We stayed here for a few days and loved every minute of it. This was a fun place to take the kids on our vacation before school starts. The grounds were immaculate, and there was plenty to do. We really enjoyed all of the fun activities, and the staff was friendly at every turn. We can't wait to go back... More

We had a two-bedroom timeshare condo. It was spacious, comfortable and well decorated. The pools are excellent and the ammenities at neighboring Big Cedar Lodge are fun and well-tailored to families with kids. I read other reviews about noise and it was a little noisy, but really not that bad. It's like living in an apartment building. I was surprised... More

Our family stayed at Wilderness Big Cedar Club on Aug., 8th - 10th, 2014 and had a wonderful time. The view was spectacular, and staff were willing to help with any questions we had. There was shopping, miniature golf, swimming....something for everyone. I would highly recommend Big Cedar for a great time.

My husband first visited Big Cedar 7 yrs ago and since that time, we've been coming back here at least 2-3x per year with family & friends. There is something for everyone. Two mini-golf courses, 4+ pools & hot tubs, 3 gyms, shuffleboard, resturants, coffee shop, gift shop, nightly entertainment for adults and kids including marshmellow roasts around the camp... More

This place is beautiful, however their snarky shuttle drivers, rude guest relation people, and lack of advertised amenities made our stay below average. We have been here many times, and this time was the worst customer service I've experienced.

We spent almost a week with our daughter and her 8 year old twins. We rented a two bedroom, two bathroom modern cabin with kitchen, W/D, etc. It was great and reasonably priced! I would not buy a time share but renting one from owner is great. They share all facilities with Big Cedar Lodge so there are multiple pools... More

Purchased a timeshare rental from eBay for this stay. We stayed in Phoenix Lodge, 2300, top floor. All in all, both the condo and resort were beautiful. Noise was a slight issue. Balcony had no privacy. Lake views from our location were pretty much non-existent. Cleanliness was top notch. Better communication is needed regarding resort activities. For the cost, I... More

Your family will love this! We parked our vehicle in front of our unit and then never left the property until it was time to check-out. We stayed in the Indian Creek building and it was wonderful to have a private pool area just for that building. We enjoyed the free canoes, kayaks and mini-golf. The Lazy River was our... More
