Buffalo Point Campground

Can anyone recommend the best spot to reserve at the Buffalo Point Campground? One with a view of the river....also....can you get cell service and do the showers have hot water?

Thanks for your input!!!

Haven't been to the campground myself, but found a couple of sites that have maps. The first one is an overview, the second has a few more details. quiltingpathways.com/arkansas/buffalo-point.… and www.uuclr.org/buffalo/Images/buffalomap3.jpg

Looking at the map, I'd stay away from the D loop as it looks furthest from the river. A and B are nearest the boat ramp. B is next to the pavillion and info station. C loop is nearest the river access trails, with E second nearest the trails. So long as the view isn't blocked by those pesky trees ;-) I'd say any of A, B, C or E on the loop parts closest to the river should have fine views. Since that part of the Buffalo area is extremely scenic, unless you're outright in the woods, I think it would be difficult to get a bad view.

I have yet to have a place in the state I can't get cell service. Even down in the valley nearest the waterfall at Petit Jean State Park has reception. Can't swear, of course, about Buffalo Point, since I haven't been there. Hopefully, someone will come along with more personal info.

I saw mention of the showers near the group camping area having hot water. So, maybe the others do as well.

Hope this at least gives you a point in the right direction.

Definitely get your reservation in as soon as possible. Now thru Labor Day will be pretty busy in that area, especially on weekends.

Have a good trip.

While you're in that area, if you're into hiking, I highly recommend the hike to Hawksbill Crag. Not a difficult hike at all, and the view is just beautiful. harrisonarkansas.org/hikingtrails_hawksbillc…

I've been at Buffalo Point dozens of times to put in or take out but never camped there. I emailed Wild Bill's, a reliable outfitter and here is his reply:

Some of the sites in A loop nearest the river have a river view and some of

the sites nearest the river in B loop have a river view

Cell phones don't work, there is a pay phone at the lower Ranger Station.

They have hot showers during the summer months
