When spring finally arrived in Missouri, it was a nice break from the chilling weather the winter brought along with it. Now that summer is almost here, we’re slowly but surely adding new places to our bucket list to explore once that picture-perfect weather finally arrives. There’s a nature park in Missouri that should be at the top of everyone’s lists, one that many Missourians will wind up spending all day at.
Dogwood Canyon in Lampe, Missouri is 10,000 acres of pure paradise. The nature park offers horseback riding, segway tours, delicious eateries, hiking trails, and much more.
Do you see what we meant when we said you’d spend all day there? Yeah.
For those who are looking to simply explore the nature park, single-day tickets will include access to the Dogwood Mill & Artifact Display, Canyon Grill Restaurant, Treehouse, Nature and Conservation Center, and several trails to hike on.
Prices for single-day tickets can be found and purchased here. Though, they can be upgraded to include a number of adventures.
Biking, fishing, horseback riding, segway tours, wildlife tram tours, and private tours are all offered separately from the single-day tickets.
Each one will take you behind the scenes of what makes Dogwood Canyon so incredible.
Dogwood Canyon is typically open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven days a week.
That’s right, you have plenty of time throughout the year to stop by and see what it’s all about. No matter what the season, your visit will be worthwhile.
Their famous grill is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and offers to-go for those looking to get their grub on.
You’re set when you visit Dogwood Canyon, they’ve got everything!
