Wilderness Hotel and Golf Resort Review: If you are looking for a getaway that is fun for all ages, Wisconsin Dells is the place to go. After surveying our Facebook friends on the best place to stay in WD the majority said the Wilderness.
We booked a 3 bedroom frontier condo and had more than enough room for two families (7 people.) The bedrooms were all very spacious. It has a fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, screened in porch and all the comforts of your own home.
The property consists of 600+ acres, the Wilderness Resort located in Wisconsin Dells is home to three amazing waterpark resorts: Wilderness Hotel & Golf Resort, Wilderness on the Lake and Glacier Canyon Lodge. Together, these properties make up America’s largest waterpark resort, offering 4 indoor and 4 outdoor waterparks totaling more than 500,000 square feet all reserved exclusively for Wilderness Resort guests. There is always something more to explore at the Wilderness.
Checking-In: The check in process was seamless. They had multiple windows available, so even though we arrived right at check-in time there was no wait. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the facility and went over all the amenities of the resort on the maps as well as directions to our condo. The check in packet includes coupons for many of the local eateries as well as a free coupon book.
Because the property is so big there are just too many outdoor and indoor waterparks to mention. What we can say is that each and every day you can visit a different one on the property. Most of the amenities including the waterparks are exclusively for hotel guests, so they are not nearly as crowded as many of the other resorts and you don’t have to wait in line for very long.
Indoor Waterparks: The indoor waterparks are great for families of all ages. They have activities for the littlest to biggest. The children’s areas are very well designed with small slides for the little ones all the way up to big curly slides for the bigger kids. The lifeguard staff was very focused and attentive. They not only have staff in the water areas, but also patrolling the outer areas. They are very courteous and willing to help when they see someone with an injury or in our case an unexpected bloody nose.
