As the National Park Service monitors and responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, we work closely with the NPS Office of Public Health to use the latest science to guide our decision making. Access to Buffalo National River is as follows:
Open: All roads, trails, and visitor centers are open unless otherwise noted.
Closed: Please check current alerts for temporary closures.
Places Masks are Required: High COVID-19 community level areas.
While the listed areas are accessible for visitors to enjoy, services may be limited. The CDC has offered guidance to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. We will continue to monitor all park functions to ensure that visitors adhere to CDC guidance for mitigating risks associated with the transmission of COVID-19 and take any additional steps necessary to protect public health.
