Buffalo National River is more than just a river. The 95,000-acre park contains open farmlands, oak-hickory forest, ponds and streams, abandoned homesites, tall bluffs and box canyons. These different areas provide varied habitats for the wildlife that lives here. The park trails offer some of the best places for viewing native plants and wildlife.
Hunting is permitted in the park in accordance with state regulations. During the early fall through late spring, some form of hunting season is in progress. Use caution when hiking in the woods during this time.
