Some of the most scenic views with a beautiful waterfall and lots to see and do. You can walk, take a tram, rent a bike, rent a segway or even do a carriage ride. The museum is hands on and the staff are amazing. We spent hours talking with the staff and they were friendly and knowledgable. They went out... More

Spent six hours surrounded by the beauty of Dogwood Canyon Nature Park. The cost is $10 per person and we took the two-hour tram ride which was $30 each. It was worth every penny. Our tram driver, Kelly, was a great guide as she took us over dozens of beautiful bridges, through beautiful scenery including many stunning waterfalls. We stopped... More

My husband and I decided to give it a try. We came early and walked around enjoying the parks beauty before heading back to their Restaurant. While sitting in the outside patio we enjoyed drinks, an appetizer and entrees. The food was fantastic. We highly recommended! We plan to come back with the kids and may just have to purchase...

Enjoyed the serenity and beauty of the park. They do offer a senior and veteran discount of 10% for entrance plus your charged an additional $10.00 if you just want to walk the entire park. The tram is also discounted 10% but is still $27 per person, takes 2 hours which really should be 21/2 hours as it does'nt stop... More

This is a beautiful park, lots to do, but the more you do the more it costs. It has an entrance fee of $10.00 each. We did the nature walk, which was another $10.00 each. If you want to fish, it is Entrance fee plus $15.00 per hour to fish. They have a tram ride, and I think that was... More

We were amazed and surprised from this beautiful place. You can walk, ride a bike, do segaway tours or tram tours with guide. Best place to visit and relax with family and friends. Amazing natural museum and fun time for kids and you can feed wild animals on your tram tour.

Read about this attraction when planning our trip. We found the place which entailed a scenic drive away from Branson. Our family rented bikes and rode the 6 mile round trip on a well paved pathway. There were waterfalls and views all along the way. Lovely spot in the Ozark's.

When considering a visit know there are three main aspects to explore: 1) Visitors Center - At the Start The visitors center, tree house, nature center and grill are all located in the three buildings by the...

Husband & I thoroughly enjoyed our short hike. We made it to marker 8, had our little dog, he enjoyed the sights as well. Got caught in some of the rain showers which did not deter our short adventure. It is a must see for all the beauty it offers. The waterfalls, the bridges, the bear dens..... We did the... More

The park is very Beautiful!! The prices to get in are not. Paid $10.00 to get into the restuarant and gift store?? The other attractions average about $15.00 an HOUR, PER PERSON. That's not very economical if you have family. The commercial are kind of miss leading.. Yes you can DO lots of things but you need Daddy Warbucks BANKROLL.... More
