Patterned after the grand wilderness lodge architecture of the Adirondacks, Bluegreen Wilderness Club offers the ultimate family-friendly retreat. This 40-acre resort is situated on Table Rock Lake, just 10 miles south of Branson, Missouri.
With a plethora of activities for all ages and access to all the amenities of neighboring Big Cedar Lodge, your days will be full without ever leaving the resort.
The regional charm of the Ozarks is reflected in the rustic elegance of the Wilderness Club’s log cabins and lodge units, all with a view of the lake or woods.
The attention to interior detail is unsurpassed. Each spacious cabin has vaulted ceilings, a fireplace, whirlpool bath, homespun area rugs and a 350-square-foot deck with gas grill. Lodge units feature wood-planked floors, spa-sized tubs (except in studios), patios, hickory sapling furniture and mountings of trophy bucks and game birds. Some also include a cozy fireplace with a split log mantle.
The 9,000-square-foot clubhouse houses a game room, lounge, retail store, snack bar and activities desk. But the crown jewel is the Lazy River, an 875-foot water feature complete with caves, rock grottoes, waterfall and a water slide the kids are sure to love (open Memorial Day through Labor Day). Kids will also enjoy the playground, complete with a rock climbing wall.
Wilderness Club at Big Cedar is located adjacent to the historic Big Cedar Lodge and provides guests access to a vast array of entertainment and recreational trails. Enjoy breathtaking views from Top of the Rock, a Jack Nicklaus signature golf course.
Located 16 miles west of us, near the Missouri/Arkansas line is Dogwood Canyon Nature Park. This pristine reserve, 2,200 acres in all, was founded by Bass Pros Shops founder, Johnny Morris, as a way to preserve the natural Ozarks environment for generations to come. Dogwood Canyon offers a wide variety of activities for all ages, as well as an outdoor café, Segway tours, private guided Jeep tours and a historic chapel for weddings and special events. Relax and enjoy a two-hour ride through the park on an open-air tram. The breathtaking scenery includes towering bluffs and waterfalls, herds of elk and bison running free, sparkling creeks, even a stop to feed the rainbow trout. (Reservations strongly recommended).
An extraordinary way to see areas of the park set aside just for riders are on the back of a horse. Ages 10 and up can go on a one-hour ride (there is also a special junior rider program for those ages 3 to 9). You can also enjoy Dogwood Canyon on a self-guided walking or biking tour along paved, gently sloping paths. Bring your own bike, or rent one of theirs. And there is nothing like the thrill of hooking a Rainbow Trout, you can even take your catch home for dinner! There are rods and tackle for rent, as well as guided tours. In addition there are fly-casting clinics on Tuesdays and Thursdays and special two-day fly casting schools throughout the season.
