National Park Service Announces 2013 Buffalo River Campground / Access Services

| Category: Buffalo River Camping

Here is a helpful reference list of the campground / access services available as of this post at Buffalo National River campgrounds and accesses.  The National Park Service encourages visitors to:

  • Pack out as much of your trash as possible as wastecans will not be emptied as often.
  • Bring your own toilet paper as facilities will not be cleaned nor restocked as often.

Noteably, all campground sites and services at Erbie are totally closed until further notice.  

If you wish to express concern for these closings, the Buffalo National River headquarters may be reached at 870-365-2700.
