One of the best nature parks in the country

While we were in Branson I was trying to find a good park to go to in the Ozarks. Most of the recommended ones were over an hour away, so I looked at a map and saw this place and... read more

While we were in Branson I was trying to find a good park to go to in the Ozarks. Most of the recommended ones were over an hour away, so I looked at a map and saw this place and decided to Google it. Their website looked interesting and it was only about 40 minutes away, so we decided to... More

This is a great place to visit for anyone who enjoys being outdoors. The park offers many activities, from hiking and biking to guided fishing tours (though it is strictly catch and release). Many of them are well suited to families with kids. We had a tram tour through the canyon, enjoying multiple streams and waterfalls, quite a few of... More

I wish I could live there. Beautiful place. I recommend renting a bicycle for the self guided tour. 6 miles round trip. Gentle slope. Wonderful way to connect with nature.

If you love nature, biking, a little hiking then this is the place for you. We absolutely loved the bikes we rented. Hiked up one of the trails. The fish at the end of the trail and biking into Arkansas was wonderful. Finished with a buffalo burger and elk sausage soup. Would recommend a day at the park. Yes some... More

Was very pleased with the entire experience. We bought tickets and went on the 2 hour tour through the canyon. Our guide was very informative. We saw bison, white tail deer, elk and long horn cattle. These animals were right beside us as they feed them. Saw beautiful waterfalls also. We ate at the restaurant and it was great. Home... More

So we were charged $10/person at the gate which I thought was going to allow us to walk the trail, but you had to pay another $10/person to walk the paved trail. $40/couple? Don't think so. It was a beautiful place, but wish the charge to walk the trail was not so high.

We took the tram ride and our driver, tony was great. beautiful scenery and seeing the animals up close and personal was certainly different. A bit pricey but the veterans discount helped. Recommend coming back in march when the dogwoods are actually in bloom! Can't imagine how pretty that would be.

We stayed in a cabin very close to the park and saw the signs so decided to check it out. Not knowing what there was to do, we did the 2 hour driving tour and was not disappointed. Although the tour is probably the most 'touristy' thing you can do there, you learn alot about the park, see quite a... More

If you love nature you will love this area. We rented bikes and road the trail. It is a 6 mile nature trails that has water falls along the way. You can rent bikes here for $15. They really have some nice buildings with nature facts in them. Well worth your time.
