Almost in the middle of nowhere, there is this resort with great rooms, great golf, a nice little casino, a marina to get you on the lake with whatever you need, an indoor pool, and restaurants that serve wonderful food. What more could you want? Oh, how about a staff that is absolutely outstanding - friendly beyond the definition of... More

The property was easy to find, though it was not easy to find handicapped parking. I think that the elderly casino customers use the handicapped parking in front of the hotel lobby, so I had to drop my mother off and then find parking a bit of a walk away, but the weather was fine, so I didn't mind a...

Good afternoon: Thank you for your detailed review regarding your recent stay. Thanks for pointing our our shortcomings when it comes to signage as that has been an ongoing issue that we are working on. Thanks also for recognizing our attempts to keep the air in our casino as that is something we strive to do for our nonsmoking guests.... More

We went here for the casino, but the resort property looked beautiful. There would be a number of great things available to resort guests and or owners. As indicated we went to gamble. They do not have any table games other than blackjack. There are a lot of small denomination slot machines if that is of interest. If you're looking... More

High quality rooms with comfortable ambiance. Beds are comfy. Book your room in the new wing and enjoy the views from your balcony. The stay and play rates are great! If you go right after Labor Day nothing is crowded so that's a bonus. Eat at the golf club restaurant for an amazing supper and cocktails.

We stayed here last winter for a hockey tournament one night. We got a little bigger room that fit our family of five fine for one night. Pool area sufficed. No complimentary breakfast. We never stepped into the casino. Tried to get a coffee from their coffee shop and was unimpressed how they had one person working on a Sunday... More

The staff is great. We had a good time. He loved the Wilderness golf course. Didn't do the casino. Plenty of others thing to do. Great trails to walk and enjoy the great north. We will be going back soon. My boyfriend thought the way he was treated at The Wilderness was top notch.

Long gravel sites with a fairly roomy space in between coaches. This resort has alot to offer, including several places to eat. We ate at the... More

We go here often as it's fun to go gamble for a few hours; especially when the weather is not great. We like that even though there are new machines, they keep some of the "old school" machines as those are fun to play too. The all you can eat crab buffet was great and they keep bringing out hot,...
