Buffalo National River Headquarters

Established in 1972, Buffalo National River flows freely for 135 miles and is one of the few remaining undammed rivers in the lower 48 states. Once you arrive, prepare to journey from running rapids to quiet pools while surrounded by massive bluffs as you cruise through the Ozark Mountains down to the White River. The National Park Service guide to the Buffalo provides lots of helpful information and maps and recommendations for your next adventure.
