This is a MUST SEE outing when in the Branson area!! Spectacular scenery in a natural setting/preserve. The tram tour is pricey, but worth every penny. It takes you through the canyon, with multiple stops for pictures and the different locations, then on to a private animal preserve that is not open to the public, only the tram riders. Spring,...

This is absolutely one my favorite places! It's beautiful year-round! Gorgeous views around every corner. The main trail is about seven miles round trip. You can walk it, rent bikes, or ride a tram. (Be sure to book early if you want to ride the tram.). You will see water so clear you can count the fish! Waterfallls abound! It's... More

Stopped in for a visit with my wife and we both enjoyed ourselves. We both look forward to another visit to see how things progress. The treehouse they had made with treehouse masters was very nice they have some nice artifacts as well ranging from stuffed animals, canoes Native American artifacts and western memorabilia. They had many activities you can... More

My husband and I were staying in Branson and decided to checkout Dogwood Canyon. We were not disappoint! The facilities are beautiful! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The entire experience was one we will talk about for years to come! We ate lunch at the restaurant, the service was great, excellent views, and delicious food! We also did... More

Spent part of the day hiking seven miles on hard surfaced trails over mostly flat ground. The trail follows a canyon up with a small trout filled stream meandering through the middle. The stream has many small waterfalls. The walls of the canyon are tree lined and have numerous waterfalls cascading down. It was beautiful now and can only imagine... More

The full walk was pretty far round trip, over 6 miles I think? So just be prepared! It's all paved though so it's very easy going. It was a little pricey for just walking and enjoying nature but worth it. There were waterfalls every all along the way and beautiful water! Great photo opportunities. You can rent bikes or ride...

WOW! It was a little cold today, but I am so glad we did this. There were several bald eagles just hanging out on the way to see the buffalo and elk. They are so beautiful. We watch the show Treehouse Masters on tv, I LOVE the fact that we were able to go in one of those from the... More

This was our third time to visit Dogwood Canyon in just 12 months. They've had a major overhaul since November 2015 and it well worth the visit! We've taken the nature tour (by tram) and it was so nice - the views and the animals, we have had lunch in the restaurant and it was very good. The treehouse built... More

(This was a family trip with adults--not teenagers or young children--but there wasn't an option to select that, so I marked "friends.") We saw a billboard advertising this place on our Thanksgiving vacation to Branson, and decided to check it out on Thanksgiving Day since our plans were open and the pictures looked magnificent. We had a wonderful time renting... More

This is the place to go if you want outdoors and nature! It has been well put together and the scenery is spectacular. On sight corn meal mill with a very knowledgeable curator that obviously enjoys what he does. The buildings and grounds are incredible, the treehouse is a must see! We didn't do the tram ride this time around,... More
