A group of eleven family and friends have spent our last five Thanksgivings at The Wilderness Club. The accommodations are excellent and we always arrange for the Thanksgiving dinner to be served in one of the condos. The service is excellent, but this year's food was very disappointing and not up to the quality of previous years. The turkey and... More

We stayed at the hotel part of the Bluegreen Wilderness. We were not very impressed. The room we were in was not big enough for the 3 adults & 1 preschooler. We had to call maintenance 2 different times to get the toilet & the tub fixed. We did however enjoy the pool & hot tub. Maybe next time we... More

Celebrated our anniversary here the staff was amazing. Gave us a gift of chocolates and wine glasses, stopped by every day with fresh baked cookies and asked if there was anything we needed. We stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin, it was beautiful.

I have stayed at the Wilderness Club several times each year for the past few years. It's an excellent value. Much cheaper than big cedar but with all of the amenities. Great pools and lazy river. I look forward to my next visit

We were guests of a member of Blue Green and this is one of the nicest places we've seen. All the staff was friendly and the grounds were beautifully landscaped. The rooms we had were large and comfy. The decor was outdoorsy, so if you don't like mounted deer heads you might not like it. Each room had a balcony... More

We bought into this years ago. Still 5 star. By ourselves or with kids, still fun. Things to do here, or go into Branson. The cookie lady delivers fresh cookies every day. Don't know why, but I still look forward to it.
