This was an amazing trip! The park was beautiful and the guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. The park was an area that was improved with offering the view of creeks, caves and wild life. We had a wonderful lunch in the restaurant. There is a museum both in the restaurant as well a guest center.

My husband and I recently spent a day at Dogwood Canyon Nature Park and look forward to visiting again. The scenery and facilities are stunning, and the restaurant's food and view would be hard to top! We visited on an overcast day with rain threatening, but took the tram trip into the canyon and thoroughly enjoyed it! Our driver, Rob,... More

We were planning on revisiting dogwood canyon but wanted to know if they were affected by the recent torrential rain. We called and we're told that it was not open today and ALL reservations for the month of May had been cancelled so that the damage there could be assessed. What a shame! Damage must be extensive.

This was our first time at Dogwood Canyon Nature Park. I would recommend taking a tram tour or renting a bike. There is a lot to see and do and the grounds are kept up very nicely. If you take a tram, call ahead and make a reservation. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend visiting... More

Can't say enough about how nice this park is. The tram ride was just pure excellent, and our guide Todd went over the edge being personable and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed seeing the elk, bison, and longhorns. The care that had gone into making the park an educational resource was quite evident.

The Tram perhaps is a... More

We took the trolley tour. The driver was friendly and informative. The tour took about 2 hours. Recommend you call ahead for reservations. Beautiful views and water falls. Get to see a lot of big trout. Everything was very clean and well maintained. We also did the walking trail and did the 1.2 mile side loop. It was very steep... More

This is the most beautiful private park we have ever seen. The grounds are immaculate. There is so much to do you could spend a day there. Great for kids and picnics. There is a working grist mill and a museum. They have amazing trout streams for fishing. We took the wildlife tram tour which is the only way to... More
