Current Buffalo River Levels

Float trips on the Upper Buffalo River are currently on hold until the area gets enough rain to bring the water level back up to a floatable state. We will update you as soon as we can float again! In the meantime, take advantage of the many other activities and wonders that Buffalo River Country has to offer! From hiking and mountain bike trails to ziplining and swimming holes…there are so many adventures waiting for you this Summer around the Buffalo!

GAUGE KEY:
Black = Very Low  / Blue = Low / Green = Moderate / Yellow = High / Red = Flood Stage

Each gauge is designed to reflect a specific river section’s unique gradient, so color
segments will differ in length between gauges.  River levels update @ every 10 minutes.
