  • Absolutely beautiful. We stayed at Ozark Campground in Harrison AR. 25 yards from our campsite was a beautiful stretch of the river that meanders along an 85ft bluff. Deep sections of the river offere...  more »
  • I've been coming here since age 12! I love the area, the terrain, and the river in general! Definitely worth a visit!  more »
  • Love this part of the river. We're headed to Tyler Bend tomorrow to see another part of the river. Glad they didn't damn it up!  more »

  • Are you kidding me...Just check out some photos of the gorgeous river. I floated a small section with my family and all loved the day from my 3 year old up. Swimming off the shores during stops to fishing for small mouth bass.
  • Hands down the best canoe spot in Arkansas. It's beauty stuns me every time. I encourage people to explore on your float. I followed a small trickle of water coming down a rock and found a big waterfall in the woods. :)
  • Absolutely gorgeous! I now understand why it's a National River way. Highly recommend renting a canoe or kayak and paddling this river.
  • Clear water, refreshing, peaceful. However the walk/drive down area needs to be reworked. Some cars had difficulty getting back up the hill after dropping of canoes
  • The Buffalo River is one of the cleanest rivers in the US, and is the first National River. There are hundreds of miles of hiking and horse trails for your outdoor adventures. The river is great for floating, as it has great beaches and campgrounds along the way. The scenery is breathtaking, with massive bluffs and small caves. If you are horseback riding, I recommend your horse be shod or wear boots as the trails are very rocky. If you love the outdoors, you will love the Buffalo.
