I really enjoyed the tram ride through Dogwood Canyon. They made sure we were able to see all the animals up close, but safely. They also provided adequate photo stops. It really is a beautiful place, and well worth a visit.

What a wonderful day. First time at Dogwood Canyon. We took the tram ride. What a breathtaking view. The animals and wildlife was abundant. Even though the tram may seem a little pricey, remember how much you are willing to pay at all the "shows"...More

Everything at Dogwood Canyon was spectacular! Very beautiful property. We took the tram tour. It's great for those not able to hike/bike the park property and you can see bison, elk and long horn cattle up close. Some of it seems too perfect-artificial almost. It's...More

Overall a great family outing. The location is off the beaten path to say the least. If you're from out West this is not your gigantic canyon, here nature whispers. The cost is a little on the expensive side but that being said this is...More
