“Awesome Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

I originally chose this resort for a girl's weekend getaway, but after a change in plans, I ended up going with my family (husband and 5 year old son). The minute we drove into the resort we knew we had picked the perfect location for our Dells getaway. We were given cabin 23 which is a "one unit" and an end unit. It was located next to the swimming pool. Parking was a piece of cake and we were able to quickly settle into our room. The one unit consists of a kitchenette, dining room table, full bath, two full sized beds and a couch. We loved being able to bring our own food and beverages and not have to rely on eating out for every single meal as we would have had to do at one of the larger resorts. We had an afternoon available to go to the beach and swim in the river- my son absolutely loved it. The beach was clean and the grounds were well maintained. We were amazed at how quiet it was in our room despite the resort being very obviously full and busy. We were within just a couple miles of all the attractions we had planned on visiting and had just a perfect vacation. The staff was super friendly and we enjoyed our dinner out at the Pub & Grub. The only negative, and this is a stretch, was that the beds were pretty uncomfortable- we woke up with stiff backs every day and the pillows were pretty flat and lifeless. Easy solution- bring your own pillows next time!

We enjoyed our stay at Rivers Edge so much and plan on coming back for many years to come!

Room Tip: If you like the size of the one unit, request room number 23 on the end! Pretty view of the river, q...

We went hear for tubing. They take you and drop you off a few miles down the river. We tied our tubes together and headed down the river.....well at least that is what we thought. We ended up farther back than where we started. It is a lot of paddling and there are tourist boats constantly coming by that provide a wake. Hold on....but its fun. The scenery is amazing and is somewhat relaxing.....at least when you are floating along. Take a cooler.....there are some beaches that you can stop at along the way.

My family have been staying at rivers edge for several years now. there's about 14 people in our family that go. Even before we stayed here we always went to their bait shop. The owner's and staff have been great. We couldn't of asked for it to be any better. They would even talk and interact with the little ones in our family and as a parent that means a lot. And as far as the unhappy rude tube riders go. You have to have patience. Its a very popular place and they are very busy. So if you don't have patience then Wisconsin Dells isn't a place for your group. I suggest that you purchase your own tubs and go to your local river. But i don't believe they were rude, called name, and swore. Thanks again to the Rivers Edge owners and staff for giving my family such a great place to spend time together at. Looking forward to seeing you all in a few months. The Hines family

Room Tip: The entire place is great. I can't choose just one room. I would recommend that you look at thei...

This was an interesting place to go tubing. They take you up the river and drop you off and you're in the middle of a well used portion of the river. With water levels low, there was very little movement. We had to paddle the entire time to get anywhere. It was a fun and scenic area to be in, but the fact that we weren't moving without constant effort wasn't ideal (though out of anyone's control). Would love to try again when water levels are higher...

Family owned Resort with Full Service Restaurant, Bar & Bait Shop. Amenities offered are numerous!! Rentals for Pontoons, Fishing Boats, Tubing, Boat Dock, etc....... So much to do just on the property alone....a true Resort athmosphere! Owners are truly caring, accommodating and professional. We fish the Wisconsin River more than 25 weekends out of the year. If we are not camping in nearby State Parks there is no question where we are....and that is Rivers Edge!! A must try and a "stellar" place! I guarantee you will be a returning guest once you experience this Gem!!

A last minute decision for a weekend getaway led me to Dionne at Rivers Edge. We were in a wonderful cabin. Warm and cozy doesn't do it justice. The kitchen has everything supplied for you, but no need to cook.....the wonderful Pub and Grub was a short walk from the cabin. The food has never disappointed us. Sitting under the 100 year old oak tree in the bar while watching fish swim by in one of the aquariums gave new meaning to a relaxing with a view. Every one was warm and friendly, so we are already trying to plan another sneak away so we can try one of the units over looking the river.

A small group of guys on a fishing trip the last week of September could not have found a better spot. Clean cabin with nice tv to watch the game and good table to enjoy games of chance. Plenty of space for 4 guys to enjoy the trip. The fishing was good as was the food at the bar.

Room Tip: The cabins across the road have good space for parking and sitting outside
