I’m in love with Dogwood. This was our first visit, and I’m certain we’ll be back. While it was more expensive than hiking at a state park, it was worth every penny of the $60 for our family of five to enter. Show your Silver Dollar City ticket and you’ll get a few bucks off. They also offer a veteran discount. The grounds are immaculate, but yet you can take off on more primitive trails, too. We walked the entire park -about seven miles. We saw at least five bald eagles (likely more), a pileated woodpecker, a heron, and a family of deer (up close and personal). We thought we’d be able to see the bison and elk at the trail’s end, but were disappointed to learn you can only go that far on the tram. Ended our hike with a stop at the most amazing treehouse.

This is a beautiful nature park we stumbled on. I highly advise getting your tram tour tickets early like we did because they sell out fast. Our guide was David and he was amazing, you need to ask for him. You can easily spend all day here. its great for the whole family. honestly!!

Great destination as part of our Couples Trip in Branson. We chose to ride the tram for a 2 hour tour. The driver narrated the entire trip with several stops for photos and a chance to see nature. Great for families as well. We tried to do the private jeep tour but our group was too large (8 people). Beautiful facilities include displays, Tree House, Restuarant & learning center. Highly recommend.

Tours for up to three guest per vehicle are offered year-round. Our guide, David, provided two full hours of interesting fact regarding the local flora and fauna. As the weather was cold and rainy we opted for an enclosed Jeep which provided us with a warm, comfortable trip. Other guest were left exposed in open air trams which are not afforded the opportunity to visit the off-road trails with multiple creek crossings. David took special care to show us many special features of the park all while demonstrating infinite patience with our questions. The price of the tour is the same for one passenger to three. Ask for David. And ask how he came to be in rural Missouri from Ohio. Fascinating story.

Had such a great time yesterday morning. There were 6 of us and we called the day before to reserve seats on the tram tour. It sells out so be sure to plan ahead. David was great. Funny and informative with a very pleasant kid and adult friendly attitude. Was a great couple hours and make sure you eat lunch out there as well.
