We stayed from Monday to Friday in a 2 bedroom cabin at Big Cedar Wilderness. We have stayed in the lodge on the Wildnerness side before and the cabins are the only way to go in our opinion. The cabin is very nice, private, quiet, and spacious. (The lodge has very thin walls.) We loved having our own huge deck... More

We go every year for 4th of July. 5 swimming areas and tons of family activities. I love the staying at the resort in the one or two-bedroom because we can cook our own meals and have plenty of room to spread out. Courtesy shuttles transport you around the area. The fireworks is a great display! There are so many... More

We've been to Big Cedar and to the Wilderness Club numerous times. This time was a disappointment. Let me start by saying we did have a great time. The pools, the grounds are still wonderful. Although some areas seemed neglected this time around. I am typically not a complainer. We've been to less than stellar resorts. But when we arrive... More

Big cedar was a nice place if you stay and do the activities offered there, going to shows in Branson might not be convenient. If your lucky to get a room with a view that is nice too!

The beauty of the Ozarks combined with Johnny Morris' vision creates a gorgeous getaway just four hours south of St Louis Mo. However, the unfortunate partnership with Bluegreen timeshares makes the service on the Wilderness Club side less than stellar. There are two "sides" to Big Cedar. The hotel side is Big Cedar - Johnny Morris owned. The timeshare side... More

We loved everything about this place. We stayed in a 2 BR condo in building 2700. Very spacious, clean and comfortable. All of the staff we encountered were pleasant and helpful. The cookie lady would come every evening with fresh cookies, a different type every night. Would definitely recommend staying here.
