This park is very pretty with waterfalls, flowing brooks, manicured grass, and flowers. Nature gets a little help with pumps maintaining the falls and man-made ledges that help the brooks bubble in a little cascade. Unlike parks that are taxpayer funded, this one is privately...More

Beautiful walking and biking paths. Trams and segways if you’re not up to the exercise. Paved pathways with beautiful waterfalls and scenery. We are early 60s and walked over 6 miles. Leisurely pace and lots of places to stop and rest if needed. Saw many...More

We love to use Segways to tour new places and this was NO exception. We didn't want to just ride in a mini parking lot with a Segway in Branson- my husband found this instead. We made appointment and arrived 20 minutes early and they...More

The actual park itself is great. Very well kept, nicely paved paths, side trails to explore, beautiful streams with plenty of bridges and a restaurant to eat at after you have worn yourself out. The admittance fee is what is confusing to me and most...More

We took the Tram tour with Rob. He's a delight, and made the best of his ailing microphone. This park is gorgeous. It was sunny, but cold and windy so I suspect park visitation was low. This led to a feeling of having the place...More

We visited Branson for MLK weekend. We had also visited last April, when we stayed on-property at Big Cedar Lodge’s Wilderness Camp / time share, and when we first visited Dogwood Canyon. On that April trip we: - learned about the existence of Stag Moose...More

It was a cold and dreary day. We turned into the Dogwood Canyon Nature Park at 1pm because the rain was coming down so hard. Was hoping to spend an hour there then continue on our way to Eureka, AR. But it didn't take long...More

We were happy to take in the only sunny day out of the 8 days in Branson at the park. We had to pay $10 each to get in, to find out if you want to walk you need to pay an additional $10! Really...More

This is a must see park! There is a charge ($10.00) for admission, ($10.00)for walking the paved trail (about 6-8 miles) and $15.00 for a bike rental. Restaurant w/outdoor patio overlooking a waterfall. It’s worth the money and is an all day outing. Get there...More
