This place is full of fun things to do, or just escape and relax. We had a cabin on lake that was just perfect. Décor and location made us just want to stay in and enjoy, but managed to enjoy other activities also. This was our first time in area and can say enough good things about Big Cedar. Everyone,...

This resort is first class and well worth the trip! Unbelievable experience which is hard to explain in words. You have to experience for yourself. We stayed in one of the cabins which was very nice and relaxing. I have to say the staff no matter where you went were exceptional and very friendly. Food was fantastic at all the... More

This was my first trip to Big Cedar and it did not disappoint. From the moment we arrived we felt like the most important couple on the property. There is plenty to do just staying on property. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet at the Devils Pool restaurant so much we went again the next morning. The staff on property was... More

This place is great. We stayed in the Falls Lodge. The room was larger than my first apartment. The rooms are all decorated rustic but far from that comfort. The king size bed and pillows were very comfortable with a down comforter. We have a 3rd level room with a balcony with 2 rocking chairs where you could enjoy this... More

My husband and I stayed here for our 30th wedding anniversary and rented a Lakeside cabin. It was so beautiful, peaceful and quiet. The staff is so friendly and ready to assist you. We took a carriage ride around the property and then on to Top of the Rock for the ride through the caverns and then to dinner. The... More

Big Cedar Lodge is an amazing, luxury wilderness experience built by Johnny Morris of Bass Pro Shops fame about an hour south of Springfield, Missouri. Rustic, but very well appointed, you are away in a beautiful hotel and still surrounded by the closeness of nature. There are many different lodge buildings and levels of rooms. A shuttle transports you from... More

We have been going to Big Cedar every couple of years since we were newlyweds. We have now been married 11 years and have 3 little ones 5 and under. It is such a wonderful spot to come as a couple and as a family, so much to do either way. Room service at your private log cabin (the lodges... More

We went to Big Cedar for our 25th wedding anniversary and it was gorgeous. We loved it. Staff was friendly and their were tons of activities to do without ever leaving the grounds. I highly recommend it.

Just returned home from here with my spouse and son, we left a day early even though we still had to pay for the last night. The first night we checked in we had the horrible Thunderhead fishing cabin which is about a mile away from the main desk and all the pools and things to do, you are in... More
