“Wilderness on the lake”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

We at the Wilderness on the lake recently, which is off the Wilderness resort about a mile. This has it's own waterpark which was shut down while we were there. Was upset about this, talked to the customer service at the front desk, they said they tried to call us to let us know. In fact, they did call, but it was the night before our stay, so at that point we already had the plans set. Was extremely frustrated about this because we would have rather just stayed at the regular resort with all the waterparks and not have to drive a mile in the start of winter when it's so freezing outside and we are all wet. They didn't offer anything when I complained about the issue.

Stayed November 2013, travelled with family

Great fun for all.
Check in was a little hectic because of it being such a large resort but they accommodated a room change to a closer park for our little one.
The room was clean and large for family of five and staff was professional and polite even with all the demands of thier guests.
Food is also reasonably priced but you have to remember your at a resort.
Will return in future.

Had a great spring vacation! The Dells are always fun and the Wilderness is a great place to stay! The location is great and the rooms are nice. It's the only place we stay when we go. Highly recommend staying here.

We stayed at Wilderness on the Lake for just one night. We arrived early and were able to use the water park. The front desk said they would call when our room was ready. We checked at 2 and 3pm. When we didn't hear by 4:15 we went to the front desk and they asked us "if we were ready yet to check in." Frustrating since we had been waiting a good 4 hours. None the less, our two-bedroom condo unit was great. A great view of the lake. Two fireplaces, four TV's a whirlpool jaccuzi in the screened in porch (which can be used year round) and a very comfortable atmosphere.

It was just my husband and me for this quick getaway - and the condo unit was really meant for 4-6 people. We enjoyed the stay.

Room Tip: They did a really good job of location and view on the lake side.

This was our first time at Wilderness and we had a wonderful time! The room was gorgeous and the lake view was beautiful. The water parks were nice, nothing over the top but a lot of fun. I did notice there was always a life guard in view no matter where you went and I liked that as a parent. The room, hotel & water parks were clean and well maintained. The only thing I did not like was the drive between the main hotel and the condos, it was only a 5 min drive but going back and forth for all the activities got to be a bit redundant. We had a great time overall and would stay here again!

Room Tip: The third floor is high enough up for quiet and privacy but gives an amazing view of the lake!

This was our 4th year at the Wilderness on the Lake. Shared 2-bedroom condo (4 adults, 4 kids) which make it into a good value. Great space for two families to share. Lots of common space, kids ran around like crazy and had a blast. Full size kitchen much appreciated as we made all of our meals there. In the past resort was super strict on not allowing food/drinks to be brought into indoor parks but we saw many people doing this and no one seemed to care (may be more allowed as we were there in non-peak, October season). View of lake was stunning!

Room Tip: We liked having room on same level as Cubby's Cove (indoor waterpark).

Two friends and I stayed in a two bedroom condo. Very spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed the four seasons room with jacuzzi & fireplace and spent a lot of time there. Fireplace in living room and TV in master bedroom didn't work but we didn't report it until we left as we didn't want to be disturbed. Noisy upstairs neighbors the last night we were there. View of lake obstructed - room overlooked the cove but we couldn't see it or the lake very well. Staff friendly. We didn't use any of the pools but they looked really nice. Fun to stay there once but pricey & if we return to the Dells probably won't stay there again.
