"Family Tradition"
February, 2015
Our first trip to Wilderness Cabins was 6 years ago. At the time our children were 1 and 2 years old and the cabins couldn't have been more perfect for our family. We enjoyed the seclusion of the cabins within the forest and the pavement roads were ideal for strollers and walking. Since our first trip 6 years ago we have made it back every year and have brought more family members with us to enjoy our home away from home for that one week out of the year. We love to bring our own groceries and cook onsite after a long day of activities, the girls now 6 and 7 enjoy the swimming pool in the late afternoons. We have met so many other wonderful families over the years staying at the Wilderness as well. It really has that family feeling with a warm "good morning" from everyone we pass on our early morning strolls. We hope to continue to make it back to the Wilderness year upon year and keep our family tradition going, as our kids look forward to it each year!

"After Christmas in Branson"
January, 2015
What a wonderful time we had at the Wilderness Cabins. The cabins were great. Each night we enjoyed a roaring fire and relaxing time. I was a little concerned about my choice but it turned out to be the best experience ever and was the very cozy getaway we were looking for with everything we needed. We were fussed at for checking in early but wanted to get settled in before dark due to having a show that afternoon. The front desk person the first day could have been a little nicer but at other times the others were very nice and helpful. Will certainly do this again.

The beauty of the ozarks during the fall is something to behold, and The wilderness campground at SDC does not disappoint. We were pulling a 22’ RV and came in late, but had no problem finding our site and setting up quickly. If your a newbie to RVing you may find the cozy setup a little challenging, as the one-way roads wind around numerous trees within the campground. Best to relax and take it down a notch before you get there as it will be a lot more enjoyable. They have sites with amenities for all types of rigs and their online website is very informative and helpful. Every staff member we met were friendly and helpful, and seemed to genuinely enjoy their job. Impressive considering the high volume of traffic this time of year. Small store has basics on hand and coffee ready first thing. If you are planning on a visit to SDC, the shuttle back and forth is EXTREMELY convenient. Especially if your toting small people! We plan on coming back here next year.

We spent 2 nights at SDC Wilderness. It was a great experience and we really enjoyed the fireplace and the rocking chairs on the porch. This is a wonderful place to get away from your daily grind. I would highly recommend.

"Scorpions are scary"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed October 06, 2018
We liked the cabin on first arrival. Looked nicely decorated and clean. However when we pulled the trendal bed out that was not clean at all. Looked like a dog or shedding pet slept in it. Hair everywhere. We did not say anything and just chose not to use the trendal. The shower head is so forceful it hurt and had no adjustment options. Had to just wash my little ones up with a rag. The second night my 5 year old found a scorpion in the room and it freaked us out. Especially having a 2 year old sleeping practically on the floor in a pack n play. We left that night and got a hotel room. We still had one more night to paid stay at the cabins and we were sad that we could not get that 1 night refunded. I expected bugs in a cabin, but not scorpions.

"Super nice"

Stayed here tent camping. Nice sites with pea gravel. They are not huge but have a fire pit and picnic table. Don’t come when it’s crowded because the sites have practically no space between them. We had the place to ourselves so it was perfect. The bathroom/showers are super nice and clean. I met the lady who cleans them. Thanks to her! Little store with coffee and fountain soda and whatever you might need. They have a shuttle to SDC if you’d wish to use it. Also have RV sites and cabins. Would return!

"Good RV sites - for smaller units though!"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed September 21, 2018
This was a nice RV park. Not too far away from the attractions in town, and with handy access to the Silver Dollar City theme park. The shuttle from the RV park to the theme park was nice, but the scheduled runs (every three hours in late summer/early fall) aren't that convenient. Our site (#154) was level from side to side, but sloped off towards the front. Nothing extreme, just two Lynx levelers under the front tires was all it took. The sites are not very deep, and the roads are pretty tight. I saw quite a few people having trouble negotiating the park and trying to get longer units into their assigned space. The larger DP Class A's had the most trouble getting into the site from a narrow approach. The AC voltage here was lower than what I have seen at other parks. We had a 30 amp site. During our entire stay I never saw it above 119 VAC. It would dip pretty well with the AC on, and it was impossible to run both the AC and water heater (on electric) at the same time. The same thing went for the microwave and my wife's blow dryer. This was true even on days where the RV park was very sparsely populated. With our AC on we saw mostly 116 VAC. Water pressure was good and low enough to not require use of a regulator. The water didn't taste funny or have any offputting odors. If you plan to stay here, and visit the theme park for more than just a couple of days, you may want to check into getting season passes. The cost of a season pass is only slightly more than two days admission, but it saves you 15% on your RV site, and even more if you decide to have a dinner cruise on the Branson Belle (as we did). The laundry facility was clean, but the dryers seemed to take a long time to get the job done. The pool was closed on our visit (early September), but looked to be pretty large, with lots of deck space around it. The other amenities were nice and generally kept clean. I just wish it had an off-leash dog run. We would stay here again, but we were in a 30' Class A motor home, so it is about the right length for the shallow sites and tight roads. Our only real complaint was the traffic noise. Our site backed up to Hwy-265 and it is a *very* busy road - day and night! The traffic zooms by and sees a mix of heavy delivery vehicles as well as locals on their way to work. If you can book a site away from the road you will probably not notice the traffic as much as we did.
