“Mt. Olympus Campground is great!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Took our camper (24 ft Kodiak Hybrid), for a 2-night stay at the campground. You can reserve either a gravel or blacktop RV site.....we had blacktop with full hook-ups including cable (101 stations scanned!). Small pool at campground was clean and fun for the kids. 2 baby slides into the pool. Sites are a bit close, and compare to a KOA in size, with just a few feet to your neighbor. This never bothers us, as we usually only are at the camper to eat and sleep. Quiet times were respected. Bathhouse is new, clean, with ample showers and toilets. They have tents already erected for rent, as well as treehouses. Saw folks playing basketball and tennis on-site. The best part about staying at this campground are the Mt. Olympus Water/Theme Park passes that are included in your stay. Campground is within walking distance, but you can park for free if you want to drive over. The day of departure, we were able to leave our camper after check-out in the theme park lot for FREE. This allowed us to drive about the Dells area, without worrying about the camper. We returned to find our camper safe and ready to roll home. This was a great value and we will be back next year for sure!

Here's the reality of staying at Mt. Olympus. You are paying for the water parks and the amusement parks...not the hotel (motels). The bigger the family...the better the value. We have a family of 5 which would cost $200 per day to use the theme parks ($40/person/day). We paid $600 for our three day/two night stay which equals the cost of three days in the parks. The "stay and play for free" promotion should really say, "play and stay for free". We were able to use the parks on Friday before check-in, all day Saturday and all day Sunday even after check-out.

We stayed in a Village room, which is not necessarily near the park. If you choose this cheaper option (the hotel Rome is on property but much more expensive and not very nice), ask to be put in building 3, 4, or 5. These are within a very easy walking distance to the parks. The room was clean but no frills at all. It was almost like staying in a cabin. Two queen beds, a dresser, an older TV, a small night stand, a mini fridge, a microwave, instant coffee and two chairs. The floors are laminate so they appeared cleaner than most hotel carpet. The beds do not have box springs and the blankets are very thin. No triple sheets like in most hotels these days. The towels are thin and there are no hand towels or bath mats. Many families in our area had coolers with them and some were even tailgating with grills outside of their rooms. The Village locations are motels with no hallways.

The parks have enough to do for the kids and if your kids are older, you can feel comfortable as a parent staying in one place and having your kids check in periodically. If the weather would have been warmer, we would have done more in the parks but we bailed on most things and let the kids do whatever they wanted. Since the weather was cold, it was nice to have go-karts, roller coasters and other amusements to keep the kids busy since the water was COLD for July. The kids definitely got their monies worth on park admission and we went in the parks all three days.

Concessions are plentiful and reasonable compared to what you would spend at Six Flags or Disney. Pizza was expensive but everything else was reasonable for a "resort" (used lightly).
After checking out, I did some research to stay at the Holiday Inn and pay to go to Noah's Ark for a day. The hotel for two nights would have been $500 and Noah's Ark would have been $150 for our family for only one day. Places like the Great Wolf Lodge are nicer, more per night and they have their own small water park that appeals to younger children. You have to decide what experience is right for your family.

Bottom line is that the Dells is not a great place to visit but if you do, expect to pay a lot for not much. No place is better that the other when you figure in all of the other costs that will come into play for your family. Most of the hotel/motels are on the low end of the luxury scale which matches the clientele from what I encountered. Most visitors didn't appear to be luxury-type people...low end of the socio-economic scale.

If water parks are your thing then a day will do in either Mt. Olympus or Noah's Ark. The Dells have some beautiful natural areas with opportunities for some great outdoor activities. Take advantage of what nature offers and ditch the touristy, cheap, cheesy strip of low-end shops and stupid attractions like Ripley's, the horror houses and other shows.

We went to the Dells due to a business trip in the area so we thought that we would check it out after seeing the area on the Travel channel. We won't ever go back since there are way better things to do in America than the Dells. If you must go, don't expect much, plan to spend more money than you should, expect rude travelers who lack social graces, hope that your kids have a good time, and do yourself a favor and investigate the great places in America for your future travels.

Room Tip: Village buildings 3, 4, and 5 are the closest to the Mt. Olympus theme parks. Bring clothes pins to...

