We had a great time, just wrong weather! The day we scheduled was very cold but the staff was great, blankets were provided on the tram ride. Our entire group can’t wait to go back in warm weather for hiking and fishing! Dining was fantastic, museum part was a really great experience also, along with the shopping.

I can't say enough about how beautiful and calming and good for your soul this place is!! Every time I go, I learn something new. My guide this time was Ian, he was extremely informative and even pointed out things that my other guides didn't. I know there is so much to cover in a short time, I always take the tram ride. As in the other reviews , we saw Elk. Bison, Long Horned steers, Bald Eagles, Golden Trout, etc. I have taken different family members every time I come and they always walk away amazed and want to return. Maybe will try the bikes or walking , but since we went Jan 6th, it was cold and windy. Much appreciated the blankets on the tram. I will go here every time I go to Branson!!

We have been here a few times, but nothing compares to our visit in December. We took the tram throughout the park. Loved our guide who made every effort to make sure we wee all comfortable. Saw the bison, long horned cows, and the elk. We got to view an eagle. Just Beautiful and relaxing. We hadn't been here for about 8 yrs, lots of updates and great things to do. The Tree House we watched being constructed on tv and didn't disappoint. Well worth your day to visit!
