North America’s largest indoor waterpark, Great Wolf Lodge, is opening in Florida

Some things are worth the trip, and this major attraction is one of them. The oft celebrated Great Wolf Lodge just broke ground on a new concept in Naples. This will be Great Wolf Lodge’s very first location in the Sunshine State, a market the ownership team has long wanted to zero in on.

Great Wolf Lodge South Florida will feature family-friendly fun with attractions and amenities for all ages. It’s the brand’s 21st resort in North America and will feature 500 family-friendly suites and an expansive 100,000-square-foot indoor water park. The resort will sit on 20 acres of Collier County next to the Paradise Coast Sports Complex.


The drive to Naples runs approximately 2.5 hours in normal traffic. It’s a similar commuting time to the Disney and Universal Parks in Orlando. Great Wolf Lodge South Florida is expected to open in early summer 2024.

The park is estimated to create several hundred jobs, and provide a multi-billion dollar economic impact in the region. It should bring in millions in tax revenue for Naples, as well.

Here’s what to expect:


  • 62,000-square-foot family entertainment center
  • 100,000-square-foot indoor waterpark, heated to 84 degrees
  • Multiple dining options featuring classic America faire
  • 500 family-friendly suites

This massive resort embodies “Eat, Play, Stay.” Learn more about Great Wolf Lodge by visiting its website.

This park could make anyone feel like a kid again. Unwind together on the lazy river, catch a wave in slap tail pond, find thrilling twists and turns on a water slide that is just your speed.​ Start a rock collection at Oliver’s Mining Co., defeat the shadowy darkness in MagiQuest, explore new heights on Howler’s Peak Ropes Course and score big at the Northern Lights Arcade.​ When you get tired, just retire to your lodge.
