The ride through the park was peaceful and inviting. You can see many kinds of wildlife . If you camp, there’s an area for that. Great for family enjoyment.

We have done many different activities around the Buffalo River. It is such a beautiful place in the not so traveled part of Arkansas. Great hiking, site-seeing, and kayaking. We moved here because we love it so much.
