Station History

Private donations led to the historic-style facility opened in 1989 to replace a station that was damaged beyond repair on July 4, 1982.

As part of the Mobility First initiative of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the Wisconsin Dells station is scheduled to receive a new wheelchair lift, foundation and enclosure, and sidewalk to the platform at an estimated cost of $34,000.

With more than 80 attractions, Wisconsin Dells offers everything from heart-pounding excitement to stunning natural beauty, like a theme park nestled in a nature preserve. The station is in a downtown shopping district lined with quaint fudge shops to world-class spas with luxurious product lines.

This facility has a waiting room and is staffed by an Amtrak employee four days a week. A caretaker opens and closes the station on the other three days.

The Wisconsin Dells station is served daily by two trains.
