We took the kids here while on a tour with the upper Dells tour group. So interesting. Beautiful and a lot of history, even the kids found it cool. Would reccomend.

Unfortunately, we were scheduled for jet boat tour of the Upper Wisconsin Dells. We thought we were going to travel on the boat. The boat does give you access to this point. Being much disappointed with the jet boat tour (which did not take us there) we ventured out by car preparing to discover Witches Gulch. Locals stated that this... More

Beautiful to see the natural formations in this hidden gem. When entering the small cove to dock it does smell like sulfur as my 4 year old brought to everyone attention, lol. Nice photo opportunities and a decent snack bar after walking the boardwalk trail.

My husband and I visited about 10 years ago and took the Upper Dells river boat tour. Decided to go again on our girls weekend visit. Tour narrator and crew were great! The gulch is a really unique place. It's amazing from a geological standpoint. Nice way to spend a couple of hours in the afternoon.

Take time to explore the Wisconsin river a relaxing ride on the tour boats, there are several Themed Tours from exploring Witches Gulch....to Zombie attacks, the theme is changed every so often. start out with a boat ride and then a short land excursion and back to the boat. We thought it was fun.

The highlight of our trip to the Dells. You would think you had been dropped on another planet. Highly recommended.

Witches Gulch comprised a portion of the Dells River Boat Tour which I rated moments ago. If you didn't know where you at, you might think you were in another part of the world, perhaps Costa Rica. The waterfalls here, the bend and the concession stand at the end of the bend were all breathtaking. You just wonder how it... More

This was included in the Upper Dells Boat Tour if you wanted to make the journey at that stop. We did, and it was interesting.

We take boat ride every year and enjoy Witches Gulch every time. Only way you can see it. Can't park and walk to it anymore. Some marvelous rock formations can be seen on the walk.
