#2 of 22 in Wildlife in Missouri
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
A pristine slice of the Ozarks, Dogwood Canyon Nature Park encompasses over 4,000 hectares (10,000 acres) of rugged landscapes offering visitors seemingly endless opportunities for fishing, hiking, and biking. One of the region's major year-round recreational destinations, the park offers guided tram and Segway tours of a scenic canyon noted for its waterfalls and caves. You can also explore this wildlife-rich area at your own pace by riding the trails on your own or a rented bicycle. Or, combine a walk and a bike ride with self-guided trout fishing by purchasing an "adventure pass." Book your activities in advance by phone; the park charges an admission fee even if you enter on foot or bring your own bicycle. Put Dogwood Canyon Nature Park at the forefront of your travel plans using our Lampe itinerary builder.

  • At first, I saw the two 1 star reviews and thought that they were not justified because the park cannot control flood damage. I went to the web site which was down, I then tried to call the 800 number...  more »
  • Took the family to Dogwood Canyon only to find the park is closed for reconstruction. Recent flooding prompted massive reconstruction that is underway as of this report. No reopening estimate was seen...  more »

  • Dogwood Canyon is a wonderful place to spend the day.. whether you're after some seriously huge trout, if you're out for a bike ride or a nice peaceful stroll up the canyons beautifully winding paths you're in for quite a treat! Just remember to pack your wallet with 20s. We got an unexpected treat when I accidentally "borrowed" a privately owned bike when we were grabbing the bicycles we rented. About half way up the canyon the day manager showed up looking for the bike I was on. On the way riding back down and back up we got a bonus private tour..really made for a nice bonus!
  • Absolutely AMAZING and BREATH TAKING! Who cares if you have to shell out money to visit a wonderfully kept park!? The price is a small detail. My boyfriend and I went here on a date and wish to take our family several times throughout the year to see the park at all seasons. The food is wonderful and the restaurant's atmosphere and service is spectacular! The drinks were perfectly mixed! I hope they decide to reopen since the recent flooding. We have decided to make this place a monthly visit and are already missing it this year. Please, please reopen! Thank you!!!!!!!!
  • The price to walk the trail is a little high but it is a beautiful place to go hike around. Ensure that you go during a good time when you can see the waterfalls and can walk the entire path. I know you can also take a trolley through the trail but I thoroughly enjoyed the walk!
  • Beautiful relaxing and fun. Truly a beautiful place to spend the day. The multiple waterfalls, pools and bridges are relaxing. I found myself walking 6 miles and enjoying the exercise. They do also allow and rent bicycles, segways and tram rides. Fun and a fabulous place for photos
  • This is a very beautiful place to walk around. You can get married there also (which is a very beautiful layout I must say). The new area to eat and relax is so gorgeous, there is no way you couldn't enjoy this place with that beautiful waterfall. You can walk or rent a bike to see the water areas around. But, enjoy yourself, bring your blanket and have a wonderful pick nick. And, the tree house is one to see. The children would be wishing for one in there back yard. But, before you go, make sure you take the tram up to see those magnificent animals. You won't get any closers to nature , they come right up to the tram. I live in the area and definitely recommend it to anyone who loves the nature. The wind blowing through the trees, the sounds of waterfalls and just getting away from the city life. Ahhhh...love it :)