First, the check in was insane.. too many people. staff wasn't very friendly, workers looked like they were frustrated. when they told us we would be staying at a village it didn't sound so bad Until, on our way there we realized that the villages were old motels that were bought and that there were around 25. we stayed at building 14. almost a mile away from resort, it was all very confusing. we had to go back and forth in car if we wanted to go to the theme and water park.It was overpriced for one night. We called to get another room at the actual hotel and they told us we couldn't there were no rooms. We noticed that all the hotels pools were closed or covered by plastic sheet on windows or actually covered with gravel, too make you go to the resort to swim. The resort was super crowded. We went on a day that was cold and the indoor pools were so crowded you could barely walk around. On our stay we woke up to find some cockroaches crawling around the walls which was terrifying, the beds were uncomfortable, the bathroom hanger for the towels literally fell off the minute i put a towel on it.saw no staff whatsoever around until they came to tell us it was time to check out. The other guests that stayed there had the same idea as us to stay out of the hotel the entire day until it was time to sleep. i do not like this place . the first time we've been here since 3 years ago . Everything has changed. recommended getting another hotel . This place is not worth it . We will not be staying here again. and hope to prevent more people from staying here.

Room Tip: Don't go here, find another hotel..

We booked our trip, wanting to be able to spend a day at the themepark with the kids on our way through town. We were told to stop in at hotel Rome, and pre-check in to receive our park passes. The check in line was as bad as the lines in the park, it took us over 30 minutes to "pre check" in. At the Pre Check in, we were told that we would get a text with our room number later in the day.... ok. I can live with that, if it would have happened that way!. With our pre check in in hand, we headed to the theme park. What a joke. We waited in 40 minute lines at the go carts, just to drive ONE lap before returning to the pit.

After the better part of the day at the park, I checked my phone... no text. So I drove on over to where our room was supposed to be (building 11), parked the van, and called the registration desk. I was told that the computers were down, the person I talked to had no way to look up the room, but she took my number and promised to call me back within 15 minutes. I waited the 15 minutes, and then some, then finally drove over to the Hotel Rome to see if I could get some information. After waiting in line at the reception desk, I finally talked to a young lady there, and was told that the computer was still down, and that she could call me with a room number when the computer came back online (which would be momentarily). I left the building, was waiting in the van for a considerable amount of time, when finally she did call. It was exactly one hour after my initial call to get the room number that it was provided. The person that I talked to on the phone, never did call back!

Back down the road to building 11, found the room, and commenced to settle in for the night. I must say at this point, building 11 (and I'm sure many others) are properties that apparently are old run down motels that Mt. O buys up and slaps their over priced rates on. This building had clearly seen better days, and although it had a bit of a face lift, it was cheaply done, and very poor quality. The bathroom is so small, that to be inside the bathroom and close the door, you have to straddle the toilet. To make matters worse, the heating/ac unit worked poorly, there was no insulation (for sound) in the walls, and we got to hear all sorts of things through the night. At about 10:30pm a delivery truck pulled in, and proceeded to unload the laundry for the next morning. Lots of banging and clanging right under our window. . Not a very restful night, the beds were uncomfortable, and we just had a total feeling of being fleeced out of our money.

I would not recommend staying at this place!

Room Tip: go elsewhere

my wife booked a room at the Mnt. Olympus Village. because it was about two hundred bucks a night cheaper then staying at the main hotel. They placed us in a run down old hotel near the downtown area. we were to have a nonsmoking room. when we entered the room it smelled like someone had, had a keg party in it and of cigarettes. Someone had placed the bag from the ice bucket over the smoke alarm and there was all kinds of dead bugs in the corners of the windows. Wife called back to main hotel and said no way would we stay here. After having to show pictures to the hotel manager of the room they finally gave us a room in main hotel. Room was better but the hallways are falling apart and it's very loud. would never ever stay here again. Way Way over priced.

Stayed this weekend for a family reunion and what a disappointment. Stayed in the village, which was a motel that needed serious upgrades. Had to get to my room via the back of the building. Stayed in bldg. 12. Had to request towels, because the room was not cleaned. Tried to relocate to the hotel, but the desk clerks are trained to lie about no room. They had rooms online but I was told they had nothing available. Over priced concessions too. Never again will I stay here. It is over priced, who stays in a motel for 3 nights for $1,000.00.

Checking in is a hassle, you go to the main hotel and they let you know where you will be staying. We were put in to building 15. Pulling in to the parking lot each room look more like out houses. The location is close to a mile north of the theme park so you have to drive each time you want to go to the park. The room has 2 doors both leading outside, which you can actually see light coming in around the doors. Our reservation was also messed up we reserved a room with 2 queen beds, we were given a room with 1 queen and bunk beds. Theme park is very busy we waited an hour for some water slides. Overall I was disappointed that they charge premium rates for run down rooms.
