Buffalo National River

The Buffalo National River became America's national river stream in 1972. For generations before, it had been proclaimed as one of the country's greatest natural treasures. The free-flowing Buffalo National River meanders through the heart of the Ozarks for 150 miles before joining the White River south of Mountain Home. Natural wilderness, towering limestone bluffs, canoe outfitters, campsites, hiking trails, three wilderness areas, and cabin rentals are popular and available.

Buffalo Point, off Ark. 14, and Tyler Bend, off U.S. 65 (between Harrison and Marshall), are fully developed public use areas and there are several other primitive campgrounds. Gravel bar camping is permitted and the park is also the home of the state's only elk herd in Arkansas. 870-741-5443; http://www.nps.gov/buff/.
