Spanning over 4,600 acres in Missouri’s Ozark Mountains, America’s premier wilderness resort, Big Cedar Lodge, offers an authentic lakeside retreat for lovers of the great outdoors, discerning golfers, families, relaxation seekers, and everyone in between. The overnight Camp Long Creek Glamping Experience, just minutes away from the property, combines camping with comfort and ensures the on-property fun doesn’t end when the sun goes down. Travelers can enjoy the serene backdrop of Table Rock Lake while relaxing in one of the camp’s unique accommodations – shepherd huts, camp cabins or glamping tents. The lakefront Family Glamping Tent, adorned with wood floors and a chandelier, comes with a cozy kids tent (large enough for two children) conveniently located in the unit’s very own private courtyard, alongside the outdoor tub perfect for nightswimming. Fun-filled activities at Camp Long Creek for the whole family include the Camp Long Creek Pool & Hot Tub with a large pool, hot tub and comfortable lounge chairs, access to some of the best fishing and watersports in the country at Long Creek Marina, nights spent around the campfire and other unforgettable amenities.
