  • We arrived in late fall when the river was down so we opted to canoe the White River instead. We did however enjoy hiking along the Buffalo River, the Indian Rockhouse trail is really something to see...  more »
  • Me and a couple of good buddies went out and camped on the river for a few days. We hiked about 40 miles on the weekend and just enjoyed some quality time. It was beautiful and the weather was perfect...  more »

  • Even with low water and with the water being too cold to really swim, this is a spectacularly gorgeous river trip with aqua blue water and tantalizing swimming holes running its length. You'll pass by two rope swings and a cliff people jump off of. So fun! We lazed about and were on the water for about 6 hours. Things to note : your cooler needs to be strapped shut and your drinks must have coozies. We saw a canoe flip with almost no current, and they were glad everything could float!
  • Very nice, clean and fun.. We had a family vacation with 7 kids and 6 adults.. The river was perfect for kids to learn on.. Each child ranging from 8-15 had their own kayak. The river was very clean. Good current so we didn't have to paddle a lot.. I highly recommend this trip.. We used Buffalo outfitters for the cabins and the kayak rentals. They picked us up from the canins and dropped us back off.. They have 2 different places they had early pick up in case anyone got tired. We had 3 that got picked up amd dropped back off to cabins early. It was great, again, highly recommend booking a trip soon..
  • It was beautiful. The fishing/swimming area was very close to the camping sites, but we did not feel comfortable here. The campers, which were another race, made a point to stop and stare at us and there was absolutely no cell phone reception. If you do plan on making this trip, I suggest bringing walkie talkie to communicate between vehicles there aren't very many rest areas along the route we took.
  • The river itself is a thing of beauty yet with each passing year I make new discovers of the land around it as well. There is something for everyone , hiking, biking, canoeing, white water rafting, or just quiet contemplation as you stand at the base of a bluff and marvel at the power of water. There of memories in this park to last a lifetime.
  • It was my first time camping & I thought I wasn't the "camp type" but I freaking LOVED IT! It was beautiful, all our camp neighbors were nice, restrooms we're clean. It even stormed and I liked that. My only complaint I have is park ranger Jerry literally harrased us, made it a little uncomfortable. For that reason we won't go back there.
