This 2 hour tram ride had beautiful water falls, flowing creeks, Bison, Elk, Longhorn Steer. There was stops along the way to get out and feed the trout, and to stretch your legs. Not to worry, there were bathrooms too.

We rented bikes and leisurely road the path to Arkansas and back. Enjoyed the surroundings immensely! So many interesting facts and sites along the way (good map with explanations). Beautiful waterfalls, pools, chapel, grassy and garden areas. Brought our own picnic lunch. We saw fish but I wouldn't say fishing would be very good. Next time I'd probably do a... More

We spent a day at Dogwood Canyon Park. We rented bikes and rode to the back of the park. That took about 2 hours with the family. We went at a leisurely pace. Upon our return, the kids went horseback riding. They didn't seem overly excited upon their return. For the money there were a lot of other things we... More

First, I wish I could be here for the different seasons. It has to be spectacular! Summer is green, blooming, and the canopies of the tree covered landscape cool the heat. It is a beautiful place, an opportunity to get off the beaten path and experience the beauty of Missouri/Arkansas. I think if I were to go, I would definitely... More

Dogwood Canyon is well worth the drive from Branson! Serene...We only had time for a short walk and the tram ride. If we are in the area again, we definitely will return. We saw trout, golden trout, bison, long horn cattle, and elks with babies...all up close, but not too personal! The guide was very knowledgeable about both the nature... More

We took 4 kids ages 8-12 horseback riding here. The stables were so clean and the horses were so sweet and tame. It was a wonderful 1 hour trail ride and the cowboys that run the stables are top notch. Definitely recommend!

Rented bikes, including 2 kids on tandem 3rd wheel behind us. Had a great ride. A bit spendy, but we really enjoyed it. The golden trout at the end of the trail were fun to watch.

My family and I were immensely impressed by the beauty and serenity of this park. It was well worth the drive from Branson. At first we were a little reserved about spending extra money to see a nature park when there were other free options available in the Branson area. However, trust me, it was well worth it. We look... More

Beautiful place to explore! Or get married! You can bike, hike, ride horses, fish, tram, sedway nature, for a fee. There's waterfalls, creeks, trout, fish, snakes, wildlife. If you want to see elk, deer, longhorn cattle, or bison, you must take the tram, as we did, into a protected area. Well worth the ride and is about two hours long.... More

We had a family vacation in Branson, MO, at the end of July 2014. When my husband and I had visited there in October of 2013, we ventured to Dogwood Canyon upon the recommendation of a fellow Gideon, and we loved it so we wanted to return with our family. For a fee of $29 per person, cheaper for children,... More
