Buffalo Creek Vacations was started after our father, Harold, retired from NY as a UPS driver.  He wanted to go somewhere & experience all 4 season!  Him & our mom settled in Haywood County, NC & built their own log cabin & started raising bison.  Then, myself, 3 siblings & our spouses purchases the 40 acres behind my folks 18 acres when it came up for sale.  We decided to build a cabin & then we started rented it out in 2007.  Now, we currently have 6 cabins & 2 train cabooses for rent.  We love living in God's country & raising the bison along w/ a bunch other farm animals.  We love hosting guest on our property & decided after many calls asking if we allow camping, to include a few lucky folks to camp at Buffalo Creek.  If you are looking for something other then "car camping" & being "on top of each other" at traditional camp grounds, then give us a call & come check us out.  You will be glad you did!

Seaboard Coast Line Caboose #0887
Such a fun and unique place to stay! My kids loved that we got to sleep on an actual train caboose. They also got to visit and pet some of the animals, and my daughter even got to bottle feed one of the baby goats, which she was thrilled about. We got fresh eggs from the store for breakfast and I was able to do some laundry (we were right in the middle of a longer road trip). Cheryl was so helpful and communicative. We hope to come back and stay again!

Our stay at Buffalo Creek was awesome! We loved the caboose and enjoyed our mornings on the farm. My kids loved watching the bison be fed, checking out the ponies, goats, pigeons, bunnies, etc. We would definitely return. Thanks for a great time Cheryl!

A unique and fun experience :)
We had a wonderful time. Spending two days in a train caboose was a incredible experience our child was elated. The Bison 🦬 were a treat to have outside our window and we got to watch the morning feedings. I would recommend this to any one who wants a fun and unique trip.

The caboose was nice and cozy and perfect for our family. There was adequate space for us to cook, eat, move around without feeling like we were on top of each other. The grounds were great and my kids loved to explore. The variety in the store was good and we look forward to our upcoming meal of bison.
