An all-weather getaway is possible with a trip to Great Wolf Lodge. This family-focused resort centers around a 38,000-square-foot water park and many indoor activities. 

Pack the family into a raft and adventure along one of the park's slides. The four-story interactive tree house in the center of the water park sets the stage for play in spray stations, suspension bridges and more. 

Once toweled-off, the resort's interactive adventure games, kids spa, arcade and kid-sized bowling alley are just some of the options for continuing the fun. Outdoor mini golf is available when the weather is favorable. 

After an active day, don't miss the nightly resort-wide story hour in the lobby. Rest well in one of the resort's varied room types. Some even include in-room caves and tents. 

From the press:
  • "Toddlers and preschoolers, in particular, will love donning pajamas for story hour with a singing clock and critters in the grand lobby" --
  • "The entire family will enjoy River Canyon Run, tube rides, pool, splash area and more in this indoor water park" --
