I have never been more impressed than with the detail of the decorations in the rooms to the landscaping of the resort. Location is great and the views are perfect. The pools and hot tubs are amazing. We will be back again.

The Wilderness Club at Big Cedar is separate and apart from the formal Big Cedar Resort. They were part of the Bass Pro family, but it was sold a few years back. Bluegreen now manages the facility.

This is my second trip to a Big Cedar resort, and it has become a new mainstay. Every day there is at least one or two free activities for kids. We went to the fishing contest-poles and worms supplied, and they have sand art, candy making, movie party, and lots of other events. Wilderness Club has access to unlimited paddle... More

We enjoyed our week here. The pools are great. The view was awesome. Good fishing. Mother and Father in law enjoyed the time with grandkids. They were nervous about getting around and going to the pools. The pools made my mother in law feel great as she could walk around without the stress on her body. Resort about fifteen minutes...

We stayed in a two-bedroom cabin with a secluded deck and a beautiful view. The queen sized bed was on the soft side but comfortable. The wood fireplace added atmosphere and took off the chill on the rainy evening of our arrival. The kitchen is well furnished and we cooked several meals. We appreciated being able to do laundry in... More

We did the introduction tour with Bluegreen through Big Cedar & the Wilderness Club @ Big Cedar. They are not pushy, very informative and display a beautiful property. This is a must see, must stay. Great family atmosphere!

We have been going here every year for the last 8 year. It has the best service. I fell in love with the place because of the service. It reminds me of Disney the service is so good. Put that together with a central location and beautiful lake and grounds and you have paradise.
