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. The resort was beautiful and offered beautiful swimming pools, both indoor and out, and fun club for evenings, a marina with complimentary canoes, paddle boats... More

Our first visit to Big Cedar. We stayed in one of the lodges at the Wilderness Club and it was awesome. They have a shuttle to take you anywhere you want to go within the entire Big Cedar resort. So many fun and free activities for families: the paddle boats, the s'mores bonfire, putt-putt and the kids fishing tournament at... More

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!

We've owned with Bluegreen for about 11 years now and this is one of our favorite places to stay. Even with chilly April weather, there are still lots of things to do: indoor and outdoor heated pools, walking/hiking trails, miniature golf, paddle boats, etc. The resort always has tons of activities available and you have no excuse if you get...

Wilderness Club is a special place! We stayed in the James River Lodge section (2900) in a 1 bedroom Condo in early March. We were so surprised at how beautiful the condo was! We loved the lodge decor and all lodge themed decorative touches. We had requested a top floor as I had read that foot traffic could be heard... More

The area where this lodge is located is beautiful with views of Tablerock Lake. The room was nice and comfortable with a mini kitchen. The bed was large and there was a flat screen TV. The room could be better arranged and the bathtub was really small, but it was adequate. There is no housekeeping service, only replenished towels. There... More

We love coming to the WCBC. Buying into the timeshare was a great decision. We have been coming here twice a year for many years now. Each time there is something new that they have done to improve the already first class property. We have visited during each of the four seasons and there is plenty to do and see... More

It is always clean, have friendly helpful staff and tons of things to do all without ever having to leave the resort. It's far enough from home but yet close enough to go to several times a year.
