Construction Delays of a New Waste Water Treatment Facility at Buffalo Point and Campground Closures

Buffalo National River is currently upgrading utilities that service the Buffalo Point Campground. The flush restrooms, shower facilities, and dump station at Buffalo Point will remain closed until the infrastructure upgrades are completed later this spring. Portable toilets will be available for visitors to use in areas adjacent to the current restroom facilities. Electrical and water hookups will be turned on and available at all drive-in sites starting March 15.

Due to construction, E Loop will be closed to all campers. A, B, C, and D Loops, the walk-in tent sites, and Pavilions 2 and 3 will be open and available on March 15. The five group sites and Pavilion 1, which also open on March 15, will have flush restrooms available. Campground reservations can be made through www.recreation.gov.

The Buffalo Point Concession Cabins also will remain open and available for reservations. Please call the Buffalo Point Visitor Contact Station at 870-449-4311 for further information.
