We have stayed at the Wilderness about 6-8 times over the past several years and the last 2 visits were terrible. On our most recent visit, the room next to us was so loud we could not sleep. The walls were paper thin and we could hear everything from the room next door. A couple other families that were travelling... More

My family and I have visited the dells on numerous occasions, but I have to say staying in the wilderness cabins were the best time yet. They were beautiful and clean and provided more than enough for my family needs. The staff was great and my family and I are planning to make this a yearly tradition now, so thank... More

The past 2 winters this has the perfect winter getaway from the cold Wisconsin winters. Each time we spent one night in the Glacier Canyon Lodge. The indoor waterparks are great for our young children - 2 and 6 this past winter. Glacier Canyon Lodge has great rooms - very large and with the kitchen we are able to make... More

I would recommend staying at one of the cabins. They were wonderful.Other than our first night there due to another cabin (they were fighting, and we did hear the following day that they were ejected from the place) we had a really great time. The staff was great. We had a problem with our water heater and called the front... More

We stayed in the 3bd Cabin. It was wonderful. Very clean and it was a little small for our taste but it had everything we needed. Clean and the beds were comfy. It was nice to be able to cook a meal instead of spending hundreds on eating out daily. The waterparks were very nice and clean. They have a... More

Definitely a lot of choices for different water parks. We encountered two engaging and helpful staff members out of the 15+ we interacted with. We staying in the Frontier condos. The maintenance staff would pick up the trash with their music blaring and definitely going over the posted speed limits. This consistently woke our grandchildren from naps and made it... More

So many different activities and waterparks to attend here on the Wilderness campus. Both our daughters love the Wave Pool and the body and tube water slides. Lots to do for kids of all ages. We stay here for a weekend every year or two. A couple good restaurants on site and more within walking distance (Monk's and Marley's). Rooms... More

We have stayed here multiple times. The hotel is clean. Pools are clean and fun. On Labor Day, it was very very full and we weren't able to check in until the last possible minute. The staff is helpful.

My family and I just returned from the Wilderness and we were impressed overall. I would just like to mention that when we ate at the Wild Canyon Cafe there was a significant issue with their tipping practice. On the bottom of the receipt they put for your convenience the calculated tip amounts for 15,20,25 and 30 percent gratuity. I... More

Overall an OK stay. Check in took about 45 minutes, at about 7pm on a Friday night. I had called in our reservation, hoping to be able to get the veteran's discount on a night not advertised online. They wouldn't honor that, and they wouldn't even give a 10 or 15% off. Disappointing, but it is what it is. The... More
