About Great Wolf Resorts

Great Wolf Resorts provides a dozen nationwide destination properties known as Great Wolf Lodges. Destinations because of its indoor and often outdoor water parks! These aren't just resorts with water slides. We are talking towering slides, lazy rivers, water sprays, dump buckets, wave pools, whirlpools and water-park play areas.

Besides the outstanding water parks that kids just cannot get enough of, other family-friendly amenities include themed restaurants, story time events and a giant video arcade. Kids can enjoy the Cub Club, where arts, crafts and activities entertain, or visit Scooops Kids Spas for ice-cream themed treatments.

Themed restaurants are located on property, providing meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as snacks and desserts when sweet tooth cravings hit. Many locations also offer Starbucks and Pizza Hut Express. Homemade pizza can be delivered to suites, as well.

The resorts feature family-friendly suites, many of which are themed and include kid-friendly touches, such as bunk beds and pint-sized furnishings. Suites can accommodate up to eight, making the resorts even better for larger families.
