It surprises many to hear that Wisconsin Dells is more small town than big city.

It's less than 20 square miles, its resident population numbers just over 5,500, the Wisconsin River bisects the community, and the Dells of the river are a five-mile corridor of cliffs, canyons, gorges and rock formations carved into Cambrian sandstone. The community has also been welcoming visitors for over 160 years. Looking for more facts on this tourism mecca? Feast your eyes on the info below.
