My wife and I, and my brother and his wife, went to Dogwood Canyon Nature Park on Monday, October 7th, 2019. The park is beautiful. We hiked and when we returned from the hike we went to the restaurant to eat. There was a short wait. My wife and I went to the gift shop. We picked out two T-shirts for our grand children but were called to go eat. We put the T-shirts back on the rack to go eat. When we finished eating we had a reservation for the tram tour. We returned from the tour at approximately 3:00pm and went to the gift shop to pay for the T-shirts. The rack was gone. My wife asked a lady behind the counter what happened to the rack. That woman seemed to want to help us find the shirts but another woman, behind the counter as well, said the T-shirts were not selling well so they were taken to the back. My wife asked if they could either go get the rack or let her go pick up those two T-shirts and that woman said she would NOT help. One of the woman wanted to help my wife but the other was RUDE and was not willing to help. This would have taken less than 5 minutes to my a "customer" happy! This is the type of CUSTOMER SERVICE no one wants to encounter. This staff member ruined our experience and we will never returned to Dogwood Canyon. We will tell our numerous Facebook friends to avoid this Park.

We spent the day hiking the main trail and one small other trail. It helped that the weather was perfect but the place is beautiful. The paved hiking trail is close to flat and the scenery is fantastic. We also had lunch at the grill - sat outside and had a very enjoyable experience The only drawback would be the price. However they evidently use the funds very well for maintenance and upkeep Highly recommended!

My teenage son and I took our first father/son trip to Branson, and we extended our visit to include a Segway tour in Dogwood Canyon Nature Park. This was a top contender for best activity of the entire trip. The facilities are top notch, and the park itself is beautiful. They offer hiking, horseback riding, a tram service, bike rentals, and of course the Segway tour, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Our tour guide David was very professional and fun, helping take photos on various stops along the route. If you're traveling to Branson, take a side trip about 35 minutes away and visit the park. You won't regret it!
