General Links, Links By Area, Links by Interest

This section was created with the first time visitor in mind. It will be useful to others, but it does "over-explain" a bit. Suggestions about other useful links are always welcome. All links will open in a new window.

If you are brand new to the area, open up the Buffalo River Map to the right so you can identify the location of things discussed. A 150 mile long wild river park in mountainous rural county is different than many parks. It takes a very long time to drive from one end to the other (see the driving chart at the bottom of visitor planning guide). For example, if you wish to see Hemmed in Hollow, you probably will want to stay in Jasper or Ponca, you definitely don't want to stay at Buffalo Point.

Southwest Paddler Coverage of Buffalo National River -- This is a very nice job of covering the major areas of the river with the exception of the very upper river generally called the "hailstone" (experts only area). This is information for everyone else and well done.  (One error is that the BNR is run by the park service, not the forest service.)
