**This is the most popular site on the property.** You are usually the only guests in this really quiet area 20 minutes from any town and in one of the best spots in the region without light pollution. Pitch your tent or hang your hammock on the edge of the bluff above the Buffalo. You'll be on a flat, cleared spot immersed among the trees and above the river and landscape below steps away. Because of this, no children under 14 allowed at this site. You'll be immersed in the forest and if voices are silent you can hear the river and the birds and the wind, if any, in the trees.
You are invited to hike around the property or even bring your mountain bike where you'll be able to ride about 1.5 to 2 miles meandering through the various terrain here on the buffalo. And don't forget the best aspect - our riverfront on the Buffalo - that features a nice area to wade or swim with a large rock wall as your view. Bring your canoe or kayak and you can set in to one of two spots up the river (5 or 10 min drive) and take out at the camp. A minimal transport fee to go get your vehicle or to be dropped off.
To unload, you drive through the magical pine tree lane down to an area where you can unload. Parking is not available adjacent to any of the campsites to keep this a magical nature space. It's not a far walk and your vehicle will be safe in the parking area. This special spot is best for one tent.
Price includes 2 and add'l fee for extra guests.
This is a primitive site.

Buffalo river camping
Tent camping on Val’s property was great! We took a guided Nature walk and she explained different plant and animal life. We got to meet the donkeys, then had the day and night all to ourselves on a small bluff over the Buffalo River. It was great for one night away from the city.
