The Wisconsin Dells, located midway between Chicago and Minneapolis, is the "Waterpark Capital of the World." Situated on the edge of Mirror Lake State Park in this Midwestern getaway is the Mirror Lake and Tamarack resort. Offering elegance and the comforts of home, the Mirror Lake and Tamarack is the perfect place to explore the Dells.
The Dells calls itself the Waterpark Capital for a reason. There are 22 indoor water parks and water playgrounds in the area, plus 3 outdoor water parks open in the summer. The area also has the world’s largest looping water slide, the largest indoor/outdoor water park, one of the world’s largest surf pools, and a wide away of many other water slides, rides, and attractions. The area also has plenty of frozen water activities in the winter, including skiing, skating, and snowmobiling.
Back at the resort, the water fun continues with an indoor and outdoor pool. The resort also features indoor tennis courts, basketball courts, children’s game room, and playground equipment. Mirror Lake State Park, located next to the resort, has 2,200 acres with three picnic areas, bike rentals, boat rentals, kayak rentals, and the Seth Peterson Cottage, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The centerpiece of the park is Mirror Lake, which is often so calm that not a ripple marks its surface.
In town, the Dells downtown area is known as both quaint, quirky, and 100% all-American. Several unique, one-of-a-kind boutique stores line the streets, only to be outdone by several, equally unique restaurants. The area also has several night life options, including a casino and bingo hall, theaters, and shows, including the Tommy Bartlett Show, a classic water skiing and boating show featuring sparkly costumes, unbelievable stunts, fast boats, and a laser light show during night performances.
If you are looking for the perfect vacation spot for you and the kids, or just for the kids-at-heart, the Dells is the perfect spot. And Mirror Lake and Tamarack offers you the perfect spot to enjoy all the area has to offer.
