While you’re enjoying the natural splendor and lively entertainment of the Wisconsin Dells area, don’t neglect a visit to one of the true anchors of the region’s entertainment and business lineup: the Ho-Chunk Casino. Administered by the Ho-Chunk Nation—which enjoys a rich history in the Upper Midwest—this gaming and resort complex is conveniently located between Baraboo and Wisconsin Dells near I-90 and I-94.
Feeling lucky? The Ho-Chunk Casino offers a full lineup of table games, from poker to baccarat, and better than 2,200 slot machines, including the ever-popular “Big Buck Hunter” and the “Michael Jackson King of Pop” experience. You can also settle in at the 600-seat bingo hall, or try your hand at the races with off-track betting.
Food and Refreshments
All that action on the gaming floor or the bingo hall inspires a hearty appetite, and fortunately you’ve got plenty of options that count in the Ho-Chunk complex. Looking for an elegant meal? Try the Copper Oak Steakhouse and Lounge, where you’ll be serenaded by a piano player as you enjoy fine food and wine. A more casual atmosphere pervades the Wo Zha Wa Sports Bar and Grille, where you’ll wash down great-tasting burgers, pizza, and other hearty fare with a mug of draft beer. Other dining options include the Stand Rock Buffet, the Sunrise Cliffs Café, and the Ho-Chunk Grill.
The Ho-Chunk experience goes beyond the casino and the restaurants. The site also includes a full-service resort, providing a great option for accommodations during your Wisconsin Dells vacation or business trip. More than 300 rooms and suites in a variety of styles make for elegant, comfortable lodging: You can choose anything from a balcony-enhanced deluxe room to one of the VIP suites, where you can relax after a fun-filled day in the Jacuzzi. There’s also an RV park on the grounds with nearly 50 stalls.
The Ho-Chunk complex also accommodates both small- and large-scale events with its fully equipped convention center. As many as 1,200 people can assemble in the spacious Grand Ballroom and up to 100 booths can fill up the exhibition space.
Concerts and Other Events
Keep an eye on the Ho-Chunk Casino calendar to find out about the many lively concerts and performances the site regularly hosts. What better way to cap an already unforgettable visit to the Wisconsin Dells country than with an evening of live music or other entertainment?
So, you can be sure that all bets are off when it comes to having fun in the Dells and that a visit to Ho-Chunk Casino is a great place to start!
