Activities

Lake Delton: there's over a million reasons to go

Over a million visitors come to Lake Delton every year, so you know there's plenty to do. Formed in 1927, this man-made lake has been a hugely popular summer destination for decades. You'll never be short of things to do on the water, whether it's canoeing, kayaking, or other water sports. Due to the number of water parks in the area, this part of the country has earned the nickname "The Water park Capital of the World." And if that's not enough, you can hop on board an ex-military landing craft, and take a scenic river tour through the Wisconsin Dells.

Weather

Toasty summers and crispy winters in Lake Denton

It's not just the water parks and scenic lakeside setting that draws in the summer crowds, it's the weather too. Lake Delton has a humid continental climate, which means it experiences warm pleasant summers. During the peak months of July and August, it gets into the mid 80s, although it's a very different story come winter. In December and January the temperature often dips below zero, and you can expect snowy conditions throughout the season. As you'd probably guess, it gets pretty busy from June till August, so you'll find that your Lake Denton vacation rental is a bit cheaper come September.

Natural features

Gorge yourself on Wisconsin Dells natural beauty

While Lake Delton's most thrilling attractions may be man-made, its most beautiful one is all down to Mother Nature. The picturesque Wisconsin Dells (also known as the Dells of the Wisconsin Rover) is a 5-mile gorge that formed during the last ice age about 15,000 years ago. It's known for its natural beauty, in particular its sandstone rock formations and canyons. The surrounding woodland is a rich mix of northern and southern oak and pine trees. And along its rough trails, you'll discover many rare animals, including numerous species of dragonflies and birds.
