RV Parks along the Buffalo River, Arkansas

RV Parks along the Buffalo River, Arkansas
The Buffalo River flows through a remote region of Ozark Mountains in northern Arkansas, and many stretches of river are reachable only by hiking or paddling. That makes the occasional RV park on the water's edge popular draws with visitors intent on enjoying the river. Given the unspoiled nature of the area, numerous trails for hiking and mountain biking exist. Fishing and canoeing can be done on the river, its tributaries and surrounding lakes.

White Buffalo Resort

White Buffalo Resort is at the confluence of the Buffalo and White Rivers. RVs of most sizes can be accommodated on full-hookup sites (30, 50 amps) that border the river, making for easy fishing and canoeing from the campground. Pets are allowed if kept on a leash. There are showers, a laundry room, bathrooms and picnic facilities. The Blanchard Springs Caverns, with its natural caves and underground formations, are within a 45-minute drive.
