This was our third trip to Buffalo River Resort since it opened. We had went a couple years ago and had "ok" service. After reading they were under new management we brought friends from over an hour away to spend the day on the river. After todays trip we WILL NOT be back! I made reservations 2 weeks in advance....

We only spent one night here just to make sure our motorhome was up to snuff before leaving for Florida...We used this night to clean the inside and just make sure everything still worked well....Nice quiet fairly level lot with all hookups and very nice folks to deal with.

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

We drove for a little over an hour the day was overcasted and we had two younger children and the 6 older teens. From the time of our arrival they seem very unorganized and not... 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
