Wilderness Territory Legacy
Dating back to the late 1800’s, Oliver “OP” Helland recognized the family vacation potential of the Dells’ area and was instrumental in organizing seasonal sightseeing boat tours along the Wisconsin River – founding the Riverview Boat Line in 1920. Soon after, the Wisconsin Dells became recognized as a popular vacation destination. Over the past 12 years the Lucke’s and Helland’s continued to develop premier water park resorts. The success of the Wilderness Territory developments in the Wisconsin Dells has paved the path for a one-of a kind family vacation getaway that not only serves its guests and visitors but also its owners.
