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...

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.

Wilderness Club is a time-share component of the Big Cedar Resort about ten miles south of Branson. We traded into it using our Shell Vacation Club points. There were several special features of the resort: complimentary cookies delivered each evening to our door; an outstanding Sunday buffet brunch at the Devil's Pool Restaurant; the Top of the Rock (which included...

We used our BlueGreen points and had our family vacation here. The resort is beautiful! I only wished that I specifically stated keep us all on the same floor. My family was spread out in two buildings. My room, and we're the owners, was like being in a cave. Very dark and not allot of natural light. We did spend...

Wow. Can't say enough about this place. It was as great or even better than I remembered from going 9 years ago. We stayed in the lodge and had a 2 bedroom combined lodge! It was plenty big enough for two families! When you walk in, you're in a large and fully stocked kitchen. We were only here two nights...

The 1 bedroom is a great size for a couple or small family, and completely furnished, as all most Bluegreen properties are. Unfortunately, my husband had to clean the underside of the toilet seat, and there were plastic tags from clothing on the bathroom floor. Stay here and you won't need your car on property, as transportation is provided, and...

We prefer the cabins for the detached building but are fine with the lodge accommodations, too. Nice treat for yourself, spouse and family. The shuttle service is a great way to get around the grounds. Well done for outdoorsy decor. Be sure to visit the on site restaurants and the Top of The Rock!
