"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.

"Great stay in a cabin"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed August 16, 2018 NEW
We had a cabin with a loft for four nights recently and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabin was great for a family and had everything we needed. It was charming and rustic but modern inside with AC, cable TV, kitchen, shower, grill, etc. Also swam in the nice pool each night. The highlight was a concert they had one night in the game room with some VERY talented musicians from Silver Dollar City. The campground provided free drinks and popcorn and the music was great and even got the kids in the audience involved. This is a good place if you want to be closer to SDC (less than a 5 min. drive plus they have a shuttle if you prefer) and stay away from the busy strip in Branson. The trailer and tent sites looked nice too but are close together. The wifi was slow but not a big deal because that isn't why we stayed there. Price was reasonable and you can get various discounts. This would be a great place for a family reunion or group gathering. The next time we visit Branson we will definitely stay here again.

This is our second time here and we really like it. In between Branson and Branson West and a bit secluded. Plus they will bus you to silver dollar city. Very clean and people are friendly. We will be back again.

"Not great if you're used to Arkansas State Parks"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed July 23, 2018 NEW
We took our small travel trailer up to Branson for a quick weekend trip and visit to Silver Dollar City. Just to give you an idea of what we are used to.... We typically like to camp at state parks which have always had very nice, spacious sites and are fairly quiet. We have never stayed at an RV park and have purposely avoided them. I feel like the Wilderness is probably leaning more towards an RV park type of experience. The sites were very close together and a bit difficult to back into. It felt very crowded and there wasn't any sense of privacy or solitude. Overnight it was quiet enough, so it wasn't rowdy or anything, just very different from what we are used to. I will also note that I was disappointed to find lots of broken glass right next to the pad on our site. We were traveling with a small child, so broken glass is not ideal. There was a decent playground within walking distance, so that was a nice amenity to have. There was also a good 'general store' with lots of snacks and amenities (overly priced of course). I will also add that the location of the campground itself is not ideal because the traffic for Silver Dollar City backs up on that highway. So.... if you weren't going to silver dollar city, you definitely would want to find an alternate route. It wasn't a terrible place to stay, but not what I was looking for and pricier than a typically state park. On our next Branson trip, we will look for something a bit more scenic.

"Great vacation spot "

We rented a cabin with a loft. We loved it! It had a fire pit and picnic table out front so you could cook out and it also had almost a full kitchen just no oven! Also a grill on the back porch! It was nice that they offered a shuttle to silver dollar city which is convenient and saves money! Also close to Branson to enjoy the rest of the tourist attractions! It had multiple playgrounds and a pool. Only drawbacks I noticed were that the wifi is pretty spotty and there aren't many places to sit in the cabin so pack camping chairs!

"Loved the old time feel of this place"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed June 04, 2018
We got the small cabin with the kitchenette. We all loved it. Very cozy space for bringing families together. We stayed back in cabin 6 and had nice woodland view from the back. If you are looking for a get away feeling but still want to be super close to Silver Dollar city (SDC) this is a great place to stay. The decor inside was so fun and old timey. They have a bus service to SDC, but the times are every few hours, so watch your times for the bus. It was on time, but I wish it was more frequent. The pool was a nice size and seemed very clean with fresh, very slippery, paint. Matt took great care of the small issue we had and resolved it right away. Would so love to come back and stay here again!
