Baraboo–Wisconsin Dells Airport (ICAO: KDLLFAA LID: DLL) is a public use airport located three nautical miles (6 km) northwest of the central business district of Baraboo, in Sauk County, Wisconsin, United States.[1] The airport is located between Baraboo and Lake Delton, Wisconsin on US 12 and it is adjacent to the Ho-Chunk Casino.

It is included in the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2017–2021, in which it is categorized as a regional general aviation facility.[2]

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this airport is assigned DLL by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA[3] (which assigned DLL to Dillon County Airport in Dillon, South Carolina[4]).
