This is such a lovely place. Something for everyone. There are many things to do for the active and lovely balconies and places to sit and read with a great coffee too. The pools are fantastic!!! There are many free activities.

First of all its the first place I've stayed that we had to buy our ice. They didn't have any ice trays in our refrigerator. Our bed was uncomfortable and made noises everytime you roll over. The couch was also uncomfortable. Strange set up as the kitchen is at the foot of the bed and the table on the other... More

We have stayed on property at Big Cedar and in a cabin at the Wilderness Club. This was our first experience renting a studio room in the Wilderness Club. The quality of construction was cheap and not what we've come to expect from Big Cedar. We were on the 2nd floor and heard everything above us and next to us.... More

We spent spring break at the Wilderness Club near Branson with our son and 8 year old granddaughter. Branson has so many family oriented venues we had no problem keeping ourselves entertained the entire time.

First time at this resort! The room amenities were great. Kitchens well stocked (we did a lot of cooking in our suite). The weather was supposed to be dreadful, but ended up being gorgeous. The Wilderness Club pool was awesome!! Indoor pool was good as well - kids liked it because of the slide. Cookies every afternoon, too!
