We have not stayed at Wilderness Presidential but have friends who have. They loved it! My older boys were lifeguards there during the summer of 2020. Wilderness Presidential actually had swimming pools open during Covid-19 Summer 2020. We have only participated in the Ropes Course & Archery. Our kids had a great time. We are looking forward to trying their Escape Room.
