A nice resort with a very friendly and responsive staff. Our visit was in early March with bare trees and cool weather. Nonetheless, we enjoyed most activities offered by the club. In particular, Top of the Rock was an unexpected pleasure and the food at Arnie's Barn was very good. Also, try the chili at Buzzard's Bar. I like chili...

Big cedar lodge rests by table rock lake. Of the three types of rooms- studio, suite, master- my wife and I stayed in the cheapest which is studio. Nice balcony view of the lake. Only thing bad I can say is the bathroom was basic and small. The suites have jetted tubs and huge bathrooms though.

Let’s get one thing straight before I start this review, I really like this resort. It has more major positives than negatives, and if you appreciate where you are you will realize that as fact.

Love Big Cedar.... we enjoyed a spa day, visited Dogwood Canyon, ate at Buzzard Bar and Buffalo Bar, Arnies Barn, went to Outdoor Academy, Yoga, workout room, walked and loved all of it! The tranquility of the area and you don't even need to leave Big Cedar.

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.

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...
