For the past several years, I have gathered a group of friends and, in the dead of winter, trekked up to Warrens, Wisconsin for a weekend at the Three Bears Resort and Waterpark. Their comfy cabins and fun indoor waterpark (designed by Ramaker & Associates) always made for a relaxing weekend. We particularly enjoyed sitting in the outdoor hot tub while icicles formed on our hair and eyebrows. It certainly made for great memories.
But in September of this year, the resort closed, and its future remains uncertain. Admittedly, the destination is quite literally in the middle of just about nowhere, but it was attached to a very successful campground that had flourished for years. Although new owners are being sought at this very moment, one has to wonder if the indoor waterpark bubble has burst, or at least started to deflate a bit.
