I give this place 2 stars because it’s simply and overpriced man made nature trail. After paying $10.00 to get in you are only allowed to go through the mill and restaurant then you need to purchase a wristband for open of the activity’s offered....More

Dogwood Canyon is absolutely beautiful! We did the $10/adult admission which gave us access to the Mill, museum, restaurant, waterfall, tree house, gift shop and a short (but steep) hike to spot overlooking the bluff. The museum was full of Native American and Civil War...More

This is the place to go if you enjoy the outdoors. Small fee to enter the park. You first walk through a mill, then a long hallway of archives, and then into a restaurant that looks like the inside of a lodge, where you can...More

This is a beautiful setting but it was disappointing to pay $10 per person for admission to a "nature park" that advertised self-guided hiking trails and then have to pay an additional $10 per person to actually walk beyond the entrance area (restaurant, shop, treehouse,...More

I would contact them to ask about pets. 1.877.459.5687. We did see a few dogs on leashes, but there may be areas of the park they are not allowed due to the wildlife.

The walking path is paved and would be stroller friendly. There's lots of fish to see, waterfalls, there's a treehouse that would be fun to explore.
