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

We had a pontoon boat to fish whenever we wanted(Big bonus), Sitting on the cabin deck was absolutely stunning, A full view of the lake and surrounding forest.

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.

My wife and I just returned from a wonderful extended weekend at Wilderness Haven. John is a super nice guy and an extremely passionate resort owner. He made us feel at home from the minute we arrived. As an added bonus, John is extremely knowledgeable on all topics related to the outdoors and is happy to share this knowledge with... More

My husband and I were looking for a quiet, natural setting to spend a week. We found it! We stayed in a small, one bedroom cabin. It has been very comfortable, has a nice deck facing the lake, a small kitchen and a very reasonable bathroom. The cabin rental also came with a pontoon boat. From the first night here... More
