Nestled in the heart of the Ozark Mountains, the perfect family destination awaits. America’s Premier Wilderness Resort, Big Cedar Lodge has been a key part of families’ lives for decades. Over the years the adventure and beauty of the rustic luxury resort continues to grow and pave the way as a one-of-a-kind family destination. With a multitude of activities and events, your family will be eager to return for more memory-making year after year.
Spend time connecting to nature during our Adventure in the Great Outdoors Season this March-May and immerse yourself in the breathtaking natural landscapes of the Ozarks. We have everything you need to disconnect from the busy world. With so much to offer, your family can enjoy fishing, the beautiful scenery, cozy evening campfires, and much more.
With our roots in conservation, bringing families together through outdoor adventures is an instrumental part of our unique resort offerings.
Whether it’s a family movie night on the Swimmin’ Hole Lawn every Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday or a round of golf at our nine-hole putt-putt course, the opportunities for family fun are endless. You’ll even end up taking a shot from inside a large-mouth bass.
No trip to Big Cedar Lodge is complete without a trip to Fun Mountain. This one-of-a-kind experience brings out the kid in all of us! With 50,000 square feet of action-packed activities, the whole family will never want to leave. You’ll enjoy a full arcade, bumper cars, underwater-themed bowling, laser tag, a golf simulator and so much more.
Not only can families come together through interactive activities, but children can also learn and grow together through our numerous kids’ adventure club offerings. While mom and dad enjoy Brunch on the Lady Liberty Cruise or a trip to the Cedar Creek Spa, the kiddos get to enjoy four hours of Big Cedar-style fun! We will have a skill lesson followed by an excursion where the kids get to practice what they learned. We will do a themed craft, make a cozy critter, and enjoy games that go along with our adventure! Excursions include fishing, BB Guns, Archery, and seek and find (an outdoor scavenger hunt).
Nothing brings families together like family game night, and at Big Cedar Lodge we have an exciting lineup of games for all ages. Parents, before you head off to Bingo & Beverage, drop the kids off for some bingo fun of their own. They’ll enjoy a couple of rounds of Kids’ Bingo and earn prizes for winning! We also have games the entire family can participate in. Learn if your family has what it takes to win it in a minute? Join us at Fun Mountain for an hour of silly and challenging games. Winning teams will be awarded prizes and random trivia questions will be asked throughout the activity for bonus prizes.
