of tequila, specialty cocktails, wine, and beer, Rita Bar is a casual rooftop lounge overlooking the WaterColor Beach Club pool deck with seating at the bar or outdoor cabanas. Its menu includes popular bar apps and sandwiches with a Baha Mexican twist and other coastal-inspired favorites. The new look and feel of the Rita Bar evokes a casual yet trendy outdoor lounge, perfect for relaxing after an afternoon on the beach or in the pool, grabbing drinks with a friend, or enjoying a cocktail while watching the sunset.
