We traveled with a group of 8, 4 adults, 4 kids age 5-11 y/o. They loved the pools, lazy river, slides, etc... The shuttles are great, and come very often. We purchased someones time share off of ebay and got a great deal. Very close to Branson if you want to enjoy a show.

We stay at this resort every summer for 1 week and look forward to our visit every year. The resort is expansive with plenty to do for couples or families. The resort is always kept very clean and the shuttle drivers are very pleasant and courteous. There are many pools and a lazy river--each pool area has something unique to...

Our family usually comes here in the fall, so this was our first time visiting in the off-season. We stayed at the Kings River Lodge on the third floor, which afforded us a view of Table Rock Lake and the hills on the other side. We could also see the concierge building just off to our right. Pros: 1. The...

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...

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.
