Float the Buffalo River

Plan your trip

Embark on your river adventure with our canoes, kayaks, and rafts selection! Whether you're a seasoned paddler or a first-timer, there's something for everyone. Keep in mind that the majestic Upper Buffalo's allure may vary each year, influenced by the whims of rain and river levels. Stay updated and excited about your trip by checking the live river levels and temperature data thoughtfully provided by the USGS.

Glass containers and Styrofoam are prohibited on and near the river.  You must have a koozie for aluminum cans or plastic bottles while floating on the Buffalo River, so bring them or you can purchase at our store.  You are required to secure all your gear to the vessel, so you’ll need to bring your own straps or purchase them here.  Keep all of your gear in a waterproof bag or container. Trash or plastic bags often leak and are not “dry bags.” 


All-day floaters must reach the designated take-out landing by 6:00 P.M. (no later than 7 P.M.) Excessive lateness will be charged a late fee.

To make a reservation, give us a call at the store (870) 861-5522. A crew member will help take information for the date(s), boat(s), contact info, and credit card information for the cancellation policy. We do not run the card for a deposit but hold it for the cancellation policy.
