Description

from Dogwood Canyon Nature Park
Dogwood Canyon Nature Park stretches across the Missouri-Arkansas border, just south of Branson, MO. The entrance is located on Missouri Highway 86, approximately 16 miles west of U.S. Highway 65.

Many opportunities await you within this amazing 10,000 acre slice of Ozarks paradise. Choose from Self-guided Walking/Hiking or Biking, Guided Widlife Tram Tours, Or, select the Adventure Pass that includes all of the above plus Self-guided Trout Fishing and spend the day with us.

Adventure Pass provides a great value when combining multiple activities at Dogwood Canyon. With your pass you can enjoy access to self-guided walking and biking (rental bikes or bring your own), self-guided Catch-and-Release or Catch-and-Keep trout fishing and the Wildlife Tram Tour when used during a single visit to the park.

Walking, Hiking, Biking
Our round-trip paved trail covers 6 1/2 miles and is relatively level. It guides you past beautiful limestone bluffs and tumbling waterfalls, over bridges formed of native stone or hand-crafted of wrought iron, and even a covered bridge of Amish construction. Our beautiful rainbow trout swim in clear spring-fed waters, easily visible as you pass by. We are a wilderness park and you may expect to see a variety of native wildlife, your best chance being earlier in the morning. Allow plenty of time to absorb the beauty that surrounds you at any season of the year. A printed guide will interpret the history of the canyon.

The Wildlife Tram Tour provides a comprehensive journey into this special property, taking about 2 hours. You will travel beyond the Glory Hole into the more rugged reaches of the canyon, cross the Arkansas border, and ascend some 300 feet to our bison, elk, and longhorn pastures. When possible, your driver will bring you very close to these majestic creatures while sharing facts about their heritage and habitat. Our specially designed open-air trams allow guests to ride in comfort across our many custom bridges and low water crossings. Experienced guides enhance your adventure with an informative glimpse into both natural and cultural history. As you cruise the canyon floor, you'll be introduced to Indian Burial Cave and Great Spirit Rock Shelter, where archaeologists made some fascinating discoveries. Our trams, as well as other facilities within the park, are accessible to our guests with disabilities. Please advise when making reservations.

No fishing license or trout stamp required.
Reservation confirmation required after purchase.

We took the 2 hour tram tour. Rob our driver was fun and loves his job. The scenery is amazing and viewing the animals is only available by tram. Recommend making reservations in advance. You can also hike, bike, or Segway the trail. Horseback riding and fishing also available.

"Terrible park!"

I thought it would be fun, not at all. Spent $21.20 to WALK through the park alone. Spent two hours walking then the trail ends, had to turn around and walk all the way back. Usually parks eventually circle back to the beginning! People on bicycles almost ran into me and the guided tours followed me the entire time. I kept having to stop and let them pass or walk through the brush. It was such a waste of time, the wasn't even any animals or anything. Big mistake! The Nature Center in Springfield is better and it's free

"Take The Bicycle Tour!"

Back after 2 years, this time rented the bicyles at 9:30 am with my wife and two kids, 15 and 11. Best way to see all of the sights at your own pace. Take plenty of cold water, the ride to the end of the trail is slightly uphill, the ride back uses less water. Views are outstanding, very peaceful, we would definitely have an annual pass if we lived in the area

While visiting family in Branson we decided to visit Dogwood Canyon nature park near Lampe Missouri . All the years I've been to Branson never had heard of this place, but saw it advertised on Facebook and it looked interesting. Beautiful place to visit ,lots of waterfalls. We took a two hour tram tour and it was definitely the way to go. Our guide Rob was the best! He was very entertaining and informative on the history and the nature in the park. You can rent bikes,or hike the trails, horse back riding, and Segway rentals. There is also a trout fishing, and a nice restaurant. There are miles and miles of paved trails to explore. If you're in Branson don't miss taking the short drive to visit this location ! BEAUTIFUL!

"Beautiful park/reserve."

We did the walking tour and kept the kids moving with the idea that they would see the bison and elk. We finally get to the back and realize you can't walk in that area. Very disappointing. It was a long walk back dealing with a tired and cranky 9 yr old. After doing the walk, i would recommend the bike tour as it is quite long, especially for smaller kids.
