Great Wolf Lodge in Wisconsin Dells is located right off 1-90 and is surrounded close to other large resorts including the Kalahari and Wilderness resorts. It is also close to the outlet mall, Knuckleheads arcade, and several restaurants.

We recently stayed at Great Wolf Lodge for the first time and loved it! If you’re looking to book a vacation soon, check out our experience there. If you’d rather not go to Wisconsin Dells, there’s also a Great Wolf Lodge in Gurnee, Illinois. We stayed at the Gurnee Great Wolf Lodge in 2022.

The best part of Great Wolf Lodge is the large indoor and outdoor waterpark located in the hotel. No matter what the weather, you can enjoy swimming, water slides, a kid’s play area, relaxing in a hot tub, and more. There are 13 slides and nine pools kept at 84 degrees all year-round.

The waterpark is perfect for all ages. There are several zero-depth areas as well as a family pool with basketball hoops outdoors that’s open during the summer.

Great Wolf Lodge has several room options including double beds, themed rooms, and condo suites with full kitchens that can sleep up to 16 people!

We rented a room with two queen beds for our four person family. It included a sitting area with a loveseat, small table and two chairs. The room was spacious and clean. The hotel was quiet after 8 pm.

The resort was perfect for our two kids, ages five and two. There were waterslides that our five year old could go on with us and kids play areas where our two year old could splash around. Both kids (and parents!) had a great time.
