Small waterfall in Hurley, Missouri
If you are planning a trip to Branson Missouri sometime this year, try to make it in April or May when the Redbuds and Dogwoods are blooming. Give yourself an extra day for a side trip to a place called Dogwood Canyon Nature Park, a 10,000 acre landscaped park with lawns, streams, springs, waterfalls and wild areas. This beautiful park is about 25 miles southwest of Branson.
Walk-in admission to the park is $8.95 per person. This is good if you have a bicycle to bring with you. If not, my suggestion is that you pay $25.95 for the Tram Tour. This is the route my husband and went. The tram takes you on a 2 hour tour of the park, stopping at many picturesque places along the way. You get fantastic photo opportunities all along the way of waterfalls, picnic areas, the stream, a chapel, unique rocks and in April and May the beautiful flowers of the Redbud and Dogwood trees.
Dogwood Canyon crosses the border into Arkansas. The Arkansas area of the park is where herds of buffalo, deer and elk are kept. The tram tour includes a tour through the areas where the animals roam. There are many stops along the way for picture taking. For the more adventurous there are horse and Segway rentals. Fishing is encouraged.
