About the River:

Buffalo National River is America's first national river (1972), the scenic Buffalo National River flows roughly 150 miles and offers boaters premier whitewater floating in the Arkansas Ozarks. One of the most popular Arkansas waterways, the river is flanked by soaring limestone bluffs, beautiful vistas and wilderness areas. It includes nearly 95,000 acres of public land along its corridor, where hiking trails lead to geologic marvels - springs, caves, waterfalls, natural bridges and box-like canyons. Fishing, rock climbing and wildlife watching (especially of the state’s elk herd) are major draws too. The landscape is popular with photographers, who like to capture pictures of historic homesteads, fall foliage, high vistas and other nature scenes that are among the most popular when it comes to sightseeing in Arkansas. Numerous outfitters (for canoeing, rafting, horseback riding and fishing) service the river, and there are several campgrounds, cabins, motels and other lodging options nearby. Buffalo Point off Ark
