The Great Wolf Lodge will feature the lodging chain’s most expansive waterpark. The quarter-of-a-billion-dollar property is under construction in Perryville in western Cecil County, MD.

The 700-room property is taking reservations for strays beginning on Aug. 1.

Perryville is about 20 miles west of Newark, off Interstate 95.

The water park at Great Wolf Lodge Maryland, will come with more than 128,000 square feet of enclosed space with an 84-degree temperature year-round.

The indoor water park will feature nearly two-dozen different water slides, including a Chesapeake Plunge raft ride.


Great Wolf is part of a group of family-friendly resorts that got its start in Wisconsin Dells and is now based in Madison, WI.

The company had located properties in resort areas like the Poconos but has since moved to sites near larger population centers, such as Dallas.

While Great Wolf likes to keep families within its walls where restaurants and other amenities are available, the resort is near the Hollywood Casino if dad or mom wants to get a little adult leisure time.

Great Wolf Lodges also come with cabanas with TV in the waterpark area at an additional cost. Adult and non-alcoholic beverages are available.

Great Wolf Maryland will also offer 7,000 square feet of meeting and conference space.

The company has been opening new lodges, thanks in part to the deep pockets of the Blackstone Group, a large private equity firm that helped to bankroll the purchase of the PBF Delaware City refinery more than a decade ago.

An overnight stay at Great Wolf Lodge, Maryland, including two days at the water park. Discounted rates will start at $199.99 per night with a discount promotion running into December. Great Wolf will also offer day passes for the water park.

Great Wolf earlier launched an advertising campaign seen here and elsewhere as the Covid-19 pandemic waned. The ads feature animated giant wolves transporting a family to one of its resorts.
