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

We visited late October and the leaves were changing and it was absolutely beauitiful here. We walked a little and then we took the tram ride and we were so glad that we did. The guide did a great job of telling us the history and pointing out the different things to see. We stopped a couple of times along... More

The scenery in the canyon is gorgeous! The trees were changing colors and leaves were gently falling. There were waterfalls and ponds with rainbow trout. Clint was our guide and offered fun facts about the area. You do need to call ahead to reserve your spot. This is also true if you want to do one of their other activities.... More
