Memorial Weekend Camping Trip • The Buffalo River, AR 

We went camping over Memorial Weekend with four of our close friends. We woke up at 5:00AM, packed the car, and drove the six hours to the Buffalo River in Ponca, Arkansas. After learning that every campground had reached maximum capacity, we loaded up our backpacks with essentials and headed through the forest to find our own spot. We landed ourselves the most beautiful spot on the entire river. It was gorgeous and directly across from our tent was the perfect cliff jumping rock! We spent the weekend tubing, checking for ticks every 5 minutes, hiking, playing Cards Against Humanity, exploring caves, and cooking some delicious campfire dinners. All in all, it was an incredible trip. Can’t wait to go back.
