About The Wisconsin Dells, WI Lodge

Va Lodge

We are the indoor waterpark capital of the WORLD!!

Great Wolf Lodge of Wisconsin Dells was one of the first major waterpark resorts in the area, starting an amazing boom in indoor waterpark activity. The Wisconsin Dells area is known for the amazing rock formations that were created when the great glacial lake of Wisconsin started to break free from its large ice dam. Those rock formations are preserved and visible still today and are a major draw to our area, as is the beautiful Wisconsin River, which runs right through the town.

The Wisconsin Dells area provides the simple pleasures of small town living combined with the excitement of a year round tourist destination. We are well known, not just for our waterparks, but also great dining, entertainment, and opportunities for outdoor activities! Great Wolf Lodge has been a part of that for 20 years! We opened our doors Memorial Day weekend of 1997, and have been an active employer in the community ever since.

We, at the Dells Pack, are proud to recognize and reward hard work and superior guest service. Many members of our management team started in positions like Lifeguard or Room Attendant, and worked hard to achieve career advancement and success. Being a part of this team means being a part of a family, and even part of a larger, growing pack, with opportunities all over the US.
