“Wilderness Resort”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

We stayed here for a family reunion and had a great time. We had the four villa units in one building, which worked well. Frankly the units themselves are dated as is most of the hotel, but that's not what it's about. The water parks were great and getting a cabana was cheap and convenient. Much of the hotel's features were overpriced, but that is to be expected. The fitness center (a tiny room) was awful, frankly, but other than that we were pretty pleased with the stay.

We come about 2 times a year. And we have to admit we love it more and more every time. This time we stayed in the 500 rooms. And during the MLK holiday. We were surprised to see this many people in January and yet have enough space to choose any pool we wanted. As you may already know this resort has 3 large indoor waterparks. So there is no possible way to be bored. The price is incredibly cheap. We highly recommend this for any family with any age children or no children at all.

Room Tip: 2nd floor 500 area. Easily accessible

We went on a family vacation to the Wilderness in January. Our group consisted of 10 people ranged from 1 year to 57 years old. We all had a great time! We stayed in the 4 bedroom condo and loved it! On our first visit we were concerned about having to take the shuttle from the condo in order to get to the waterparks (January weather can be a little chilly in a swimsuit), but they come right to the front door of the condo and drop you off right outside the waterparks' doors. We even wore flip-flops to and from the pool with no problem. The condo has lots of extra space and would easily accommodate many more people. The full kitchen helped with reducing cost as we brought all our own meals and drinks. Waterparks were great for all ages and took up most of our time. We also did mini golf which was fun and relatively inexpensive for our large family. This was our second visit to the Wilderness and I know we will be repeating the trip in the upcoming years.

The only reason I did not rate this place five stars is because the condo we stayed in was not very clean. There was dust all over the place, the wood trim was grimy, the condo smelled like must, and the floors were dirty. It needs a deep cleaning vs. just a cosmetic touch - especially since the condos are pricey.

However, very fun and CUSTOMER SERVICE was EXCELLENT!

This was our third & final trip to Wilderness Resort in Wisconsin Dells. The rooms are starting to get that dank, musty water smell. The high pressure timeshare tactics are new & very unwelcome & very unwanted. That alone cemented in my mind that we will not return. They are doing new construction, so inconveniences are expected, BUT the wave pool is not handicap or stroller accessible during the renovation. The guest services were wonderful, friendly & accommodating but unfortunately this doesn't undo the 'damage' that has bern done in my mind for this property. The worse part is all the walking. The layout it very silly & inefficient. The indoor waterparks & play area/arcade should be centralized & rooms arranged around it. Nope! Opposite ends of the property. Very disappointed overall, will not be returning in the future. Not horrible by any means but Wisconsin Dells has so many competitively priced winter choices why settle?

We started staying here about 10 years ago! This is the one of the biggest if not the biggest hotel in Wisconsin Dells! I have recommended all my family and friends to this hotel. The price is always decent & always a deal to be found! Soo much to do on the resort, you'll want a couple days for sure! I've stayed in the hotel, at Glacier Canyon, Wilderness in the Lake, Frontier Cabins and all are awesome!!

We went with the our three kids - 8, 5, and infant in the main hotel - Klondike Kavern. We stayed in a 3 bedroom condo about 5 years ago. What a difference. While we enjoyed our stay last time, but this was much different. Last time, we stayed over a holiday weekend. It was very crowded and the lines long for the slides. The condos can be a long walk and a little disorienting when you're tired after a long drive. We had the yummy breakfast and dinner buffets. Very good food! Kids ate free for dinner! They had NY strip steak for the buffet - I think they might've lost money with my husband.
They are in construction - opening indoor go-karts and more. I can't wait to come back!
Also tip, I some how got a better price calling up last minute than on-line. I called because I wanted to get a room close to the wave pool. Glad I did!

Room Tip: Call the information desk to let them know what you want with room specs - quiet? Close to pool? Nic...
