We have gone to Big Cedar once a month for about 8 years. We have put off going to Dogwood Canyon because we couldn't believe it would be anything comparable to the grounds on Big Cedar. Boy, were we wrong! We loved the tram ride around the park and the bison, elk and deer. Don't miss this opportunity. The church... More

My husband and I go on a vacation annually to Branson with the extended family we wanted to go and walk trails. My husband and his family had visited there before and wanted to take me and I'm so pleased we did. The grounds were gorgeous we got some wonderful photos.

Dogwood Canyon is one of our favorite places in the Ozarks. The serene, peaceful canyon is absolutely beautiful with natural trout streams, waterfalls and caves in a beautiful wooded setting. The hiking/biking trail is paved making it very easy to travel through the canyon. There is also a Tram ride that takes you through and also into the wildlife area... More

We rented bikes and rode along a well marked paved trail that followed a small stream. We also passed other people walking, on Seaways and trams but I think the bikes were the best option to enjoy the scenery and fresh air. This easy bike ride straddled the Missouri and Arkansas border - which was a fun way to see... More

Dogwood Canyon is a great place for everyone! You can rent bikes and Segways, walk, or ride a tram. You can fish, have a picnic, stroll, and just take your time. Waterfalls, animals, and scenery. Miles of beauty.

While staying at the Wilderness Center of Big Cedar, we drove 16 miles to Dogwood Canyon Nature Park for the 2 hour Wildlife Tram tour. I believe Randy was our tour guide and did a fantastic job. He had a very pleasant sense of humor and made the trip very informative and relaxing! This time of year was starting to... More

This is a BEAUTIFUL park. We rented bikes and rode about 1/2 way through the park before we had to turn around and head back to catch our tram tour. This is not a circular trail, it is one way up and then turn around and come back the same way. Important to note that while the slope is gentle..there... More

We took the first tram of the day, it was our eight or nineth time at the park and this time the elk, bison and long horn steer was eager to be feed grain. They came very close to the tram. Beautiful animals. The falls and trout ponds are among the favorites. A special treat was watching them construct the... More

Dogwood Canyon is simply beautiful. They're still working on the new visitor's center which is a bit of a distraction but will be wonderful when open. There's plenty to do there. The bike/hike/walk path is very easy to do and the scenic spots and photo opps along the way are plenty. Be sure to get the one at the "Welcome... More
