As business leaders, we’ve used our personal experience with meetings and retreats to build RiverWind Lodge. This beautiful facility pairs a stellar location with amenities that make for a quality, yet affordable team event—whether it’s the lodge’s spacious great room overlooking 30 miles of Buffalo River country or its fully equipped kitchen featuring double appliances that expedite meal prep and clean up. Quite frankly, there’s no other meeting place like it in Arkansas. Learn more about RiverWind Lodge and its many retreat-friendly amenities, including overnight accommodations for up to 36 guests (dbl occ).

Although meal prep itself can be a team-building experience, sometimes you want them focused on other things or perhaps just enjoying some down time. If so, contact us about catering options in the area.
It’s always a good day when you hike the Buffalo National River and the Ponca area where we’re located is home to the finest hiking trails in Arkansas. This is always a great year ’round choice for a group activity. Ask our office staff for a trail recommendation that would fit into your retreat itinerary.
March through June, we can help you organize a group float trip through Arkansas’ prettiest canoeing scenery. Plus, even though you’re there for fun and fellowship, canoeing is an activity which naturally inspires teamwork, so it’s a great way to relax with your team, yet simultaneously influence the teamwork side of things.
Zipline Canopy Tour
It’s amazing how people pull together and cheer one another on when standing on a platform 50 feet in the air with nowhere to go but forward! Suddenly a meek, mild person discovers that she has a lot of hidden bravery in her (and her teammates discover this as well)…or, a bold “I-got-this” type learns the importance of relying on the skill sets of others as the guides coach on departures and approaches, which are different from platform to platform. Plus, it’s just pretty up there in the trees, so your team will enjoy themselves immensely and have great stories to tell when they return home. Learn more now about the Buffalo River Canopy Tour zipline adventure.
Zipline rates are $99+tax per person for less than 8 people; $89+tax for 8 or more. For a private weekday tour (minimum of 8 guests), we need a 2-week advance notice as the zipline is not open every day of the week.
