Big Cedar Lodge - Relax. Refresh. Reconnect.
In the midst of hectic lifestyles, with our faces pointed toward digital screens in the frenzy of a post-pandemic world, it is far too easy to lose sight of what’s really important. This season, take time out of your busy life to relax, refresh, and reconnect. At Big Cedar Lodge, a remote haven of natural beauty awaits. Prepare to enjoy the healing power that Mother Nature has to offer.
Nestled deep within the Missouri Ozark Mountains lies a world-class resort, offering an escape into the immersive relaxation of the great outdoors, with all the comforts of luxury amenities. Johnny Morris, founder of Bass Pro Shops, created Big Cedar Lodge as a destination for families and friends to connect by bringing conservation to life through nature-inspired accommodations, extraordinary attractions, and breathtaking views.
Upon entering the 4,600-acre resort, you’ll be met with winding roads, rugged landscape, trickling water crossings, and magnificent vistas overlooking sparkling Table Rock Lake, calling you to slow down and take in the beauty that surrounds you. Here, you can disconnect from the chaos of everyday life and be welcomed by genuine Ozarks hospitality. With inviting accommodations, spectacular restaurants, two full-service marinas, five golf courses, a 50,000-square-foot activity center, awe-inspiring spa, unparalleled fishing and countless outdoor adventures, Big Cedar Lodge is a destination where you’ll make memories to last a lifetime.
The captivating setting is only the beginning. Settle into your room for the evening and enjoy natural touches like the crackle of a real wood-burning fireplace and stylish rustic décor. Secluded cabins, built with hand-hewn timbers, are tucked into the hillside, and Adirondack-style lodges are carefully positioned for optimal lake views. Exclusive accommodations, perfect for families or large groups, include glamping-style camping units at Camp Long Creek, or more intimate cottages with custom details like a glass floor with a trickling stream below or a private outdoor shower showcasing views of the lake or our world-class golf courses.
Perhaps the most extraordinary facet of Big Cedar Lodge is the variety of ways you can reconnect in the Ozarks outdoors. For those seeking adventure, the marinas offer boat rentals, fishing guides, and evening sunset dinner cruises aboard a 62-foot luxury yacht. Part of the Bass Pro Shops and White River Marine Group family, these marinas are fully stocked with everything you need to catch an unforgettable day on the water, from the best fishing lure to the latest Tracker Boat.
The adventure continues at Bass Pro Shops Shooting Academy. For the skilled and novice sportsman alike, an outdoorsman’s playground awaits, offering training and experience in various shooting disciplines. At Fun Mountain, there’s something for the whole family to enjoy with an underwater-themed bowling alley and restaurant, a state-of-the-art arcade, 4-story open-air ropes course, go-carts, laser tag, and more!
Part of the Big Cedar Lodge experience includes the breathtaking Top of The Rock Ozarks’ Heritage Preserve featuring the Lost Canyon Cave and Nature Trail. It is truly an encounter with nature unlike anything else. Take an electric cart along a two-and-a-half-mile trail and experience unbelievable views of towering bluffs, tranquil waterfalls, sprawling vistas, and a drive-thru cave complete with a cave bar. Then begin a new exploration at the 35,000-square-foot Ancient Ozarks Natural Museum. View prehistoric displays and lifelike dioramas, followed by expansive galleries including American West treasures, Civil War relics, and one of the most extensive collections of Native American art and artifacts ever assembled.
Over the years, Big Cedar Lodge has also redefined golf in the Ozarks. Five distinct nature golf courses are the vision of Johnny Morris and some of the biggest names in golf: Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Tom Fazio, Gary Player, Tom Watson, Coore & Crenshaw, and Tiger Woods. Through these masterful collaborations, no detail has been spared in creating a multi-course destination that beautifully embraces the natural landscape.
Fuel your next outdoor adventure with a remarkable dining experience featuring some of Missouri’s finest cuisine. Food is one of our passions and a wide variety of dining options are available ranging from casual to fine dining. When you’re ready to be pampered, spoil yourself at the 18,000-square-foot Cedar Creek Spa. Luxuriously appointed treatment rooms, each featuring its own cozy fireplace, a stone grotto, outdoor spaces, and soothing salon and body treatments all play their part in providing a complete relaxation experience, leaving your mind and body rejuvenated.
