5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed in the hotel area and thanks to reviewers on trip advisor we called ahead and reserved our room on the third floor. As reviewers have said, the second floor is the busiest and is the most noisy, and we found that also true. Great sleep every night on the third floor. My husband and I went and are... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and definitely could have stayed for more and been busy with new activities. We focused on the water parks, arcade, go carts and restaurants. Everything was great and the food was a very pleasant surprise. The buffet had a great variety including red snapper which was not over cooked. The rooms were comfortable and... More

We stayed at the Wilderness (Glacier Canyon) Aug17-21, 2015 and had a great time. Kids were 7, 4 & 3 which was a little young but we were excited to get started with our tradition. Ideally it would be nice to be near the walkway over to the other waterparks and the main lodge, but we were near the end... More

We chose the 4 bedroom condos and it was perfect for our family of 10. The advantage of having indoor and outdoor water parks eliminated the worry about the weather. We enjoyed being about to walk outside and let the kids play in the grass or having a cup of coffee in the screened in porch in the early morning... More

2015 was our 4th visit to the Wilderness and it is by far, our favorite resort in the Dells. My criticism is still the same; resort pricing. You can stay at this very nice resort and have a great time without breaking the bank IF you plan ahead and bring your own supplies, such as food and drink. If you... More

It was our end-of-the-summer family vacation and I had decided to choose The Wilderness Territory Hotel (after looking at numerous other places). Our experience was absolutely wonderful at The Wilderness!! The waterparks, staff, food, hotel, hotel room, etc. was everything I was expecting and more!! There are a total of 8 waterparks (inside and outside) - and 6 of them... More

We stayed in a cabin on the golf course. Excellent set up for our family vacation - there were 6 adults and 5 children ranging from 10 - 14. Shuttle service to water parks very efficient, just a phone call away. Indoor water parks great on the rainy days and outdoor perfect for the sunny days. Variety of water activities... More

Hotel room accommodations were fine. Resort complex is quite large which provides for a good deal of entertainment but signage throughout the complex was very poor! Wasted a good deal of time trying to move between waterparks and other entertainment. Hotel staff not particularly helpful as many struggled to understand English. Resort flyers provided at check in were of no... More

We were looking at the Dells for a weekend getaway with our nephews, ages 10 and 13. After a little research on trip advisor we decided on the Wilderness Resort. We had visited the Dells a few years ago with them during Spring Break and had stayed at Chula Vista in a 3 bedroom condo, which was great but Wilderness... More

The wilderness has everything. There are 6 or 7 water parks on site, both indoor and outdoor. They are all connected by skywalks. You never have to leave!!! We rented a 2-bed, 2-bath condo in Glacier Lodge and brought food for the long weekend. There were plates and and everything, full fridge, stove snd dishwasher. It was perfect. The room... More
