Buffalo National River

Named by National Geographic as one of the Top 10 Underappreciated Parks, the Buffalo National River is one of the few remaining unpolluted, free-flowing rivers in the lower 48 states offering both swift-running and placid stretches. The Buffalo National River encompasses 135 miles of the 150-mile long river.

It begins as a trickle in the Boston Mountains 15 miles above the park boundary. Following what is likely an ancient riverbed, the Buffalo National River cuts its way through massive limestone bluffs traveling eastward through the Ozarks and into the White River. The Buffalo National River has three designated wilderness areas within its boundaries.

Along its scenic banks, you can find everything from lush forests and sparkling waterfalls to massive limestone bluffs and jaw-dropping rock formations. There are even more than three hundred caves in the area. Besides its outstanding beauty and the countless ecosystems that it encompasses, Buffalo National River offers a plethora of outdoor recreation opportunities.

Hiking and horseback riding along its banks are a treat, while kayaking or canoeing down the river is the best way to see all the stunning sights up close. On top of this, the area is home to some interesting historic sites, such as ancient bluff shelters and terrace village sites once used by Archaic Indians, and old cabins which housed early settlers.
