“You’re there to float the buffalo river”

First off, if you stay here you’re obviously there to float the the river and that’s what makes this spot cool. It’s just up the road from Gilbert country store and the river. I say this because the campsite is not all that spectacular. It’s basically an open field. There are about a dozen electrical spots(30 amp). The bummer is the spots are pretty close together and electric hook ups are staggered so that two spots share a pole. Basically bring and extension because it’s likely the power is on the opposite side. All the electric spots do have water, but there is no dump station. You’ll have to hit Tyler Bend park on the way out. It’s $40 for two people which is steep, but they pretty much require you to pay for a float package to stay there, which is why you’re there more than likely. We paid $125 for two nights and the canoe rental and shuttle.
