Great Wolf Lodge

Indoor Water Park Resorts

By

One of the pioneers and the leading chain of indoor water park resorts, Great Wolf Lodge offers locations throughout the U.S. (and one in Canada to boot). All of the properties offer similar rustic, deep-woods themes, water park fun (of course), and full-featured family resort experiences. In addition to the watery fun, there are restaurants, spas -- geared to both adults and teens, an interactive game experience for children and teens, storytelling, a kids club, and other amenities.

The locations vary in size and features. The following list of resorts are arranged alphabetically by U.S. state, with Canada following at the end.
