Inspired by a commitment to conservation and a passion for connecting families through the outdoors, Big Cedar Lodge and its attractions were created by Bass Pro Shops founder, Johnny Morris. Among those attractions, Johnny Morris’ Top of the Rock Ozarks Heritage Preserve cannot be missed. A true celebration of the land, animals, and people that came before us, Top of the Rock honors the alluring landscape and rich history of southwest Missouri. The experience begins with a two-and-a-half mile journey on an electric cart, taking you along a trail surrounded by limestone canyons, across Amish-built bridges and water crossings, and through a four-story cave complete with cave bar. Once through the trail, the scene opens to magnificent views of Table Rock Lake, the Chapel of the Ozarks, and the Arnold Palmer Driving Range. Known as a world-class golf destination, Top of the Rock is home to the PGA TOUR Champions event, the Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf. Top of the Rock is the only par-3 course ever to be included in an official PGA TOUR event, and in the words of PGA TOUR Commissioner, Tim Finchem, “If there was ever a par-3 course worthy of PGA TOUR tournament play, Top of the Rock is it.” The golf experience includes a Jack Nicklaus 9-Hole Signature Course and an Arnold Palmer Driving Range.The centerpiece of Top of the Rock is the Ancient Ozarks Natural History Museum. This landmark first for the region features the foremost collection of prehistoric, civil war, and Native American art and artifacts. The sprawling, 35,000-square-foot subterranean adventure walks you through the chronological development of the Ozarks, beginning with prehistoric skeletal remains and dioramas and concluding with Civil War relics. The heart of the museum boasts the most significant collection of Native American art and artifacts ever assembled. Before leaving Top of the Rock to set out on the next Big Cedar Lodge adventure, guests can enjoy extraordinary dining options in a variety of venues. Arnie’s Barn, a 150-year old barn relocated from Arnold Palmer’s hometown of Latrobe, PA and rebuilt by local Amish craftsmen, offers Mexican cuisine with an Ozarks flare. For more traditional American favorites, Osage Restaurant and Buffalo Bar feature mouth-watering menu items and jaw-dropping views of Table Rock Lake.
