Our family of six (four kids ages 11-5) have been frequent guests of my parents who are members of BlueGreen. We've been visiting since before there was a Wilderness Club. The Wilderness Club cabins and lodge rooms are well done with themed decorating; however, they lack the attention to detail found in the original Big Cedar cabins. Also, the Wilderness...

It's apparently basically a time share operation and they were busy all day running folks in and out of the "show" cabin and...

Hands down, the Wilderness Club at Big Cedar is a family favorite! The lazy river in the summer is so relaxing, especially because of its natural setting in the forest. But the endless list of amenities makes for a very full vacation of so many options for everyone-- waters ports on the lake, miniature golf, swimming, fishing, hiking... The shuttle...

We spent Christmas eve and Christmas night in a studio. We have been to BCL and WC so many time I can't tell you how many times we have stayed there. This trip was nice but I have to say a few things; 1 - The studio we were in needs some attention. The carpet is shot and needs to...

Beautiful location. Lots to do on site. The food choices are amazing. We spent time hiking the trails. Close to all the Branson activities but so much to do at the resort. We are planning our next trip already.

The rooms here at The Wilderness Club are spacious, beautiful, and immaculate. The only downside to our stay, which is a large one, is that I can hear every word spoken outside of any room close by, not to mention each step taken by the room above us, and every conversation had by the studio adjoining us. It was such...
