We spent a long weekend with the kids and everyone had a great time... and very tired at the end of each day. The pool facilities were amazing; built for kids of all ages. Food was a little expensive but expected for the captive audience. Many other activities to try that add to the fun; arts & crafts 'shop', wizard store and activities, and a bar for parents. Easy to find and good parking.

Kids love the water park. The hotel room is also great. We stayed at wolf den and the kids were so excited about the bunk bed and wolf theme in the den. Not too much choices for food. But you can bring you own since they have fridge and microwave in the room. There are couple of fast food places nearby. You can also drive to Lucky eagle casino to eat the buffet. Overall nice experience and we will come back again.

the water park is amazing! the hotel is nice too! if the kids get tired of the water there is a quest game that they LOVE!
some simple tips. bring some food. There is a refrigerator and microwave in the rooms bring food for breakfast and or lunch...save some money. There is a pizza place right in the lodge pretty reasonable for lunch or dinner, there is a great place in the same parking lot called the "burger claim". They have cheap, but good burger and breakfast sandwiches so recommend going there for any meals if you don't want to bring food.
also as a tip...you can stay in the park until it closes the day you check out so you don't have to pay extra for late check out just an FYI. You can put your luggage in the car and the play in the park and shower and change there before you head home.
Also buy the paws pass when you check in, you get the wand for the kids to do the quest game, the wolf ears and the parents get the REFILLABLE soda for the entire stay. Get the sparkle tattoo on the last day so it lasts longer, otherwise the waterpark will wash it off faster then then 7 days.
I am planning now on going back with my nephew. He is 4 1/2 and LOVED it! Felt safe with all the lifeguards, the water was clean, and no one got athletes foot like some of the reviews hinted at, and my nephew and I are on the sensitive side.
It was a great way to escape to cold rainy fall season of Washington and Oregon without having to go to Mexico or Hawaii. It was warm inside the waterpark and water temperature was perfect.

We came here with our out of town family and our little two year old. Our room wasn't ready at 4pm, so a lovely front desk employee upgraded us to a bigger room to get us in right away. The pool was very busy, but we had a great time. It is a very expensive place to go, but much like Disneyland, you just know ahead of time they are that way. We got a pup pass, which is really nice because you get a lot of little things that you can spread along the stay. Overall, a really great first visit, and we'll definitely be back.

We found this Great Wolf Lodge to be a perfect location for a big family reunion! We booked our rooms so that all our children and their children could stay close by. The event was perfect! Our grandchildren totally enjoyed the activities, presentations, learning experiences that were available to them. Bonus was that they also enjoyed the water park theme -- I was a bit unnerved with the huge tube ride - I was backwards the entire time, but our grandchildren loved the rush.

The food services that are onsite are good, not prime, but clearly healthy and enjoyable for everyone.

No complaints from anyone in the family and it's unanimous ... all of them want to return ... we'll work on making that happen for sure!!
