This was our first time visiting Dogwood Canyon. It was absolutely beautiful! The entire bike and walking path is paved. The paths are pretty level with very minimal hills. Such a fun time with lots of places to stop along the way and enjoy crystal clear water and water falls! As far as pricing, it is on the expensive side... More

Not far from the man-made sites at the entertainment mecca of Branson (MO) is 10,000 acres of beautiful Missouri Ozark conservation area called Dogwood Canyon Nature Park. While the entrance to the park has been made very "human friendly" by the construction of really nice amenities such as restaurant, grist mill, and an environmental education center the vast majority of...

We enjoyed the park- just wish we would've planned more time for being there! We did the Segway tour with Kelly and she was great- it was a fun way to see part of the park and a new adventure for us. Next time we are going to do the private jeep tours!

Dogwood Canyon is a must see if you love nature and being outside. There are different ways you can see the Canyon -- ride the tram, ride a bike (you can bring your own), walk, or segway. The views are magnificent including waterfalls, trout streams, animals, beautiful chapel, etc. Well worth the expense. And what can be better than being... More

WOW! From the time you drive down into the Canyon, the place just keeps getting better and better. The mill, the museum, the gift shop, the tree house and the ride through the Canyon is excellent. This is a great educational site. Even the restaurant has very good food. You can't go wrong by spending and afternoon here.

If you want to pay to walk into an exhibit that has 3 items in a case and pay for access to thier restaurant and gift shop, this is the place. The admission fee only covers that. The museum is a joke, literally one hallway. If you want to walk the trails past that you will need to fork up... More

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
