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. Enjoy lunch at the Outdoor Cafe and shop the general store for a great selection of gift and souvenir items.

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 had a great bike ride, relaxing and very beautiful; I loved all the water features. If you are in the Branson area this is a great place to see. The restaurant is nice but a little high priced.

"High priced compared to what it used to be."

I understand that prices go up, but they now seem to charge for each little thing you do. The $9.00 senior entry fee only covers getting into the park. Once in, you can tour the small "museum" and the building where the gift shop is, and the tree house, but you cannot go into the park unless you pay additional. You have to pay to walk it or pay for a tram, bicycle or Sedgway. You must also pay to get in even if you just want to eat at the restaurant. This is a beautiful property, but I feel has become "cost prohibitive" for seniors or families. When we were there before all of the extra charges, we rode our own bicycles and toured the property having a wonderful time. Will probably not go there again.

We visited Thanksgiving week. The temps were cool, but we really wanted to do this tram ride. Ian was a knowledgable, great guide. We came upon the elk and buffalo upon entering the gated area of the park (which is actually in Arkansas). So neat to be so close to this animals. The property is just gorgeous … even in the blah season between fall and winter. I can only imagine this place is over the top when in full bloom. The treehouse is fun to explore. We did not dine here, but found all inside to be neat, clean, and interesting to check out. This would be my recommendation for a 'not to miss' when visiting the Ozarks.

To take what is already a beautiful and to enhance just a little more here, a little bit there only to make what could be a modern day paradise. Hidden away along the Missouri Arkansas border this windy canyon makes any time of year a great time to visit. I've painted this place many a times, and being a landscape artist who loves old bridges and waterfalls, this is the place to spend a little time. With the recent addition of the mill which I have yet to have a chance to paint a picture of, just makes it so much more the gem it is. I have yet to do the segways, or horseback riding, or biking, just hoofing it on my own two feet with my painting gear at the ready. It is truly a very picturesque area, and very well kept.
