See the forest in an enchanting new light as you explore Branson’s newest and brightest nighttime mystery. When the sun sets, the forest comes alive with history and the unexplained. This immersive night walk sits on the former homestead of the Owen family, settlers in the late 1870s who soon disappeared without a trace, on the Winter Solstice. Ozark Nights takes you back in time to what the family encountered. You adventure includes:

  • A 3/4 mile paved self-paced walk along an illuminated and immersive trail
  • A chance to enjoy time around our Firepits, sharing stories and making S’Mores
  • Appetizers, refreshments, drinks and S’Mores kits are also available for purchase in the firepit areas
  • Getting closer to the beauty of the Ozarks’ woods – and the mysteries they hold
