Getting to Know Wolfe Creek Preserve – Teeppee Tower

At Wolfe Creek Preserve, we feature a variety of eco-adventure options ranging from a single zip line experience to encompassing tours that trek across the entirety of the course. And while we have become one of Branson’s hottest new attractions since opening in May, 2010, we have done little to highlight the individual aspects of the course. That is why we would like to take the time to feature in-depth the numerous zip line towers featured on property, immersing potential visitors into the story of Wolfe Creek Preserve and the humble beginnings that birthed Branson Zipline and Canopy Tours.

The affectionately titled ‘Teepee’ tower is the starting point of our Ozarks Xplorer Canopy Tour. The name stems from the remnants of a teepee that was found when the property was first purchased long ago. The original owner of the property, Isaac Wolfe, used the teepee as a temporary shelter while he built his homestead and his son, Eli, continued to use the area as a sort of escape years later. Seeing as the original teepee served as temporary shelter and Branson Zipline prides itself on the same ideas of natural preservation as those that used the land before Isaac, it was only fitting that the beginning of the course pay homage and represent this unique, historical aspect of Wolfe Creek Preserve

Those that would like to experience our Ozarks Xplorer Canopy Tour, or any of the other zip line options featured on Wolfe Creek Preserve,  can easily learn more about each experience and secure reservations online at

Also, be sure to check out our image gallery for numerous other images of the course and our gift shop, Wolfe Creek Station.
