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 went for drive out of Branson and saw the sign for this. Took a quick detour and were glad we did. Although it was too cold to hike the canyon the lodge area was beautiful. The staff was very nice and informative about the place. We definitely want to come back to see the canyon, fish, horseback ride, see the animals and just enjoy the natural beauty of the canyon. Glad the Bass Pro guy made it into something that all can enjoy.

We visited Big Cedar Mt Lodge and Dogwood Canyon for our 41st anniversary. Dogwood Canyon is just beautiful. Lovely, wide paved walks throughout and dozens of steams and water features. We rented bicycles and rode the 6.5 mile trail. Then we rented Segways and got a guided tour through the park. What fun! We were there in November and the weather was mild and pleasant with jackets. Great couple fun, great family fun, great place.
