Perfect accommodations for a girls night or family/friend getaway! So impressed by how large the condos were and how much space we had! 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms, big kitchen with full fridge, oven, dishwasher, good sized living room with fireplace and blu ray and also a large 4 seasons porch with fireplace, tv and jacuzzi tub. It is a jacuzzi tub that could comfortably fit two adults, so be aware as the website says it's a 4 person tub! :) Convenient shuttle service to the water parks and very sound proof room - we couldn't hear any noise around us! Will definitely be back with kids and family!

Went back to Wilderness On The Lake due to past fabulous experiences. Having stayed at many other Dells resorts, this one is our family favorite. I pre-booked an overnight 2 bedroom condo via phone &
got confirmation on room of my choice with a lake view. Arriving Sunday afternoon, we were told room was ready & keycards were issued. Taking elevator up to our floor, we proceeded towards our room. As we approached our destination, we all noticed a foul odor. Upon opening our door, the stench was overwhelming. We instantly felt nauseated from what smelled like something had died & was rotting inside that room. Also, I saw that this room was different from the one I booked. Agreeing room was unacceptable, we all went back to lobby and requested the correct room I had prior confirmation for. Desk clerk said she was sorry that room was not available. I reminded her I had prior confirmation for a lake view room; she replied there were none and wanted us to wait until someone would clean same room, expecting us to stay in it.
I restated that room was unacceptable. Eventually, after a long wait (more than an hour had passed since we 'checked in'), she provided keys for a similar room. This room did not have a lake view but was clean & did not have the stinking stench of the earlier room. We stayed and tried to enjoy the remainder of our stay. Due to finally getting into a room so late, they did give us an extra hour to to check out the following day.

Room Tip: although we had prior confirmation for a specific room, we did not get it. The room we were given i...

We took a trip to Wisconsin Dells for the first time last June with our 3 children. We absolutely loved the 2 br condo at the Wilderness on the Lake resort. It was very spacious and had everything we needed for our stay. The hot tub was a plus...loved the 2 fireplaces, but we obviously did not use them in June. It was nice to have a washer/dryer in the room with our size family. We had a great view of the pool and lake. Staff was very friendly in assisting us. The kids liked the indoor waterpark there...it is small, but fun while staying there. We also liked the fact that it wasn't too crowded like other resorts at the Wilderness because it was away from all the other waterparks. We are definitely planning another trip this coming summer 2012. We went in mid-June last year and it was still chilly on days we were there, so if you like it hot, I would suggest going a little later in the summer.

Room Tip: Third floor seemed to have a really great view of the lake.

we stay in the Dells a couple times per year. it is fantastic for the family. We enjoy either Wilderness or Kalahari. Wilderness is more reasonably priced. This last time we were there four days and the first couple were off season. When we checked prices it was a lot less than Kalahari. I would recommend any of their facilities.

Room Tip: good off season rates.

We stayed one night at The Wilderness in Wisconsin Dells in the hotel. This was our first visit and we stayed for my daughters birthday along with a few of her friends. The check in was confusing and we had to wait in line. Depending upon where you stay on the property there is apparently different check in spots but I was not aware and went to the first place we saw. Had we known and went straight to the hotel we were staying in it would have been quicker. There are three inside waterpark areas and our room was close to two of them with the third being accessible via the 2nd floor halls that connect most of the property. There are also 2 glow in the dark 3d mini golf courses, a big fun play area, two arcades, laser tag, bumper boats and a haunted mansion/maze. The hotel is cashless and we were even able to order pizza from a local pizzeria and charge it to our room. Our room was nice and the price was very reasonable.

We will be back. This was a great family getaway. There are so many waterparks, both indoor and outdoor that the weather almost doesn't matter. Wilderness on the Lake is removed from the larger Wilderness complex, but the shuttle service made it easy to access other areas. The 2 bedroom condo was huge! It was great to have a "homebase" for little ones to nap, with a full kitchen so that we could eat in as needed to save money.

Room Tip: Pick a room further from the pool area if you don't want daytime noise.

We returned to the Wilderness on the Lake for the third straight year in Sept., 2011.

We rented a two bedroom, two bath condo for four adults and a 4 year old. As before the furnishings were fine. The kitchen items along with the dinnerware and utensils were more than adequate. The kitchen appliances were in good working order. There were no surprises.

The waterpark in this building is great for children. The bigger park is in the main resort. I free shuttle bus is available to get one between the buildings.

No complaints. Everything was as expected. Pretty sure we'll go back in 2012.

Room Tip: Many types of rooms and accomodations to pick from. Condos to cabins to suites. All price ranges. Go...
