Wilderness Lodge Wisconsin Dells
America’s Largest Water Park Resort
The Wilderness Lodge Wisconsin Dells has a great outdoor water park and now has three indoor water park areas with over 200,000 square feet of fun. With all the additions the Wilderness claims to be America’s largest water park resort. We spent a lot of time at the Wild Waterdome and the awesome wave pool named theThe Great Wave.
The rustic north woods theme greets you immediately in the golden glowing timber-framed lobby at the Wilderness Resort. The atmosphere was warm and inviting and created a relaxing feeling! The Wilderness Lodge Wisconsin Dells offers over 600 guest rooms, villas, cabins and condo’s.
The room we stayed in was equipped with 2 queen beds and a sleeper sofa, and we used all since we brought the kids and a few of their friends. Also, the room had a microwave, mini refrigerator, and television which were utilized by all of us. You can upgrade a room with a balcony, fireplace or whirlpool. Our room was very clean and the front desk delivered extra towels upon our request!

Indoor Water Park Fun
The Wilderness now has three distinct indoor water park areas with over 200,000 square feet. New to the Wilderness Lodge Wisconsin Dells is the Wild Waterdome. It has an awesome wave pool named theThe Great Wave. I personally road the waves several times with and without a tube. For indoors it is really amazing. Beth and I also road the water slide called the Mammoth a few times. It is a very large tube that seats four, and gives you quite a ride. They have several private cabanas for rent and two eating areas called Tommy Knockers and Survivors Bar and Grill. The part we liked the best was the wide open space in the dome. It has more of a beach feel with lounge chairs. Bring your sunglasses and suntan oil. The Dome is a new hi-tech glass that allows you to suntan all year round.
The Wild West Water Park, has over 70,000 square feet of fun! One of our favorites rides was the Fantastic Voyage, which is a five stories high family raft ride. There is also a lot of fun to be had at the Cannonball, and several other tube slides. This also has a smaller wave pool, and has a huge play area for the kids with a Wild West Bucket Dump. If your hungry or thirsty check out the Thirsty Buffalo and Grizzly‘s Grill.
The Klondike Kavern has 65,000 square feet of hands on activities including, body slides, lazy river and much more. This was the main water park the first time we visited the Wilderness Lodge Wisconsin Dells. We came with the entire family including Grandparents who enjoyed watching all the grandchildren ages, 2-20, race around the attractions. Our children were the three oldest grandchildren, so they set off with friends and cousins, while we retreated to the hot tub that was built partially inside and partially outside of the building. There is nothing more romantic than to sit in a hot tub watching and feeling the beautiful Wisconsin snowflakes fall around you. They have several good tube slides but the big boys go the best action from the Hurricane. Kid and family foods are available to eat at the Klondike Kanteen.
Outdoor Water Park Fun
The New Frontier outdoor water park at the Wilderness Lodge Wisconsin Dells consists of over 110,000 square feet of outdoor water fun. You have to check out the Gold Rush Tube Slide, a 400-foot tunnel slide that launches off of a 40-foot high enormous tower, you won’t be disappointed. There are also two other water slides, a 600-foot long lazy river, three pools with waterfalls, and Bear Foot Island and Toddler’s Cove for the youngsters to play in.
Also, if you get hungry while in New Frontier, no need to worry. Both the Coyote Cafe and the Racoon Saloon offer a wide variety of food and drinks and are right there for your convenience.
Just Plain Fun
Need a break, getting water logged? The Wilderness Lodge Wisconsin Dells offers a scheduled activities and events for the entire family. For the smaller ones try out the Polka Dot Pots (pottery), braiding, and caricatures. For bigger fun let all the kids try out Ok Corral Lazer Tag, or the 3-story Dodge‘em City or the 4-story Timberland Playhouse or the Northern Lights Arcade. You just simply will not believe how large these fun areas are until you see them. Our kids loved them all.
Great Food at the Wilderness
And, it’s all right at your fingertips! Sarento’s is a very family friendly Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria located near the Wilderness Lodge Wisconsin Dells, and a free shuttle service from the resort will drop you there. We were so happy to have made the choice to eat at Sarento’s. You feel as though you are dining in the Tuscan Valley!
The restaurant is beautifully decorated in hand painted murals of Italy and the rich look of the cherry wood is impressive. It is a relaxed, casual atmosphere and the boys ordered a pepperoni pizza and garlic cheese bread, which they said was one of the best pizza’s they’ve ever had! I ordered a Tuscan salad and lasagna and it was delicious. Next visit we will eat in “the wine cellar,” a little more of a fine dining experience!
Field’s is a tradition in the Dells, specializing in steak, shrimp and fine dining. There is a great kids menu and most of their foods are cooked in a wood burning oven! The stone hearth fireplace is beautiful and the restaurant has four private dining rooms, a main dining room, and a atrium. We loved the prairie style, and the Frank Lloyd Wright influenced architecture. The atmosphere and food is worth the trip and has been given excellent reviews as the one of the best restaurants in the Dells. They open at 4:30 pm and reservations are suggested. This can be done through the hotel.
The Wild Canyon Café is also near the lobby and serves up breakfast, lunch and dinner, in a gold mine setting. The Thirsty Buffalo Saloon is located in the Wild West park area and is very family friendly, and adults will definitely enjoy Giddy UP & Tommy Knockers, which specialize in appetizers and drinks.
Activities are planned to meet the needs and wants of the kids, but parents can join in on jewelry making, t-shirt coloring, tie dying, bingo, pottery painting and much more. Check in with the front desk for a list of these great weekly activities.
