"Family Tradition"
Reviewed 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!
Tip: Great for All Age Groups

"After Christmas in Branson"
Reviewed 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.
Tip: It is a cabin so don't expect the Ritz but had everything you could possilby need including a light for the fireplace.

Reviewed July 16, 2016 NEW

If you like a touch of rustic adventure, you will enjoy the cabins. The cabins are clean and they come with towels, wash clothes and bedding. There is a small kitchen, one full bed and a day bed with a trundle. The front porch has a gas grill for cooking out. Picnic tables and fire puts are also available. The only thing about the cabins, there is no place to sit and relax. I used my yard chair while sitting and watching tv. Some cabins are different from the one we stayed in. The campground is very nice, well kept, and the staff are top notch. There is also a nice game room and pool. They bring in entertainers, such as magicians, to entertain in the game room in the evenings. It is a nice environment.

"Horrific experience - DON'T SPEND THE $ ON THIS DUMP"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed July 12, 2016 NEW

We booked a two night stay at SDC Wilderness to make good use of our SDC season passes and stay close by. My expectations was that it was going to be on par with SDC park. We stayed in the Loft Cabin with 2 adults and three children. We fully understood that the cabins were on a campground and that it was a more rustic experience than posh cabins. That being said, we checked in at the front desk to be greeted by an elderly lady who was short on customer service. She acted bothered, and gave us minimal information about the amenities, I even had to ask her about getting a key to the cabin, you know, a way to actually get in. Not a great first impression, we checked in at 6:30pm. We entered the cabin, which was much smaller appearing than my impressions from the photos on the website. That's when we smelled a fire. We quickly realized that a small bedside lamp upstairs in the loft area was smoking, the cord was burned onto the light bulb and was burning and the light bulb smoking really bad. I quickly unplugged the lamp and fanned the cabin. I am very unsure why the smoke alarms did not go off, maybe no batteries? There was definitely enough smoke to trigger an alarm, so in hindsight I wish I had checked the alarms to see if they had working batteries. We unpacked and headed back to the general store (also the check in desk), I reported the lamp issue. No attempt was made to replace the lamp so that the upstairs would have light for our stay. The two older ladies simply said, oh my. Didn't ask if we unplugged, didn't offer a darn thing to help, investigate, etc. We purchased groceries to make our dinner on the grill located on the back porch of our cabin. We spent $40, inflated prices, but it is a vacation so what the heck. That's when we discovered that the gas grill's propane tank valve was stuck in it's position, basically rusted shut. We tried everything to get it to open, with no luck. Defeated, we made other dinner plans. At about that time, we realized we had a leaking toilet, with water on our bathroom floor. I then decided that we had to contact the staff to alert them of the cabin issues and get them addressed. I rumaged through my check in info to find a contact number to call the front desk ladies. Problem is that they never took the time to tell me how to contact them for help. After scouring the map of the property I finally found a number. I called from my cell (fyi - no phone in cabin, which is ok because it is rustic, but even more reason to point out a contact number for guests to be able to reach staff as needed). I received a voicemail that said to leave a message and they would get back with me. We headed to the pool right next to the general store. The pool was crowded, it is very small but typical of campground pools. About an hour and a half after leaving the message I received a call from one of the two ladies. She never apologized about any of the issues and asked me to bring the propane tank to the front desk and they would try to find a replacement "out back". She sounded very put out and miffed that I had even alerted them to the problem. I explained that I would not be able to bring the propane tank to the front desk as I had back issues that prevented me from lifting. Plus, I am supposed to be on vacation . . . . . . . The lady told me that there was not a maint. man on duty until the morning and that they were just women ( I am too), so I would need to bring that propane tank to them. What?????????? With kids screaming at the overcrowded pool, I headed to the store to discuss this. I was greeted by a very rude older lady who again told me she could not do anything as she was a woman. I told her I understood, but that surely there were other staff members available, that I could not lift the propane tank. She said no, that indeed her and the other lady were the ONLY staff available. No apologies, only attitude and she was clearly miffed at me for even bringing it up. I explained that we would have to consider leaving the property due to the amenities not being provided, multiple issues, including no light upstairs (which by the way is so tiny you can only fit beds and have to squeeze between the bed and the railing carefully to walk across it). She was unconcerned and said to check with someone in the morning. Wow. . . . . So at 9:30 at night I was looking for an alternative place to stay. We decided to stay the night, just to avoid the inconvenience of repacking up and trying to find an adequate place to stay on a busy summer weekend in Branson. I went back and INSISTED that she call someone. She reluctantly called a maint. person - who it turns out actually lives on property. She started the phone call with, HI, I have a VERY unhappy lady up here complaining about several issues in her cabin. The maintenance man was clearly miffed, she kept apologizing that she was bothering him, and he did end up hanging up on her. Seriously. The maint. man came by with a lamp in hand about an hour later. He had dug it out of the maids storage. He was not rude, but clearly wanted to go back to bed. He brought about three towels and said he would just leave those here for us to get water up in the bathroom as he didn't want to deal with the toilet leak until tomorrow. He did not make an attempt to go in the bathroom to even look at it. We had to insist that he take a look at it, at least eyeball it. He plugged in the lamp upstairs, leaving the price tag still on it, the lamp shade still wrapped in plastic that was clearly labels to remove to avoid fire. Seriously, fire #2 risk had we not quickly removed it after we realized it. The lamp shade did not even fit the lamp properly. He wanted to deal with the propane in the morning also. We asked him to at least just step out there and see if he could turn the knob. He did so, and reported back that it had been stuck but he had fixed it. The cabin itself is very small, the pictures are very deceiving. We stayed in cabin 37 which faces a major road and is only buffered by the campers that are a stones throw from your cabin steps. So major road traffic and campers on top of you, so much for being one with nature :-) The cabin has open steps to the loft area that are pretty rickety and would not be safe for young children as they could very easily fall through. The bathroom has open walls at the top (about a foot is open surrounding the bathroom), so no privacy. I don't understand this build design, was it to avoid a fart fan? Not sure. Is it like a hillbilly fart fan to leave it open??? Oh well. What was the worst part of our stay? The attitudes present when trying to get help from staff that clearly just wanted to be in bed. All of our problems were reported by 8pm, I don't consider that extremely late. Basically, two old ladies run the operation after 5 - kind of interesting since check in begins at 4pm. I feel bad that they are put in that position, but with that being said, they need to do their job and be willing to employ on call staff when needed, and clearly that was not the way they see it. I got the distinct impression they would rather have refunded our almost $400 for two nights vs. deal with the burning lamp, leaking toilet, non working grill, etc. We ended up staying the two nights due to Branson being sold out for rooms that would accommodate our party of 5. Our beds were extremely hard - very cheap mattress quality. The quilts on the bed were dirty, I don't believe they wash with every new stay. I think they only change the sheets and throw on the quilts and quilted shams (gross). Can you believe they have an envelope on the desk for housekeeping tips. We NEVER saw housekeeping. Our cabin was not cleaned during our stay. No trash taken out, etc. Never again. Left a horrible impression of SDC property, and frankly SDC in general and we are season pass holders. We have stayed many places in Branson and love Big Cedar Wildernees Club (which we knew this would be different but were fine with that because we were focusing on doing parks this time). SDC - you need to either dump this operation or bring it up to the standards of your park. I will be following up with management if there is such a thing for this property.

