Through an Act of Congress passed on March 1, 1972, the Buffalo River was named as the first ever National River in the USA. It flows through four counties from west to east spanning a little more than 150 miles. The river starts from the most elevated areas of the Boston Mountains and ends at the White River.

Along the Buffalo River, interesting rock formations including sandstone and limestone bluffs, caves, waterfalls and sinkholes embellish the area to name a few. The banks of this iconic water landmark are also home to more than 300 species of insects and aquatic flora and fauna. Arkansas? only elk herd ? the largest known species of deer in the planet ? can also be found within the confines of the river?s environs.

Outdoor lovers will find the surroundings of The Buffalo River an exciting place for camping, canoeing, whitewater rafting and fishing, although environmental restrictions are strictly implemented.
