"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.

"2nd visit"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed October 14, 2017 NEW
This was our 2nd visit to this campground and we enjoyed it yet again. We stayed in the back loop this time and our site was level and not cramped. We had space between us and our neighbors and traffic was minimal. This campground stays busy and we had to make reservations several months in advance. Some of the sites are cramped and it can be a little difficult to get around if you have a big camper. Our site did not have any grass on it and was all rock, dogs didn't are for that but we managed. We checked out several other campgrounds in the area for the next trip and we still liked this one the best. I think it had more room and privacy than any of the others we looked at.

"Loved The Cabin And The Quiet!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 13, 2017
My stay here was wonderful! I loved our cabin and its' decor. It was very quite and peaceful. The cabin was very clean, and fully equipped to cook and eat in. I would highly recommend staying here. As for cost, it all depends on when you reserve, if you have a Silver Dollar City season pass and when you book your stay. That may seem vague but each of these play a factor in the overall cost. The other factors that effect price are size of cabin, kitchenette, etc. My friends and I decided we all felt like Laura Engalls Wilder when we went to bed at night, and that was a good thing.

"Family Friendly"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed September 07, 2017
The overall experience was a good one. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this to anyone. We noticed two things, both staff related. The store was suppose to stay open till 10, my husband showed up at 9:58 to purchase ice, the door was already locked and the two employees were already counting the cash drawer and never looked up. Also when we first arrived I ask the lady at the counter about SDC staying open later on Saturday Sept 2nd, and how that would affect the shuttle. She said they closed at 7, I mentioned again they were open till 10, she was very argumentative. Just wish the staff was knowledgeable about what is going on within the property they are working at.

"Very cramped & poor service"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed September 03, 2017
Some of the sites are so small that they recommend parking your vehicle in the field. As that inconvenience would give you more room for your things, your tent is still 4-6 feet away from your neighbors. It felt more like a refugee tent city than it did like camping in the wilderness. When I complained to the service reps that we weren't satisfied with our stay, all she said was, "Sorry." The campground was designed with greed in mind, and it shows in the service as well. Never again.

"Not what I was expecting."
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed August 28, 2017
Nothing level to park a camper on but understand it is in the mountains. When I booked it, I pictured it closer to Silver Dollar City and thought shuttles would go back and forth at least once an hour. We planned to go to SDC in the morning, return to campground for lunch then go back to park. Since shuttles don't run but 3 times a day, that didn't work for us. Staff is not very friendly. When we saw the walk we would have to make early in the morning to catch the shuttle, and up a big hill, we asked if we could move closer to the office and was told no, they were all booked for the time we'd be there. Each of the 3 days we seen several spots that would been closer for us that remained empty. So we felt lied to. The second day we took our camper to the park rather than the shuttle. They did accommodate us by switching our lot from one near the busy road to a quieter one while still being near restrooms as we requested. Restrooms and showers were very nice. Staff were not very friendly. Has some very cute little cabins they rent out. Had a pool , but we didn't use it. If I go to Branson again, I would not stay there.
