In 1972, the Buffalo River was named America’s first national river by Congress.
That status has helped preserve the river in all its unspoiled beauty for decades.
With its wildlife, high bluffs, and many waterfalls, it has become a favorite spot for vacationers and outdoor enthusiasts.
The Buffalo Outdoor Center is there to rent canoes and kayaks for float trips, camping sites for RVs, and cabins for more extended stays.
There are trails for biking and hiking, tours by zipline, and lodges for big events.
Located in Ponca, Arkansas, just an hour and a half’s drive from Northwest Arkansas, the Buffalo Outdoor Center will help you plan and enjoy your outdoor adventure on the upper Buffalo River.
