Months of reconstruction following April flood returns the park to former beauty.

LAMPE, Missouri –Dogwood Canyon is proud to announce its reopening on Saturday, September 30th. The park has been closed and under reconstruction since being hit by unprecedented floods in April. Water levels reached heights never before seen in the park’s 30-year history. Since then, the Dogwood Canyon team has worked tirelessly to restore its natural beauty and activities focused on connecting people with nature. Park visitors will experience crystal clear, trout filled streams, cascading waterfalls, ancient burial caves, unique hand-built bridges and bottomless, blue-green pools once again. All activities, with the exception of the Orvis Fly Fishing School, will be accessible including trout fishing, hiking and biking trails, horse stables, tram tours and the Education Center and Treehouse. Guests can also enjoy a full menu at the Canyon Grill as it resumes normal hours of operation.
