WI Dells with a 1-year old...

Any suggestions for good places to stay in the Dells with a 1-yr. old? Fun activities or 'must-dos' for the little one?

I worry that the larger aater parks like Great Wolf or Wilderness are going to be really expensive and we won't be able to utilize most of the attractions with such a young child.

train ride: Riverside and Great Northern Railway. http://www.randgn.com/ This small size is perfect for your little one.

Wisconsin Deer Park http://wisdeerpark.com/

Original Wisconsin Ducks as it's a good mix of land/water and fun for the whole family:


Carousel Inn and Suites isn't fancy or a big resort but more like the mom and pops yet lots of fun candy themed water stuff just the right size for your little one.

or do Noah's Ark with the family for a day, there's lots now for the little ones there and then stay at just a small mom and pop like Indian Trail or Blackhawk.


or the Polynesian Isle, cheaper than Great Wolf but not as small as a mom and pop place

Unless you feel the need for upscale for you, I also suggest Polynesian and a day at Noah's Ark.
