This picturesque campground is nestled in Tyler Bend of the Buffalo National River. If the Army Corps of Engineers had had its way, Tyler Bend would be under water. Just downstream is the site of a proposed 1960s dam site on the Buffalo. Plans to drown the Buffalo River country sparked conservation efforts that created this beautiful national park.

What an amazing place! We had planned to go camping somewhere else and found White Rock mountain instead. It was just beautiful. We didn't hike many trails, but the few we did were nice, and the views make it so much better, I don't know why more people don't go here. It was really windy at night, and the water smelled like oil, so we drank bottled, but otherwise a nice place to be.

Breath-taking views from the top of White Rock. Didn't see anyone on trails in 2 days of hiking. Beautiful small waterfalls heard and seen throughout trails. East loop seemed alot longer than marked and was tricky at times. Great hiking and beautiful solitude. Definitely a must visit.

Stayed 2 nights in the rustic cabins and hiked the 2.1 mile rim trail. We spent 3 days riding motorcycles on the area ATV trails and geocaching. The forest offers some amazing scenery and White Rock offers some of the best views. I also recommend you check out the view from Burlington Mountain Road just south of the Mill Creek ATV Trails which is about 15 miles East of White Rock.
