DOGPATCH USA | Exciting news about Johnny Morris' new nature park

Amy and I were able to capture some great pictures from the side of the road using a telephoto lens of the long abandoned Dogpatch USA theme park.

Exciting news has developed about the future of this beautiful piece of property and I'm here to give you what we know.

Johnny Morris is well known as the legendary mastermind behind such endeavors as Bass Pro Shops, Wonders of Wildlife, Dogwood Canyon, Top of the Rock and much more.

His newest project at the site of the old Dogpatch USA is called Marble Falls Nature Park. Located just south of Harrison, Arkansas and around an hour from Branson, Missouri, this park is sure to be absolutely remarkable!

    We took our 5 daughters when they were young and had the best time ever. Will try and go when the new place opens

    Took our kids many years ago. They were 3 and 6 and now in their 40’s. Still have pictures of it. Went to the fishing pond and the boys caught fish and they were cooked up right there and you got a meal. Had a family photo in the Dogpatch jail.
    Looking forward to it opening again and to see what Johnny Morris can do.

    Back in the day, I was a ski instructor at their ski slope. We lived in Conway AR and drove up there each weekend. I can still picture our kids snowplowing down that little hill. Great memories.
