Although we had a difficult time paying to ride our bikes and pull our dog in his carrier through a forest, we did it anyway ... the surroundings are absolutely beautiful. The trail parallels a creek running through the canyon and there are numerous waterfalls to enjoy the negative ions. I'm sure it's even more breathtaking when the dogwood trees... More

We have been coming to Branson for years, but have never stopped here. It's a bit off the beaten path, but well worth it! We rented bikes for around $22/person. The bikes were very comfortable, and it's an easy ride (around 6.5 miles round trip). The bikes have baskets and the cafe will pack a little picnic lunch for you... More

We did the open air tram tour. The Dogwood & Redbud Trees were in full bloom and it was a wonderful day! We crossed the Arkansas border to view pastures with bison, elk and wild turkey. Our guide would stop for photo shoots and to view the breathtaking waterfalls & creeks. It was a very enjoyable afternoon and we tell... More

Over spring break my family and I went down to Dogwood Canyon. There were 8 of us doing archery, and our instructor, Steve, said that it was a big class for him. You can tell they don’t get that many people for archery, but can I say that it was amazing. I had never used a bow before, and I... More

My husband and I did the hour long horse back trail. We enjoyed it greatly. The horses were friendly and the trail took closer to 2 hours than one. Well worth the money.

We did the tram tour. Perfect spring day in an open trailer narrated by our guide Mike. He gave us numerous opportunities to take pictures and did an excellent job telling us about the history of the area and pointing out points of interest. Beautiful park and the animals come right up to the trailer. They have a cafe, but... More

There are several tours available (walking, biking, segway and tram). We took the tram tour. Our guide Larry was very informative. The falls throughout the area were stunning. We enjoyed the up close experience with the with the animals in the nature preserve. There are fishing opportunities and the streams are well stocked with trout. It was a beautiful adventure.

Johnny Morris has enhanced this natural wonder beyond one's belief system. There is so much beauty to enjoy within his park which can be enjoyed by various means of travel available, i. e. walking, cycling, segway, jeep, tram. My friend and I chose the tram, a guided tour in a open air trailer with seats towed by a vehicle. We... More
