This is by far one of Americas great National Parks. Plenty of campsites and outfitters. Anything from 2 hour to 2 week float trips through some of the most beautiful country in America. Located South of Yellville and Northeast of Marshall, there are many locations between Hwy 65 and Hwy 14 to enjoy many miles of f gentle flowing river... More

Stunning views, in a state that has the most amazing treasures. Visit any of their State Parks and you will be impressed at what this State has to offer. We are!

Hurry and go this fall for wonderful, colorful pictures and extreme scenic beauty. You must take your camera and try some of the restaurants along the way. Take the whole family.

We made a quick stop here- nice little walk down to the river to enjoy nature! A very quiet area to enjoy.

We spent our morning hiking down the ridge to the bottom of the waterfall was a nice fall morning crisp and cool enjoy the changing colors of the landscape. Parts of the hike whoops fairly steep and with the recent rain were fairly slippery about 4 miles round-trip good exercise 2 mile straight down then 2 miles straight back up.

We love this area missed the Fall leaves but the river is beautiful with the limestone bluffs. Wish we had time for a float 😳. Next time

I've been coming to the Buffalo River for almost 40 years and it is a must do for canoeing and floating. It's beauty is stunning and hardly be exaggerated. It really is a miniature Grand Canyon but is far more accessible and cheaper for that matter. You can bring the kids, but be aware that there are many steep bluffs... More
