“Great river locations”

Reviewed Oct 30, 2016

Overall Rating

The other reviewer does a nice job describing all logistical details. Like many parks, weekdays are quiet in the fall. The campground runs parallel to the river so there are lots of good site with river view however they are too close together.

Regardless, it is a beautiful well maintained park with electric and water hookups (the only one in NPS on the river). Nice hiking around the park and easy access to river with an awesome bluff on the bend. There is also good access for canoeing in the area.

“Peaceful river camping (mid-week anyway...)”

Reviewed May 08, 2016

Overall Rating

This is a beautiful national park on the Buffalo River near Yellville, Arkansas. It was peaceful and mostly deserted from Tuesday-Friday until the weekend folks rolled in and put their children everywhere.

A and E loop are first come, first serve sites. B, C, D loop sites can be reserved 72 hours in advance via Recreation.gov. There's a self-pay at a station in each loop, Rangers do not manage reservations at the ranger station. Sites are not really level, so make sure you have some leveling boards on hand. Sites are also close to each other. A and E loops are the quietest in the park. A-21 was my favorite site, but it was taken when we got there :( Rigs longer than 35' may have a harder time finding a spot.

Buy groceries in Yellville at Harp's (~25 minutes away from the park). There's a liquor store in Summit that sells beer/liquor 7 days a week. You can also buy beer from Wild Bill's Outfitters (nearby the park)

There is no Verizon cell service in the campground itself. The restaurant on site has wi-fi (password when I stayed was 80084020). You can also get a weak Verizon cell signal at the main ranger station.

There are a few bathhouses on site for showers. They are clean and operated on a push-button system (5-10 seconds from what we could tell, you'll be pushing the buttons a lot!).

Nearby attractions include: Rush historic district, floating the Buffalo River, Blanchard Springs Cavern.

I would definitely visit this park again during the weekdays. It was a bit too busy for us on the weekend itself.
