Getting away with the family to create new memories is one of my favorite things to do! Whether we are heading to the beach or the Great Smoky Mountains, I want my family to experience and enjoy one another. There is no better way than to have both the beach and the mountains than by heading to Great Wolf Lodge!
My family received a complimentary stay at Great Wolf Lodge in order to experience their new Summer Camp-In program. All opinions are my own.
Great Wolf Lodge LaGrange, Georgia
If you have never been to a Great Wolf Lodge before, it is something to EXPERIENCE. Whether you have little ones or big ones, this is one family-friendly resort destination that is not only a waterpark but also an adventure park. I like to think of it as a cruise ship on land! Once you get there, there is no reason to leave.
Activities & Attractions
Beyond the thrills of the water park, Great Wolf Lodge Georgia features dozens of entertainment options under its massive roof. Families will delight at the wide variety of activities found throughout the entire resort, perfect for children of all ages. Featured attractions include the 40,000-square-foot Great Wolf Adventure Park, a full-service family entertainment center featuring the Howlers Peak Ropes Course®, Howl In One™ Miniature Golf Course, Ten Paw Alley™ family bowling, Northern Lights™ Arcade, and Rustic Ridge, a multi-story rock wall.
Additionally, Great Wolf Lodge Georgia will delight children with the dozens of kid’s activities from morning to night. From waking up with Yoga Tails™, a fun and creative yoga class set to engaging stories, to crafts and interactive science experiments in the afternoon, and finally ending the fun-filled day with nightly Story Time in the lobby—the wolf pups will retreat to their dens at night fully tuckered out. The resort also features the all-new Forest Friends show in the Grand Lobby. This interactive animated show utilizes the latest in 3D mapping technology to bring the Great Wolf Lodge characters to life in new and exciting ways and help tell the story of Great Wolf Lodge.

Great Wolf Lodge Summer Camp-In Celebration
A few weeks ago my family was invited to Great Wolf Lodge to experience the resort and preview their new Summer Camp-in Celebration that runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Imagine having the “camping” experience indoors with plenty to do minus the bugs and mosquitos! That is exactly what Summer Camp-In Celebration is. From themed camping rooms equipped with indoor tents, a faux campfire, lanterns, pennants to several exclusive, limited-time offerings across the resort, Great Wolf Lodge is taking the time-honored summer tradition of camping and turning it outside-in with an all-new family escape.
Join Wiley and friends for a breakfast buffet to remember! Just like camp, a bugle will ring out only here it is signaling the arrival Wiley the Wolf, Oliver Raccoon, Sammy the Squirrel and other characters. Guests will engage in some flag-raising fun while enjoying tasty food and festivities. Join in the counselor-led songs, dances and napkin twirling.
Nothing screams summer louder than the pool and Great Wolf Lodge’s water wonderland is summer’s destination spot! Here guests can jump right in and have a splash-tastic time with games, DJ music, and refreshments. Find out how low can you go in limbo or decorate and race a rubber duck for the Ducky 500 Race. Even if the weather is dreary outside, there’s always a party at the Great Wolf Lodge water park!
It’s just not summer without a BBQ, right? If you’ve got a-hankerin’ for mouthwatering BBQ, their dinner menus offer summer favorites like potato salad, baked beans, macaroni and cheese, and a smorgasbord of slow-cooked meats. After all, no summer camp should be without BBQ and all the fixins’!
They’ve also whipped up three delicious adult summer beverages: Spiked Lemonade, Campsite SunRise, and Backwoods Bourbon.
Are your children into challenges? Campers can earn badges and rewards by participating in activities including arts and crafts and competitions. It’s just like being at camp! When campers collect ten badges, they earn the ultimate honor – the title of Trailblazer.
Wind down the evening by gathering in the Grand Lobby for the Campfire Ceremonies. When the majestic fireplace is lit, the nighttime fun begins. There’s singing, face painting, s’mores, silly story-swapping, character shows, and the time-honored Great Wolf Lodge tradition, Story Time. Stay up a little longer and get your groove on during the DJ led dance party under the stars!
S’morelier Dessert Experience
Be sure to save s’more room after feasting on the mouthwatering summer BBQ food options, because you have to experience the S’morelier Dessert Bar! Great Wolf Lodge has taken this staple of summer camp up a notch with their special s’mores dessert bar featuring sauces and toppings that will make your mouth dance in delight!
