Best Things Nearby:
The best places nearby for toddlers would be the Mid-Continent Railway museum, Storybook Gardens and Timbavati Wildlife Park, and the Wisconsin Deer Farm.

Best Things About the Resort:
The resort has lots of activities planned to interest young children and anyone who likes to do small crafts. Everyday there is also an ice cream social where you can build quite a large ice cream sundae or banana split for $3 or less. We didn't take advantage of it, but there was a mini golf course and place to get paddleboats on-site as well. As for the accommodations, the cabins are small, but the privacy is nice. The children's indoor pool (zero entry) has a slide, seesaw, infant bouncers, and two animals that squirt water. Of course our daughter just enjoyed the small water fountains.

Resort Experience:
The campus is very spread out so unless you are fortunate to be near the registration where the indoor pool is located, or near the clubhouse that houses the activities, you'll need the car even at the resort. There are a variety of housing options. We had a cabin with two bedrooms which was only 650 square feet, but I preferred that over the townhouse style where you can hear the neighbors. My grandmother had a one bedroom and could hear the infant crying next door at 4am!

The staff is very friendly. The few suggestions we made to the resort on our comment card are as follows:

1) Put knives in higher drawer within kitchen.
2) Provide area map at check-in; shouldn't have to request one.
3) Do not have someone running an activity at the clubhouse and exchanging towels at the same time--kids became restless with candy bar bingo.

Overall we would consider going back to this resort, but would probably see if a different resort had an opening first to see which is better.
