This was my first trip and I can't wait to go back. If you like the tranquility of nature you will love this place. You can hike, bike, fish (catch & release), take a tram or jeep tour, horseback tour. You have many options available. I did the tram tour. The guide was very knowledgeable. We made several stops and... More

Our guide, Tony, was great. He was very knowledgeable and kind of funny too! We walked about a mile to/from the chapel while waiting for our tour to start. It was a nice walk and gave us an opportunity to photograph the waterfall and the covered bridge. I highly suggest the tram if you aren't in real good physical shape.... More

Dogwood Canyon is beautiful. I recommend renting bikes and riding through the park. We walked last time we visited and had to keep moving off the path so the bikes could go by. We rented bikes this time and enjoyed the experience more. Only critique would be checking in. The signing the waiver/payment process took forever.

We enjoyed the tram ride through the nature park.Our guide explained things very well and made frequent stops to enjoy the waterfalls,fish and animals in the park.It would be nice to have water on board as 2 hour is a long time without a drink in the heat.if you don't have your own.

I cannot believe we just now found this secret treasure in the woods. It is a little pricey, but isn't everything that is owned by Bass Pro? This place allows a pleasant relaxing ride for outdoor lovers. You will get up close and personal with elk, deer, buffalo, and trout. We will be returning!

The one and only Johnny Morris (Bass Pro Shops) bought some 11,000 acres, then presented them to a foundation he formed so they can remain a part of the wild forever. This preserve is already ideal, but is getting even better. Under construction are horseback riding stables, a grist mill, general store and gift shop, showers and other areas which... More

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
