Family Resorts

While everyone has their own definition of fun, family resorts in Wisconsin strive to show young and old a good time under the same roof. From water parks and lake activities to world-class golf courses, spas and diverse accommodations, our family-centric resorts provide everything essential for an unforgettable vacation any time of year.

Lake Life on Lake Geneva

Lake Geneva is a top destination for families in search of a resort that caters to everyone.

Choose The Abbey Resort, which sits on a scenic harbor near the lake, for your annual family vacation. You and your loved ones won’t run out of things to do here, from lounging in the pool and hot tub to boating, bonding over a bonfire and dining at the on-site restaurants. For accommodations, choose between lakeside suites, guest rooms and villas. Find more fun outside the resort at nearby golf courses, shops, wineries, breweries and more. 

Enjoy water fun year-round at the Timber Ridge Lodge, featuring an indoor/outdoor water park and an all-suite hotel. Timber Ridge guests also have access to the spa and golf course at Grand Geneva Resort & Spa, which has villas and suites, another great option for families. In the winter, Grand Geneva becomes a popular destination for skiing.

Waterpark Fun in the Dells

The Wisconsin Dells, also known as the “Waterpark Capital of the World,” has countless family resorts with plenty of water attractions for kids and adults. 

Watch your kids shoot down water slides, maybe even join them, and then relax at the hot spring area at Great Wolf Lodge. Besides a waterpark, the resort features a variety of restaurants, shops and an arcade room. When it’s time to turn in, choose between a roomy condo or a standard or themed suite with plenty of space for the entire family. The in-suite KidCabin, for instance, features cabin-themed bunk beds and a twin bed for the kids and a separate queen bed for the parents. 

On the shores of the Wisconsin River, choose Holiday Shores Campground & Resort for a nature getaway in the Dells. Accommodations include tent and RV sites, guest houses and motel rooms. Spend your days lounging at the private beach or on a boat, and enjoy a bit of friendly competition on the floating obstacle course.  

Other Family Destinations

From luxurious spa treatments to lake activities, bike rentals and winter sports, The Osthoff Resort on Elkhart Lake is a year-round destination featuring one to three-bedroom suites and guest rooms. In the winter, the resort embraces the holiday season with its popular Old World Christmas Market.

For a waterpark oasis in the middle of a city, choose Tundra Lodge Resort, Waterpark & Conference Center in Green Bay. The family resort is home to a thrilling waterpark, arcade game room, restaurants and lodge-themed suites. 

And if you’d like to bring your family dog along, there are plenty of pet-friendly hotels that can accommodate them. 

When you visit Wisconsin, stay at a family resort, where there’s something for everyone.
