Wilderness Territory in Wisconsin Dells, WI consists of over 600 acres of land with a variety of lodging options and over 12 football fields of water fun. Called a “territory” because it encompasses the Wild Rock Golf Club, fine dining (including the popular Monk’s at the Wilderness and Sarento’s Italian Restaurant), and 1,163 different places to sleep—ranging from the Wilderness Hotel and Golf resort (the main resort), to Wilderness on the Lake (over looking scenic Lake Delton), Glacier Canyon Lodge, Vacation Villas, Cabins and New Frontier Condos. But wait…there’s more!
In total, there are 52 slides, 4 lazy rivers, 2 lazy lakes, 1 wave pool, 5 kiddy pools with play structures, 5 toddler pools, 3 lily pad walks, 9 hot tubs, and 8 activity pools within 8 indoor and outdoor water parks: Klondike Kavern, Wild WaterDome, Wild West, New Frontier, Lake Wilderness, Lost World, Cubby’s Cove (indoor and outdoor). Think about that monthly water bill!
Because our family is in the wonderful position of living about 45 minutes form the Wisconsin Dells, we’ve been enjoying day trips to The Dells all summer long.But now that the leaves are gone and turkeys are starting to panic, it’s time to move indoors and keep the bathing suits wet. As guests of Wilderness Territory, we gladly packed overnight bags and checked in to our room in the Glacier Canyon Lodge. Connected to the three indoor water parks by enclosed walkways (or by complimentary shuttle bus), we took our job of visiting Klondike Kavern, Wild West, and Wild Waterdome as seriously as possible while trying to reign in the kids. Each indoor water park held our attention, from the lazy river in the Klondike Kavern, to riding the surf in the Wild WaterDome, and finally with our youngest braving a trip down all of the toddler-friendly water slides in the Wild West Waterpark.
