(700+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 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!
  • 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 :)
  • 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
  • You pay to get in, then you have to pay again if you want to hike. Then you pay to eat. I mean, I'll give them that on because duh. But seriously, it's Arkansas. The land of 10,000 free, gorgeous hiking trails. You're telling me I have to pay to enter this park (State parks are free) and then pay AGAIN to hike?! Not that any of it is natural; it's all completely artificially scaped and created.
  • Beautiful place, I want to go back. Had no idea we had something like this so close to us. Everyone should experience this!!!
