Buffalo Outdoor Center

Current Buffalo River Levels

We are presently launching at the Pruitt access (off Hwy 7 north of Jasper) for the 7.5-mile trip to the Hasty campground.  The Pruitt-to-Hasty section of the Buffalo National River offers scenic bluffs, fishing in deep pools and plenty of swimming holes.  It’s a leisurely, beginner-friendly float trip!

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.
