Off the Beaten Path and in the Middle of it all!

The Wilderness offers private cabins and campsites with a remote lost-in-the-woods feeling.

We offer a swimming pool, General Store and a Free Shuttle to Silver Dollar City.

Spend a little time with the ones you love in our beautiful rustic log cabins hand hewn by Silver Dollar City craftsmen. All are equipped like home, with everything you need to read by the fire, rock away the night, or serve up a barbecue on your private gas grill. The charming design and peaceful setting make our air conditioned cabins in the The Wilderness, a popular choice for campers who don't exactly want to rough it. It's simply a beautiful place to relax, away from life's stresses and worries, yet so close to Branson's Fun.

"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!
Tip: Great for All Age Groups

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

My family has stayed in campgrounds all of the state and have never had an experience like we have here. FYI the reservation system means nothing! We reserved our spots over a month in advance only to arrive and find out that that means nothing. Front desk worker was rude!! As if it were our fault the system they provided wasn't effective. Our party was then spread throughout the park, so much for the "family" vacation we had called ahead to ensure. My family was then placed on a spot of which another family had prepaid for and asked that whoever it was given to be "comped". Well I can tell you they paid full price and we paid full price then they resold our site, meaning the Wilderness Campground actually STOLE money from someone...ugh. Silver Dollar City should be ashamed to have their name associated with this place. Save your money on this overpriced joke and hit a State Park!!

We got a Wilderness Cabin that had a loft, and it was enough room for 2 adults/5 children. It is an amazing experience for the children...the many different cabins (in the surroundings), the rugged-looking cabin, the fireplace and beautiful fires, community fires outside at night, for the kids: Knowing that Silver Dollar City is close by.

So much fun... Weekends are crowded and lines are long. The festivals change every 30 days so there is always something new to see. The old time Christmas will certainly put you in the Christmas spirit.

Great experience for our family, friendly staff, clean grounds and cabin. Roomy cabin and plenty of parking. Had cabin 27 with the loft which can sleep 7. Very clean and comfortable, wifi service, small kitchen area and dinning table and full bathroom. Nicely located to area attractions. Would highly recommend staying here. Our first visit to the area and what a treat it has been. We will return to the area often now that we know what a great place it is to come too. Will gladly stay here again. And the free shuttle to and from Silver Dollar City is an added bonus. Nice pool area, game room and gift shop on site. Recommend to us by trusted family friends who always stay here when in the area.

We enjoyed our stay at the wilderness lodge, the cabin was fun, the only few downfalls was that you can not have any type of food/ drinks etc laying out due to ants. the last night we stayed it rained hard and the roof had a leak and thankfully it wasn't on the bed my kids was sleeping on upstairs in the loft. We reported it upon checkout so it is probably fixed. I cant blame the wilderness lodge for the leaky roof sine the rain was coming down pretty hard all night and things happen so don't let that discourage anyone on staying in these cabins the only issue is the ants. we kept all our food items in the fridge even our food items that didn't need to be in the fridge.
