A 5-Star Family Destination


“Beautiful outdoor setting. Watch incredible actors bring the story of the Shepherd of the hills to life. Show begins with beautiful tribute to veterans and our great country. Intermission is a great time for families and folks to join the crew in a lively few rounds of square dancing – don’t worry if you’ve never done it before, the crew will be glad to teach you! Amazing experience and would definitely recommend as an iconic part of Ozark history.” – Google


“Had an absolutely wonderful time at the park. Great family fun, but the absolute highlight was the food in the brand new restaurant. I have a family of five and all our meals were excellent, but I definitely was the winner with the meat loaf. Highly recommend.” – Google


“Great show! You will laugh, clap and sing along with traditional and modern Cowboy tunes. Fun for all ages! Yeehaw! The food is very good too – this supper show is the complete package!” – TripAdvisor


“I love, love, love this ziprider! As I am gliding down the cable safe in my seat, I think of Gods glorious gift & look upon Branson. Smile’s, laughter all the way. We actually got a lady on this that is afraid of heights. I knew it would not be a bad experience for her. Ride is smooth, stop is smooth. Perfect!” – TripAdvisor

History of The Shepherd of the Hills

In the early 1900s, a Christian minister wandered into the Ozark hills, looking for better health, and found a community that would change his future. Wright camped on the very homestead you can visit today and wrote The Shepherd of the Hills based on the people he grew to love, and set in the hills that soothed his soul with their fresh, natural beauty.
