2014 PITP Buffalo National River
Designated a “national river” nearly 40 years ago, the Buffalo remains one of the few undammed rivers in the lower 48 states. For 135 miles it cuts through massive limestone and sandstone formations as it flows east across the Ozarks in the northern part of the state, eventually joining up with the White River, which in turn heads south for the Arkansas and the Mississippi Rivers. Depending on the time of year and recent weather, floaters on the Buffalo encounter a wide variety of stream conditions--from still, deep pools to exciting rapids, to shallows that must be portaged on foot while pulling boats along.
