Wilderness Resort Favorites

I have a very specific, family fun post for you today!  It's a checklist of all the awesome things you can do at Wilderness Resort in Wisconsin Dells with your family.  I wanted to come up with a post that I could send to anyone wanting to plan a trip for their family.

We have been here several times and still have many things we have yet to get to do.  We have enjoyed the park all three kids before Leo could walk to now being an independent 2 year old.  It's a very family friendly place. We have visited in the Spring, Fall and Summer.  We loved them all, but it was really fun to be there in the Summer during the peak season with everything running at full steam.  The outdoor water parks are so cool.  You'll get tons of walking in everyday because it's a gigantic property. A few things are under renovation and set to reopen this Fall.

Wilderness Resort Must Do List:

1. Grab a coupon book at check in - all of those $1 off or 10% offs will really add up!

2. Eat breakfast at least once at Camp Social for their breakfast buffet

*3.  Wild Kids Club - Free and for purchase kid activities and crafts at the Kid's Club

4. Indoor Ropes Course - the course is above an arcade and best for older kids.

5. Arcades - they actually have pretty cute things in their claw machines.

6. Take Flight ride experience

7. Wild Abyss Indoor Mini Golf

*8. Check out every lazy river - they have two person floats with one side having a mesh bottom so you can bring along your smaller child with you.  Leo loved it!

9. Polka Dot Pots - paint your own pottery studio - they have lots of options of small things that are fun to paint, but won't take your kid forever.  They also guarantee things will be done by 11am the next day.

*10. Frozen Yogurt at Yukon Yogurt

*11. We loved all 8 water parks, but the Lost World, New Frontier and Lake Wilderness were our favorites.  There were tons of things for all three kids from toddler to almost 10 year olds to do.  Each water park has slides, climbing things, a smaller section for toddlers and lots of seating along with food options.

12. Take the trip over to Lake Wilderness.  They have an outdoor infinity pool next to Lake Delton where you'll feel like you're swimming on the lake.  It's amazing.

*13. If you have the option, stay on the Wyndham side of things for a quieter, roomier stay.

*14. Horse drawn wagon ride

15. Night swim - some water parks stay open until 10 pm

16. Get Nachos at the Tacolicious Food Truck at the Lost World Outdoor Water Park

17. Admire all the gorgeous flowers at every turn if you go in the Summer.  The property is so pretty!


*Really great for families traveling with babies or toddlers


We Can't Wait to Try:

1. Field's Fine Dining Steakhouse

2. Rent a Private Cabana at one of the outdoor water parks for the day

3. Zip line 

4. Play pool in the lobby

5. Try more local restaurants

6. Lost World Outdoor Mini Golf

7. Go to one of their outdoor movie nights

8. Go to the morning Ken-Ducky Derby race

9. Kevin golf their 18 hole golf course

10. Go on a horseback trail ride

11. Laser tag

12. Take the pontoon shuttle over to Lake Wilderness.  The shuttles closes at 4pm for the day.

13. Explore the trails around the property

14. Play BINGO at one of their bingo events

I hope that is helpful if you're thinking of planning at trip to Wilderness Resort.  They even have a location in Tennessee if that might be closer to home for you.  You can read even more details about the resort on their website:


I'll add in a few photos so you can see some of our favorite spots in action:


Infinity Pool at Lake Wilderness:

The kids loved watching the boats, jet skis and tubers fly by.

The property and trails all around the resort are beautiful.

We love this view for the week!

The kids really loved making things in the kid's club.  The big kids made their own stuffed animals and decided we all needed matching glitter tattoos.

You all know that I love plants!  I'm a total flower nerd.  And their huge flower pots were just stunning.  I couldn't believe the variety and colors they packed into each pot.  I'm inspired.

Wear comfy shoes because you will be walking a lot!!  If you've got little ones - definitely bring your stroller for them.

Be prepared to have SO MUCH FUN!!


That's a wrap on my Wilderness Resort posts.  Email me or comment anytime with any questions.  I'd love to help (

Happy weekend!  I hope you have fun plans with the people you love.
