Dreaming of a cool, splash-filled summer? The Wisconsin Dells, in the southern part of the state, lies on the Wisconsin River in a region known for sandstone formations carved by glaciers long ago. Nearby lies the forest reserve of Mirror Lake State Park, which is known for nature trails and camping. It’s perfect for families with children, but also offers entertainment in the evening for adults.
Because this is different from the basic trip a family might take in the summer, I’ve put together a Wisconsin Dells packing list of 17 essentials along with recommendations for what to wear in the Wisconsin Dells. I’ve also included answers to FAQs and a second on what NOT to bring, to make sure you’re ultra prepared for this splash worthy vacay.
