Today the Great Wolf Lodge pack is celebrating and saying, “Thank you!” We are thrilled announce Great Wolf Lodge has earned the designation as Best Family Resort in the 10Best Readers’ Choice poll sponsored by USATODAY.

Families across North America chose Great Wolf Lodge as their favorite, and we are howling with excitement.

Earning the top spot is quite an honor for our resorts. After learning we were voted Number 1, we reached out to Dave Parfitt, founder of the family travel website, AdventuresbyDaddy.com, and member of our Ask-A-Mom panel for his perspective why Great Wolf Lodge was chosen as the leader of the pack in family resorts. Dave travels extensively with his family and visited many of the resorts nominated in the category. In addition, he has stayed at four Great Wolf Lodge resorts, most recently our Williamsburg property. Here’s what he shared:

“Great Wolf Lodge rightly deserves to be listed among the top family resorts in the country. The signature indoor waterpark is just the beginning. The many recreational attractions including MagiQuest, indoor bowling, and mini golf; and one-of-a-kind experiences such as Scooops Kid Spa, mean there truly is something to please everyone in the family.  And after a full day of play, there’s nothing like relaxing together in one of the large, comfortable suites. With 12 different resorts, many located near popular national kid-friendly destinations, Great Wolf Lodge is the perfect home base for a family vacation.”

All of us at Great Wolf Lodge couldn’t agree more. Of course, we could not have earned this honor without our loyal guests. Whether you are one of our dedicated repeat guest families or are planning to visit us for the first time this summer, THANK YOU for making Great Wolf Lodge your family's favorite destination.
