We started our adventure with a private fly fishing lesson as we had never tried this before. Tim was our instructor and was so helpful and patient. I think it was an excellent value $60.00 per person for the length of the lesson (a couple of hours)which was one on one. We then went on a private jeep tour with... More

Myself and a friend went out here for a small get away from the busy life vacation, and she told me about this awesome place. Was a tad tricky to find, but we did find it after checking up with the GPS. There was quite a bit of activities to do here, ranging from horseback riding with the cattles to... More

Very family oriented. Our family rented bikes and had a leisurely ride on flat paved paths through the park. The 6 mile round trip path goes along a river with several waterfalls and caves and bridges. Some people were walking but we recommend biking.

Well, I'm going to throw myself out on a limb and be different from the majority of other reviewers. Is it beautiful? Why yes it is. Think of a photo tour - plenty of opportunities to take nice pictures. Are there animals? You bet, similar to a drive through zoo ......elk, bison, deer, and trout (the unusual). Lured by food,...

Any Johnny Morris owned property is going to be high quality and this one is no different. The 2 hour tram ride is quite educational as the tour guides enjoy sharing all they know. I arrived 5 minutes before the 10 am tram was to leave, and they had room for one more. Yay me! The beauty of this park... More

We took the tram tour and it was very interesting. Be sure to make reservations ahead as they are nearly always booked. You can also walk the trail or ride a bike. They are adding a new restaurant and stables.

My wife and I tried this outdoor nature playground during a recent visit to deep southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas. We took the tram nature tour and saw trout, lots of waterfalls and even a family of mink playing in the stream. This was a fun time at a nice nature park.

This is well worth the trip. You can bring you own bikes or rent theirs. The bike ride is a easy to moderate ride. Not many hills. Beautiful scenery. I took the tram ride, which was really nice - since it includes a tour guide with lots of history and information about the preserve. The also offer horseback tours, jeep... More
