While the free-flowing river and gorgeous surrounding Ozark mountains provide plenty of nature-based enjoyment during the day, the beauty of the park doesn't stop there. The Buffalo National River gained the title of an International Dark Sky Park in 2019 through limited lighting and other projects that preserve the beauty and resource that is a dark night sky.
Whether you are enjoying the park from under a roof of a cabin or a tent, take a minute to enjoy the gorgeous night sky. Stargazing, reconnecting with nature, and the heavens unencumbered by artifical light are all benefits of visiting a Dark Sky Park like the Buffalo National River.