"Great Place to stay"

We took our 28 Ft Travel Trailer to Branson and stayed at the Wilderness because it was close to SDC and we got a good discount with the season pass. We stayed all week (Sat to Sat) It is a very clean campground and with the exception of the highway (which we got used to) a very quiet campground. The bathroom facilities are probably the cleanest, most modern I've ever seen in a campground. The pool was very clean and the staff was very friendly. We were on site 21, which was one of the larger sites beside the pull thru's across from us. My only complaint was that to get out, with the one way roads, we had to drive around the entire campground loop to get out! I'm not so much concerned with time, but the extra risks of kids darting out of campsites and such was something to think about! The other baffling thing about this campground was how much turnover there was throughout the week! The site was mostly level and hookups were very close to where they were needed!

"Relaxing Stay"

My family enjoyed the stay at SDC Wilderness Camp. It felt like a safe place for kids. Many of the RV spots are shaded. The restroom facilities and showers were very clean. My only complaint is the layout of the campground. It is long and narrow, and the facilities are not centrally located. If you like to use the pool or purchase something at the general store, you have to take your vehicle if your spot is not located near those places. Not too much of a problem if you can find a parking spot!

Very nice Campground with lots of shade. The staff are helpful and friendly. They also have log cabins to rent if you prefer. The bathrooms/showers were kept clean. If you forgot anything, there was a nice little store. We had a great time and will come back again.
