Camping is fun, but it isn't for everyone. Buffalo River Outfitters’ cabins are the perfect start and end to an excursion on the Buffalo National River. Ten of the Buffalo River cabins are located across from our store in a wooded area, and they are about a 5-7 minute drive from the river. Our ranch house, “River Rest at Baker Ford”, is located near the Baker Ford access to the Buffalo National River and is about 15 minutes from our store and about 5 minutes from the river.

All of our cabins are fully equipped with full size refrigerators, stoves, ovens and microwaves. The kitchen also includes a drip coffeemaker and enough dishes for the amount of people each cabin sleeps. All of the cabins have a fireplace. Basic linens are provided, as are toilet paper and paper towels. Outside of every cabin are rocking chairs and/or porch swings, a charcoal grill, and a fire ring. You must bring in or collect your own firewood or purchase it at the Buffalo River Outfitters store.
