Breathtaking, even in the cold.

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... read 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

We visited with two small children and a large dog! It was beautiful! The park was so clean and everything was kept up nice. It was an easy walk even with a 25lb kid on your back! It was pricey but we knew that going into it and we would come back and gladly pay the admission price again next... More

This is the second time I've been to Dogwood Canyon and the new restaurant adds a lot. The food itself is nothing special, but the ambiance and view of a waterfall a great. We took the tram tour and it's worth it to see the entire the park and get some information you wouldn't pick up by hiking it on... More

Loved the changes that have been made to this gorgeous canyon, everything fits right in with the scenery. I would encourage you to take the tram ride first to get the history of the place, we had Larry for our guide and he was great! We are looking forward to going back in the spring when the dogwoods are blooming.... More

So pretty! It was $10 per person to get in and then $10 per person for the walking trails. Which is the only reason I gave it 4 stars because I felt the price was a little high. But we will definitely go back! The restaurant here is amazing! Definitely eat there!

There is no doubt that this place is really nice, and especially the canyon itself. The bulding as well, but they're a bit touristy. We rented bikes and had a really great trip. I guess we spent about 2hrs on the whole thing, but that all depends on you own desired pace. Unfortunately the place is very expensive, and it's... More

My wife and I escaped the glitz and crowds of Branson to tour this excellent park. The drive is about 45 minutes from Branson, but well worth the effort. There is a pretty hefty price for a walk in the park $20 each, but that was well worth it. We spent about 4 hours walking the 7 miles of there... More
