Buffalo National River, Harrison, AR – Park Staff at Buffalo National River recently completed winterizing the park’s facilities.  “With cold weather approaching, water systems and restrooms have been winterized to prevent freezing and broken pipes.” said Superintendent Kevin Cheri. Water systems will resume operation in mid-March 2017, weather permitting.
Throughout the park, camping and day use areas such as river accesses remain open, but water systems have been turned off. Primitive facilities such as vault toilets are still available.
