We really like the wilderness, we have stayed many times. Rooms are always clean, pools are always clean. The one thing I enjoy is there are 4 indoor pool areas and only wilderness guests can go therefore I don't feel they get as crowded as some other indoor water parks. We have only been there once in the summer time...

We love this place and is our go to, family, winter vacation spot every year, for the past 7 years. It is amazing fun! A very clean environment, nice helpful staff, great food, fun activities, but we had a bad experience on our last trip 3 days ago with our skin burning and itching and still is now! That has...

We went here in the summer 5 1/2 years ago and we enjoyed it very much. So we returned this time for 2 nights in the winter, We noticed some changes, some good, and some a little disappointing. The rooms were decent, beds were comfortable, good wifi connection, and decent water pressure in the showers. We were on the 3rd...

We have been to many, many indoor and outdoor waterparks -- my kids love them. My kids are 8 and 13 now - -so my review is definitely geared toward kids that are a bit more independent. Positives: Clean, big wave pool, fun slides. Negatives: Crowded, waterpark areas are very spread out, limited food options on property. Overall, I think...

First time staying at the Wilderness. It was PACKED, considering the holidays were officially over, but we had a blast nonetheless. The Water Dome def made us miss the ocean and the real breezy waves, but for Winter Wisconsin, it will do. My ten and eight year old loved loved loved the huge arcade, seriously one of the best we've...

My fiance and I spent a night in the Dells back in September. We have stayed just about everywhere. We chose the Wilderness for the multiple waterparks since as we get older some of the smaller waterparks aren't so fun for us anymore. Check in was a bit rough. We arrived early- hoping to check in early so that we...

We stayed wed-sun in a condo, (glacier wyndham side) we had a very good time, we come up every year. Check in was good but it was a Wednesday afternoon. I noticed friday afternoon the check in had quite a line. Our group consisted of 5 adults and 3 children. All of the resort staff we talked to was very...

We were really looking forward to a quick overnight in the Dells. Have been here at the Wilderness 3 or 4 times previously over the years and it was fun. I have to say they were very accommodating when I called to make reservation and explained we could only do 1 night (usually require 2 night stay on weekends). I...

I was hoping for a nice break, away from the norm, with high expectations. Wasn't the best I've been to. I guess I'm a not used to going to an indoor water park. Living in England, more used to going to to nice beaches around Europe. May have been a little different during the summer (warmer) season. As there are...
