Drove 6 hours here to a get a taste of the wild and we got just that. Very beautiful place! Cabin was clean and roomy for my family and I. Lots to do around! Close shopping for anything we needed. Great fishing. Great mushroom picking. The owner John was very kind and helpful. Would definitely come back and recommend anyone... More

Our family has been coming here every summer for several years now. You can't find another resort that comes with the use of a pontoon for price. The fishing is GREAT and it is a very relaxing get- away. There are many fun day trip opportunities around the area to explore as well. John, the owner, is wonderful and a... More

It should be a red flag when a resort has availability at the height of summer! We were looking for a resort for a last minute summer getaway when we stumbled upon Wilderness Haven's websites. The pictures looked good. Reviews were mixed, but we figured we would give it a try. The cabins look great from the outside and the... More

My family has been visiting Wilderness Haven Resort for the last 15 years. Just outside of Hayward, you are nestled in a peaceful retreat, where you can make your vacation what you want it to be. Maybe you want to use one of the available pontoon boats to fish, or relax on the lake. You might want to take a... More

Our family stayed in the large cabin for a week. We left early, it was just not good. Cabin was very dusty and had spiderwebs all over. It smelled horribly musty, so bad we bought room deodorizers to try to get rid of the smell. Mouse poop along kitchen area and in toaster every morning. This was even after we... More

Rustic cabins nestled in a beautiful area just outside of Hayward, Wilderness Haven is the perfect "get away from it all" resort. Each cabin has a pontoon boat available which is a bonus. We shared a pontoon boat with another family which wasn't a problem, but if you are planning on spending most of your time on the lake, you... More

Conveniently located near Hayward. As you arrive at the resort, you are greeted with piles of debris. Cabins are rustic at best with their glory days long behind them. Toilet leaked, microwave did not work, gap in the door let in the abundant bug, beds are very small, wifi did not work. Fishing was great, but the pontoons were well... More

Love the cabins! John is the best! We have been coming here for several years now. John is so accommodating and one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Our family chooses this place over any other. This is where family memories are made folks. Enjoy!

Our small family was looking for a cabin near Hayward for a quick vacation. We ended up at Wilderness Haven and really had a great time. John, the owner, was super friendly and helpful. The cabin was very cozy and had great 1940's ambience. All in all, it was really a memorable little trip that we thoroughly enjoyed.
