This was a scouting trip for our family of four, looking for a place in the Dells to come back to year after year. With a two-year old and a four-year old, we are the ideal clientele for this property, with years of future return potential. While it is a nice propety, they are making the decision really hard for... More

We stayed in Wilderness on the Lake in the end of July 2014 in two-bedroom condo. So far we were very impressed with the Wilderness resort, as everything looked kind of upscale - for the Dells. I don't have a lot of experience with Dells, but I got an impression that Wilderness was indeed the nicest resort in the area.... More

My family has frequented the Wisconsin Dells for vacations for years, for multiple reasons: 1. It's far enough away that we feel like we're getting out of town, but not so far that it eats up too much vacation time for travelling to and from. 2. It's naturally beautiful. 3. well-planned water parks for parents and children. 4. Affordability. The... More

Our father-in-law got a 3 bedroom condo off of ebay for $900 for three nights. Definitely a bargin. The condo was very nice and there is a TON of things to do on this property. The highlight of our stay was taking a 5 minute ferry to the private water park off of the property that is only for Wilderness... More

We recently stayed at the Wilderness on the Lake, which is one of the many options for lodging at the Wilderness Resort in Wisconsin Dells. We stayed in a two bedroom suite with a nice kitchen and living area. With this room, and all at the wilderness I believe, you get waterpark passes included which is nice if you have... More

We just stayed at the wilderness on the lake with my two children and two senior parents. I specifically chose this resort because my parents are not able to participate in the water parks and I thought this would be a lovely spot for them to enjoy while my kids and I played. I know view doesn't matter for some,... More

We went with another family to this resort. We had five children along so it was actually a great spot with the ability to make our own food and the water park passes, to the entire resorts water parks included, a great perk! The kids loved it. We enjoyed being right on the lake and the large patio with grills... More

The room was exceptionally clean and the view it wonderful! I love that you can sit at the pool and relax and then take the boat over to the territory to do the wave pool and slides! Love that it is away from the craziness and so relaxing!!! PERFECT PLACE TO STAY!!!

This is the 2nd time we've stayed at Wilderness on the Lake. We like it better than the hotel and villas. I like being able to make all of our meals there. The master bedroom and bathroom is very spacious. The only thing that was annoying this time was hearing the air conditioner unit going on and off during the... More

We've been staying at the Wilderness for years, both in the main hotel and at rented villas. Wilderness on the Lake was by far our favorite so far! Our room had a wonderful all-season porch with comfy chairs and a beautiful view of the lake. It was so relaxing and we liked being away from the business of the main... More
