“Absoutly Amazing”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

My husband and I went for Valentines Day and was the best decision ever made. The room (we had 2 bedroom condo) originally is over $400 a night but they had a special and got the room for $210-what a steal. The room was clean, bed was comfortable and amenities were awesome. We could use all of the waterparks but the only downfall of that was it was in the middle of winter and had to catch a shuttle to go to the different parks, besides standing outside or on a cold floor in a lobby of one of the hotels, you had to walk through the cold air soaking wet. I will definately be back here but maybe not in the dead of winter, just not convenient.

Room Tip: Go in warmer weather or stay at wilderness hotel during the winter

Loved our stay there. 2 bedroom condo with lake view. Reasonably priced. Well maintained. Full kitchen. 2 fireplaces. Jacuzzi. Tons of room. Will definitely return for a longer stay. Only drawback was food choices. Had to leave the grounds for a variety but did not have to go far

We stayed May 16-18th, 2014. Two adults, 3 kids in tow. Check in time was at 4, we got there around 7 and it was crazy busy, so I would recommend checking in earlier. I guess you can check in earlier before 4 but can't get to your room but can use all the pool facilities etc. I wish I would've known that. ;) It's definitely a place for family fun. We got to our room which was just as described. We literally had no complaints. We got the Double suite wet bar which was perfect for us. It had a semi split wall which the older two were on the other side of with the pull out couch and other tv, while we had the other side with a 7 month old baby.

Our plan was to stay at the hotel all weekend. We went to the arcade that first night and had a blast. ATM took a long time to work for us tho in the arcade area. People were rope climbing above us which was neat.......next day was the day we would hit up all the indoor waterparks. We went to one in the morning which had no one there. Score! Then we went to the 2nd one, had lunch there which really wasn't worth the money but it's food and filled up us. Kids went swimming, that was packed. (Had lazy river). Ate dinner at the buffet place, Wild Canyon Cafe I believe was the name. Hubby didn't think it was worth it, the kids and I were satisfied.

Lastly that night we went to the waterpark with the wave pool. WE HAD A BLAST! Baby and Daddy stayed and watched, but the kids and I had so much fun!

Everything was good there. I would recommend this place again and again.

WOW! This place is awesome. The indoor waterpark has warm water. It may be small but tons of fun. It's better suited for younger children. The outside has an infinity pool and whirlpool. You also have a small beach area and the there is a large area with propane grills for guest use. This place is an awesome place to get away from all the hype. It is tranquil and yet fun. We have been staying at the wilderness for 4 years and this is the first time that we stayed at the lake. It is awesome. 2 bedroom condos are excellent.

Room Tip: Try not to get a room by the grills. It can get a bit noisy outside your room.

I stay here about 2 or 3 times a year. Its the best for the money in the dells. Granted you will not be at the main resort but its a 5 min drive or a shuttle ride. Wilderness has the best and most to offer in the dells. I stay at Kalahari to but the only thing about them is the flow rider in the waterpark that no one else has, their wave pool is tiny. Although Chula vista water park is the smallest. Wilderness on the lake has a small indoor water park but it is nice and secluded and rooms are big and clean. Also in the 2 bdrm the double queen room has a tub higher than any normal one so becarful of getting out of it, had two people fall.

Room Tip: 1st floor by the grills

A few positives:

1. As an adult group traveling without kids this place is great! There is a smaller indoor water park area which usually has families with young children but the indoor/outdoor hot tub typically has plenty of room for adults to enjoy. This might not be true in the summer but in the cooler spring and fall months it's great!

2. Our room was clean and comfortable and spacious. I LOVE how dark the bedrooms get - makes sleeping in really easy!

3. All of the staff we encountered at the hotel were friendly and helpful and responded to our needs quickly.

4. Love, love, love the shuttle to and from the casino!


A few negatives:

1. Bed sheets for the pull out couch did not fit the mattress. When asked for new sheets - no fitted sheet was provided.

2. Wifi access through the hotel did not work. Would connect and then immediately disconnect. Even a 4G signal was hard to get but this might have been because we were in a room on the lower level.

One HUGE positive:

An hour after checking out I realized I left my iPod on the fireplace mantle. I called the hotel and initially was directed to the general lost and found number that was a recording. I called back and asked to talk to someone directly at the hotel. The front desk employee was an ENORMOUS help and ended up finding the housekeeper who cleaned the room and she brought it back up to the front desk! I was so relieved and so thankful to the staff who helped me!

Room Tip: We always ask for a room facing the lake and it is a great view. Asking for a lower level room provi...
