We can we here during our Christmas visit with our grandchildren and their parents. Only got a mile into it when the 5yr olds said it was too long for them to walk, SO. Grandma and Papa came back in September with back pack and lunch. We walked the entire park,, beautiful scenery, lots of places to rest along the... More

This is an AMAZING park, BUT we're not happy with the service we got as we were leaving. I work, and look forward to quitting time as much as the next person. But if there's still a "customer" to be helped and its quitting time, the "customer" still gets helped. We arrived at 1:40 thinking the park was open until... More

An absolutely beautiful place. Been there several times, always a good experience. The Saturday evening chuck wagon dinner tour was better than I expected. A must see in the fall.

We had never heard of this place until being told this fall that it was one place we should not miss visiting--and how right they were! We took the 2-21/2 hour tram ride through the park. There are 13 falls and water crossings across the road. The water is so clear that you can see the trout swimming in the... More

This place is very big in area and we took tram tour to watch the nature park. They do have deer and elk feeding on the way back!!! Lot of waterfalls to enjoy the nature. Great fun alltogether. Must see when you visit branson.

We are not the shopping/shows type people who go to Branson. We like to be outside, walking, fishing, etc., so this was something we wanted to do providing the weather was good. We were so lucky - ended up having a day in the mid-upper 60's! We did the walking tour, but as others have mentioned, there are other options... More

The was a very scenic place. We did the nature walk but they also offer guided tours by tram. And they have segways. Everywhere you looked you could see natures beauty. My 2 yr old liked seeing all the fish. The chapel was gorgeous. They also have great food must try the elk burger it was fantastic.

Beautiful place, with many ways to explore. Tram tour, bike, hike, Guides were knowledgeable and comical. Plenty of opportunity to stop and stay for awhile and enjoy the beautiful canyon and all it's inhabitants. Waterfalls were amazing, tram tour took you up close and personal with feeding animals.

Great place to hike! You miss some if the best waterfalls if you stay on the tram car! Best one I think is by the chapel. Fish galore! So glad we got the one and only stroller!

We took the tram tour through the park. What a beautiful place! We had a guide that was knowledgable, friendly and funny. Because I am partially handicapped, I was unable to walk the beautiful trails, but was able to see so very much from the tram. There is some construction going on, but it was still a peaceful and enjoyable... More
