We are frequent flyers at WOTL, returning many times over the last several years. So much fun for adults to the grandkids. I've read some of the other comments and I would say if you don't want to deal with crowds, then don't come when everyone else wants to come. As far as code browns, they can't control Mother Nature.... More

My two sons and their families (9 of us altogether) recently spent our 5th stay here, staying in a 3-bedroom condo. We go every year in January or February to get away from the Wisconsin weather, while still in Wisconsin. The master bedroom (king bed) suite is enormous with a huge bathroom with a dual-head shower. The sliding door to... More

What a great stay we had before the holidays.Stayed in the 2 bedroom condo. There were 6 adults and 2 small children,we had plenty of room for all. The bedrooms were plenty roomy and the bathrooms were the same.(liked the dual shower in the master bath) The view was great and the separate whirlpool room with fireplace and relaxation area...

Went here over the weekend for a family trip, stayed one night in a villa suite. The rooms are great, nice woodland style decor, very spacious and great for the whole family. They even have a hot tub in the bathroom and two balconies. This is the hotel's only upside. The check-in process is long and tedious. They take a... More

We go here every year right before school starts. Their rooms are great. We recently started renting a condo. Those are FABULOUS!!! Perfect for families and for multiple families. Their restaurant is also good. We had their breakfast buffet and it was good and a decent price. I like that only guests of the Wilderness can go to their water... More

We chose a two bedroom condo at the lake for our annual trip to the dells. We have two families who go, so it was important to us to be able to have a two bedroom condo with kitchen. This worked out well. The room was a little dated, and fairly dark (especially in the bathrooms), but the common area... More

My family and I have been coming to Wilderness on the Lake for the past 10 years, usually during June but occasionally we go during January for a weekend getaway. We love the 2 bedroom condos with fireplaces, whirlpool, and full kitchen. The only problem we had recently was housekeeping not bringing by the bedding for the pullout bed when... More

We visit the dells every year with a large family & love the cabins & condos! My only negative comment would be the customer service.. After years of visiting (prob over a dozen times) I asked for a discount of some sort since all of our stays combined probably could've bought our own condo?! I was told absolutely not since...

Really had a blast and all my family from the youngest to the oldest enjoyed their stay. We really hope to return in the near future. We really had a great time and the only compliant from my family is why I didn't book more days. LOL

Fantastic 3 bedroom suite with shuttle service to all the Wilderness indoor water parks. My son, daughter, wife and grandkids loved this place last year and enjoyed it just as much this year. That is a testament to how nice this place is when you enjoy it year after year. Right on the lake with great views from our room.... More
