Dogwood Canyon Nature Park

Dogwood Canyon Nature Park is one-of-a-kind experience for nature lovers and adventure seekers of all ages. Covering 10,000 acres of pristine Ozark Mountain landscape, the park has miles of crystal-clear trout streams, dozens of cascading waterfalls, ancient burial caves, unique hand-built bridges and bottomless, blue-green pools.

Acquired by Bass Pro Shops’ founder Johnny Morris in 1990, Dogwood Canyon is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and protecting the canyon’s natural plant and wildlife environment. The foundation promotes environmental conservation by maintaining the park and providing the public with an unspoiled setting for exploration and the enjoyment of various outdoor activities.

We have walking, biking, and hiking trails, horseback riding and cattle drives, private jeep tours, guided trout fishing, self-guided trout fishing, and our 2 hour Wildlife Tram tour! The tram tour will wind you through the canyon floor, past towering bluffs and waterfalls, making a stop at the Glory Hole(a magnificent blue-green pool where some of our largest trout reside). Then across the Arkansas border where your tram may mingle with herds of American bison, elk, white tailed deer and Texas longhorn. We also specialize in Weddings and host numerous weddings throughout the year. The scenic beauty of the park will provide the perfect setting for your special day. Choose from cascading waterfalls, a cozy chapel, an intimate pavilion, or a rustic Chuck wagon site as your location for your special day. We can accommodate wedding ceremonies and receptions for 2 guests up to 100 guests. Our Hope Wilderness Chapel is a rustic little replica of churches from the 1800’s. The chapel perfectly complements the canyon’s peaceful environment and is available for weddings, vow renewals, elopements, receptions, and special events.
