This is probably the 5th time staying at the Wilderness. We go to the Dells every year and have stayed at the villas and wingate part but this wilderness on the lake was probably the best. Their outside infinity pool was excellent! We have gone different times during the year and if we go in the summer again will definitely stay here. Pros: Wilderness is definitely the biggest water park/resort in the Dells (we've stayed in the other big ones as well). Shuttle service to the other pools/attractions were fast. Rooms were very roomy and clean. What a beautiful view of Lake Delton. Cons: we tried going on the water shuttle or taxi but couldn't. Their sign says they close at 8pm. We got down there at 7:44pm and the driver was packing up. I asked him nicely "are you closing shop?" He said "Yeah we're done." No other explanation whatsoever. Well if you have kids and had their heart set on something you know how it is to break it to them we can't do it anymore. We went to the lobby to get the regular shuttle and I asked the clerk what was the deal with that. She explained that boats aren't allowed to make any wakes after 8 pm. Ok great that explains it- but that somewhat rude driver should've told us that right? And maybe they should change their signs to "close at 7:30 pm. Anyway no big deal- it is a free service, besides dissapointing the kiddies no harm done. We didn't find out until the next morning at breakfast time that we had no forks in the kitchen and called the desk, housekeeping came by with forks about 30 min. later. I had already went to the store and bought plastic ones by the time they came back. oh well. Other than that had a GREAT time!
