Reconnect with your loved ones by visiting the Buffalo National River Park, America's first National River. The River flows 135 miles through the majestic Ozark Mountains and offers many outdoor adventures. Canoe the river, explore the trails, drive the scenic routes, or view the famous Arkansas Elk herd in the Boxley Valley. Saddleback Lodge is in the heart of the Upper Buffalo National River Park and just minutes from where the River flows through the historic Boxley Valley. Floating the Buffalo is fun and exciting, but the adventures don't stop there. Allow the Upper Trails to take you to historic home sites and numerous waterfalls, including the most popular, Lost Valley; most photographed Arkansas Landmark, Hawksbill Crag; or the highest waterfall between the Rockies and the Appalachians, Hemmed in Hollow at 204 feet.
