I saw Witches Gulch as part of the Upper Dells boat tour, it was a beautiful, haunting place. Shutterbugs will love all the photo ops! On a more prosaic note, there is a snack bar and bathrooms there, very handy because there are no bathrooms...More

This was one of the two stops on our tour of the Upper Dells with Dells Boat Tours. We had no idea that we were going to view something so beautiful. What a wonderful surprise. I would definitely recommend taking a tour with this company.

This is a well loved attraction of Wisconsin Dells. If you're visiting here for the first time, this is a must see! The area is very unique and we always enjoy the boat ride. This is perfect to do during the summer.
