Current Buffalo River Levels

We are currently floating Pruitt to Hasty. You can learn more about floating the Buffalo National River here and be sure to reserve your canoe or kayak for spring in advance by clicking “book now” and selecting “boat rentals”.

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 5 minutes.
