Yes! Found where my husband and son spend deer season! Lots of tent camping sites on the river. Lots of hook ups for your campers. Nice Amish wooden cabins. Great air conditioning. Good rafts. Scenic River. Go visit Barrett!!!! Great cabins, can buy ice and beverages at the location!! Only 6 miles off I-40 westbound at exit 143.

$32 for 2 kayaks and transportation. Beware of the 5 mile trip. Strongest rapids of the float with giant rocks as soon as you enter the float. Literally, the second you leave the banks. Float was really nice besides that and the facilities were very nice. The bathhouse was in surprisingly good shape and very welcome.

We drove all the way from Georgia to tube the Buffalo River and chose this company due to their good Facebook reviews. We were very disappointed with the level of customer service and lack of communication between the employees! We were told to drive down by the river, park and wait for someone to pick us up. Well we drive... More

What a disappointment! We went camping with a group. When we got there they didn't have cabins available that we had reserved. No problem- we bunked in with each other. The cabin was fairly nice which was the only reason this place got a '2'. However, the next day, when we went to get tubes they disclosed that due to... More

This place was awesome at one time, but the owners changed and everything went to crap. After waiting in a long line we find out they lost our reservation. They didn't really seem to care. This has happened to other people I know as well. After we paid for our canoes , not kayaks like we reserved, we had to... More

My husband and I come here whenever we kayak the Buffalo. We have camped at their campground and stayed in their cabins. We don't camp very often anymore and on the weekends or holidays its hard to reserve the cabins without making reservations pretty far out. That being said, the camping is right on the river and fantastic if that's... More

Just did my 2nd float at this great place. I checked out the nearby competitors b4 I went the first time and I know now, there's no reason to go anywhere else. At one place, the owner insulted me the first minute I walked in. I said I wanted just a shuttle of my own kayak, and he said "Why... More

We had a group of 7 that visited the Buffalo River RV Resort for a float trip on a recent Sunday. We had never visited the area before and called a few times prior to the trip with questions. The lady in the front office was very friendly and helpful and happy to answer all questions. The day of the... More
