Things to Know Before You Go

Cleaning & Sanitation
Dogwood Canyon Nature Park is implementing enhanced cleaning regimens throughout the park. Our team members will be continuously cleaning high-touch surfaces including benches, railings and restrooms.

Social Distancing
Physical distancing among team members and guests is important. Throughout the park, please remember to maintain a safe physical distance between your party and other parties.

Face Masks
Due to space restrictions, all guests who book a Wildlife Tram Tour will be required to wear a face covering that covers their nose and mouth while on board the tram.

There are exceptions to this order, which include (but are not limited to):

  • Children under the age of 3
  • Children ages 3-11 are strongly encouraged, but not required to wear a face covering, while under the direct supervision of an adult
  • Persons with a health condition that prohibit them from wearing a face covering
  • Persons who are hearing impaired, or someone who is communicating with a person who is hearing impaired, where the ability to see the mouth is essential for communication
  • Persons consuming food or drink

If a guest has a medical condition that prevents them from wearing a face covering they should go to the Gift Store and ask to speak to a supervisor.


Dining Modifications
For everyone’s health and safety, all guests wishing to dine at the Canyon Grill Restaurant or explore the Mill or Museum must consent to contactless temperature scans before entering the Dogwood Canyon Mill and Canyon Grill. If a member in your party registers a temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, anyone who rode in the same vehicle as that guest will need to reschedule their visit for another day. Our culinary team will have their temperature checked prior to the beginning of each shift. Dining and seating areas have been modified to provide six feet distance between parties.

Tree House
For the health and safety of our guest and due to the high tactile environment the Treehouse Master's treehouse is closed.
