About The Grapevine, TX Lodge

Va Lodge

They say everything is bigger in Texas and the Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine is no exception. At 605 rooms, it’s the largest Great Wolf Lodge and employs over 700 full-time, part-time and seasonal Pack Members. The resort has become a “must-do” destination for families in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and many of our Pack Members are former guests who came here as children and decided, “I want to work at Great Wolf Lodge when I grow up!”

Pack Members enjoy discounted access to the resort and waterpark passes for Bear Track Landing, our indoor waterpark, and in the summer our outdoor park, Raccoon Lagoon. We offer a discounted meal program for Pack Members to purchase lunch and dinner and hold frequent Pack Member events like our Platinum Paw Awards and Pack Member Appreciation Day.
