#4 of 12 in Theme Parks in Wisconsin Dells
Wilderness Resort features eight water parks. Spread across more than 240 hectares (600 acres) of woodland, the resort offers 46,000 sq m (500,000 sq ft) of water parks--four indoor and four outdoor. Thrill seekers will like rides such as the hurricane and extreme body slides, but you'll also find slower-moving attractions. Try out an array of arcades and 3-D attractions. The site offers a championship golf course as well as miniature golf courses. Or reserve a horse-drawn wagon tour. Don't miss the 18 m (60 ft) high zipline that spans six towers and overlooks a canyon.

  • Decided to try the wilderness after multiple visits to both Kalahari and a hula Vista over the years. Overall older and less “upkeep” of both rooms and parks. With 3 different water parks it was very ...  more »
  • It should be noted that my husband and I have been to the Wilderness 3 times, and every single one of those times was in the off season and it’s still the best resort in the Dells. The first time we s...  more »
  • Visited on August 30. I like that this is for resort guests only. The Hurricane water slide. Located in Klondike Kavern. Find this one and enjoy a different thrill of a water slide. I've never experie...  more »

  • Stayed at this hotel with my daughter's basketball team. The rooms were clean and the water parks were great! The staff is super accommodating! Two of the dad's on the trip (named Bob and Tom) wanted to plan a Father-Father Dance at the last second - the hostess dropped everything she was doing and helped them book a banquet room. Bob and Tom were the only people who attended the dance - but they said it was a blast!!
  • My husband and I brought our two children here for a long Memorial Day weekend and had a great time! We stayed at the Wilderness hotel and found it to be a great location for visiting the waterparks. We were right in the middle of everything and there is a ton of stuff to do! This is of course a touristy resort so food and activities are a bit pricey but not more than expected. There were a lot of people here but not so many to make it feel overly crowded and everywhere we went in the resort the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Every water park we went to had a great lifeguard to swimmer ratio and they were all very attentive and professional. The hotel room we stayed in was fairly basic but it was very clean and perfect for what we needed since we didn't spend a lot of time in it. This was our first time at Wilderness and if we are ever in this area again I would definitely stay here again!
  • What a place to stay!!! So much to do in one place! You never have to leave! They have great deals on meals that can be delivered to your room or pool side if you choose. They had an unlimited pass when we were there for all to get into like 5 or 6 things for unlimited amounts of times, otherwise you have to pay each time. We got our money's worth just in the go carts- which I must add are INDOORS!!! Great cook season place to stay and it looks to be a really cool place to stay in the summer with the outdoor water parks. There are 8 total water parks- 4 inside and 4 outdoors.
  • Been here three times, always a great experience. It's our mini vacation destination. They have everything you need, and stuff you didn't think you needed. In my opinion, it's much better than the Kalahari and the outside parks make it comparable to a mini Noah's Ark.
  • We had a great time staying at the wilderness. We had a 2 bedroom villa, it was super spacious and clean. Nice view from the back, you had a patio on the first level and two balconies on the second level. They were quiet and fairly private. The set up for the waterpark is really good, lots of options for all age ranges.
