We have taken our family to Wisconsin Dells a couple times in the winter. We loved The Wilderness with little kids, you can read more about our stay here. Thanks to our awesome readers here are some tips for your next trip to the Dells!
Wisconsin Dells Tips for Families
Bring your Sunscreen!
Gretchen, “Be sure to bring your sunscreen for the indoor wave pool. If the sun is out you can get a sunburn through the roof! Also, I brought a small ball for my kids to play with in the pool.”
Pack Hangers & a Stroller
Nikki, “… I bring hangars to hang up all our wet swimming suits in between trips to the waterpark. I also recommend a stroller so you are not trying to carry your kids and your stuff at the same time.”
Bathrobes & Flip Flops
Tracy, “Take bathrobes for the kids and flip-flops. Walking in between the water parks can be chilly.”
Moosejaw Pizza & Dells Brewing Co.
110 Wisconsin Dells Pkwy S, Wisconsin Dells, WI 53965
After a long day of swimming with little kids ordering pizza from Moosejaw to our room was the perfect dinner. Make sure to check online for coupons and ask for plates and napkins. The pizza is delivered in a fun car with a moose on top!
150 Gasser Road, Lake Delton, WI 53940
Kristina, “Buffalo Phils! Food delivered on a train, and a fun arcade full of games!”
This is the ultimate fun and family-friendly restaurant. The restaurant is huge! We didn’t have to wait at all to be seated. Trains deliver food to all the tables. It may be a little distracting for the kids but it sure is fun. Watch for fun little surprises on the train as well. There is also a huge amusement park arcade attached to the restaurant, Knuckleheads Bowling & Indoor Amusement Park.
