Wisconsin Dells Area Information
Chula Vista Resort is located in Central Wisconsin in Wisconsin Dells, one of the Midwest’s premier destination areas, brimming with natural beauty and countless other Wisconsin Dells attractions.
The picturesque Wisconsin River forms the backbone of the Dells, featuring towering sandstone bluffs and canyons carved out by rushing waters from a catastrophic flood millions of years ago. Today, the river and The Dells draw visitors from around the world to marvel at their natural beauty, fish and paddle their waters, and engage in a host of other activities — from haunted houses and hair-raising roller coasters to horseback riding and parasailing.
Want to see The Dells by water? Take your pick from tour boats, serene charter excursions, amphibious Duck boats, pontoon party barges, and thrilling jet boats. If you prefer to explore The Dells on your own, you can rent a canoe, kayak, personal watercraft, or fishing boat. You’ll find many water activities right out your doorstep at the Chula Vista Boat Docks.
