We did the self-guided walking option through the park and really enjoyed it. I was a little leery of a place asking us to pay to walk through nature, but it looks like the money is being well spent on the grounds- the waterfalls and trails are gorgeous. I liked the way they marked all the spots of special interest.... More

By far the best money we spent on our entire trip. I was leery about going there, since it was so pricey and didn't really explain the layout very well on the website. Thankfully, we ran into another family who had just been the day before, and they were the ones who talked us into going. So glad they did.... More

We took our two girls on a 2 hour tram ride through Dogwood Canyon, crossing multiple river crossings while experiencing historic landmarks, breathtaking waterfalls and picturesque scenery. I would highly recommend this experience. you can rent bikes, Segways, take the tram or go on a Jeep tour, all are different priced.

It's about 6 miles one way if I remember correctly. Easy walk and so beautiful. Waterfalls are gorgeous and the trees around really bring nature alive. It was very hot the day we were there but so worth the walk. If I lived there I would have season tickets.

We went to try something different from Branson area and headed here for the first tram ride of the day at 10 am. We toured it on a Wednesday. This place is quite breathtaking, and so peaceful. We were allowed to feed the trout and our guide put feed out for the deer, the bison and the long horned cattle.... More

We drove out to the canyon from Branson. It took about an hour because we went down the wrong round. We got to the canyon and were debating whether to ride the tram at $35 each or Walt the 6 mile trail for $15 each. We asked if we could walk after the tram ride for free. They told us... More

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
