Are you planning a trip to one of the sixteen locations of the Great Wolf Lodge? They are so much fun to visit, and kids absolutely love them. If you are planning to visit, you may be wondering what to pack for your trip. Here is our Great Wolf Lodge packing list. If we forget something, leave us a comment!
Disclosure: At least some of this trip was either comped or provided at a media rate. Post may contain affiliate links. All opinions are our own.
Bathing Suits (bring two per person if you plan to visit the park more than once. No one likes getting in a wet bathing suit)
Water shoes for the water park
Regular clothes for each day (casual clothes are fine unless you plan to visit a more upscale place outside the resort)
Regular shoes for daily wear
Toiletries (rooms include hairdryers)
Entertainment for the kids (books, electronics, etc)
Personal electronics and chargers
Baby supplies (if traveling with a baby)
Sneakers/Closed-toe shoes for the ropes course (not at every location)
Large beach towels (towels are available in the water park, but you aren’t able to bring them to your room)
Cover ups (to go back and forth to your room)
A beach bag to fill with your stuff
Goggles for the pools
Snacks (there is food available, but it’s a good idea to have snacks anyway)
Glitter tattoos if your kids want them (some of the resorts sell them, but you may want to bring your own)
Beverages that you may not want to purchase
MagiQuest wands if you already have them
Workout clothes (for the gym)
All of the Great Wolf Lodge resorts offer loads of things to do for families. Although entry to the waterparks are included with your room stay, lots of things, like the spa, arcade, MagiQuest, stuffed animals, and bowling, are an additional fee. Be prepared before you go so that you know exactly what your budget is and how much you are willing to spend. Also know that while there are some restaurants right in the property, you may want to go outside if you are staying more than one night.
