Wisconsin is a state that is full of many exciting things to do and see. One of my favorite spots to go to in Wisconsin is the Wisconsin Dells/Baraboo area. Here you will find endless fun for the whole family. Whenever we go to Baraboo, we stay at the Ho-Chunk Casino for some gambling excitement!
Ho chunk Casino is located at s3214 Highway 12 in Baraboo off of Interstate 94. Just look for exit 12 and it will take you directly there. It is a great spot to stay at because you are really close to all of the craziness of Wisconsin Dells.
Ho Chunk is a very large Casino that has a nice hotel attached to it. The hotel offers its guests 315 rooms. The rooms include a mini refrigerator, microwave, hair dryer, coffee maker, cable TV, and free wireless internet. All rooms also have their own private balcony where you can relax at and enjoy the beautiful scenery below. You can also upgrade yourself to a suite room if you want that offers a fireplace and a stocked wet bar.
As you walk into the Casino's entrance, there is a large fountain that is complete with animals like bear, eagles, and fish, all fake of course, a tall rock waterfall, trees, sounds of birds and other wild life and a beautiful light blue sky scene above with white fluffy clouds. It is very peaceful to look at and listen to.
There are escalators that take you up to the second floor that are located right in the middle of the amazing scene. This is where all of the hotel's great restaurants are located at.
We usually eat at the Copper Oak Steakhouse. It is a very elegant style restaurant that has no dress code. All of the meals are cooked over an open flamed grill. It makes the food taste so much better! That is why it is hard to pass on this place when we visit here.
In here, they serve everything from steaks to shrimp to Lobster to Salmon. The price range is anywhere from $10 and up. But I am telling you, it is well worth the price. Make sure to order a side of their whipped sweet potatoes. They are out of this world!
The Copper Oak restaurant also offers a wine list that has a variety of wines from all over the world. Their martini list is also amazing. You can sit back, relax and enjoy one of their great martinis as you listen to the sounds of the automatic piano playing classical music in the background.
If you would rather eat some place else that is a little more casual, you can go to the Sunrise Café. Here they serve great breakfasts and lunches. Or you can head over to the Wo-Zha-Wa Sports Bar. Their burgers here are simply mouthwatering. You can also order chicken wings, pizzas, great salads and much more in a fun filled sports themed restaurant. If buffets are more of your cup of tea you can head over to the Stand Rock Buffet for a variety of International and American food that will fill up your stomach!
At Ho-Chunk, your kids can have as much fun as you do. They have a supervised entertainment facility that offers hourly child care services. They take children any where from 6 weeks to 12 years old.
The rooms inside are all separated by the different age groups. They have a tiny tot room, a techno quest adventure and arcade, a karaoke star stage, an indoor playground, a Barbie doll community, and a quiet zone to relax at. So no matter what age your child is, they are sure to find something to entertain themselves with in here.
The hotel also has an amazing workout area that surrounds a huge indoor walking track. The Aquatic Center offers a 25 meter lap pool, a whirlpool, and a wading pool. You can feel safe hanging out in here with your kids because there is a lifeguard on duty at all times. It is a really cool area!
The casino has many different conference rooms and ballrooms for their guests to rent. Whether it is for business or pleasure, they will take good care of you. The rooms can fit anywhere from 50 people to 2000 people. What better place to have a wedding at or a business meeting! Your guests are sure to have a fun time!
Then when you are ready to have some real fun, adults 21 years and older can head over to the casino and try their luck. The casino is very large and offers different price ranges and games types for all gamblers. The casino has over 2,400 slot machines that start from a penny and go up. From Wheel of Fortune to Press Your Luck to Double Diamond, they offer it all. Many of their penny and nickel machines have fun bonus games that can keep you playing for a long time!

They also have a smoke free poker room where you can join in a game of Texas Hold Em, 7 Card Stud, Omaha Hi-lo. Or you can go over to the 600 player Bingo hall and try your luck there.
