We tent camped at the Buffalo Point Campground in loop B for a few days. These sites are the closest to the river and the swimming area. The sites are pretty close together, but there were a few that had more room (next time). We rented from Wild Bills and floated to Rush. It was gorgeous! We saw tons of wildlife and were the only ones on the river on a Thursday morning. The sites being close together and the lack of a super flat area for our tent is the reason for the 4 star. Plus the bathrooms were a little dirty, but they had great pressure and hot water. Don’t miss out on the Indian Rockhouse trail and the concession restaurant. Get the broasted chicken breast and jojo potatoes. Trust me. Plus a piece of peanut butter pie!
The "river" that runs nearby was low and it's cold as it's spring fed. It's a steep decline to get down to the water and really hard to get back up. Guest services were good, but the punch code box to get in is tricky. We spent most of our time at the State Park instead of here. RV and tent sites are mixed together and it's a tight fit and constant struggle to keep vehicles out of the way of other people coming and going.
It’s free camping , the restrooms and all the campsites are in the same area , every site has a hard top cover and fire place water hookups and electric , but my favorite part is swimming in salado creek , there is a rope swing . Only downfall is it’s right on the main highway so trucks get kinda loud at night sometimes
This is an incredible place to camp. Your camp is where the White River and Buffalo rivers merge. If you enjoy fishing this has some of the best trout and bass fishing in the area. The resort has cabins, full hookup sites , tent sites, pool and play area for the kids. If you like to just float or fish they can help you with what you need. There is also boat rentals , fishing guides, just plain relaxing. The resort is family owned,
Breathtaking sites along lake- electric and water no sewer. Campsites have an outhouse which they share with all the people that come to swim-2 seats per sex. Up at Marina there is a flush bathroom with shower/2 stalls but it is not maintained well. Toilet seat was broken last year and when we came back this year it never was repaired. But the vistas and hiking are wonderful- the place could be awesome if cared for.
We have always enjoyed camping here. It's a little less primitive than we like. Our only gripe here is that the sites are close together so it feels like you have no privacy. Almost all of the sites are shady and there are lots of cool hikes and exploring to do. Check out the ampitheater. The swimming is always perfect here!
This is a very primitive campground, but it's one of our favorites! We can almost always find a spot to camp and it's super easy to pull our trailer into every spot there. It's a horse camp and there are many spots with shade and some with none. There are two vault bathrooms, no tables provided, and not trash. We love the peacefulness of this place and will continue coming back.
We have loved BP for 25 years. We have always tent camped but now we have a camper. This site isn't great for a camper/RV, but at least we were at Buffalo Point! I say it's not great for a camper for the following reasons: Your camper door opens into a BUNCH of brush/bamboo. The picnic table is on the wrong side (not the door side). Other than that, the good things about it are: like I said, you're at Buffalo Point and the river is right below you . You are RIGHT next to the boat launch/swimming area. All that to say, if this was the last site available, we would take it again, it's just not our first choice.
Nice large sites with centrally located clean bathhouse. Nice swimming beach; good fishing for trolling motors only.
I stayed one night here with a group of friends, there was only one site available by the time I arrived. Despite being crowded it was very clean & peaceful. We were raided by some raccoons at one point & we encountered a bear a mile or two down the road, so use caution while camping. It was a very nice experience & I definitely recommend staying here.
Very nice campground right on the Buffalo River. We walked to the river right behind the campground. Lots of bamboo around, and very big sand burrs! Beautiful river! The first National Scenic River in the country. Great for canoeing and fishing. Saw deer in the campground several times. Raccoons stole from our cooler the first night. Hawks, herons, pilated woodpecker, kingfishers, and lots of buzzards. The campground is spread out, so you are not right on top of each other. Central water supply. Dump station.
"Woolly Hollow State Park" is a hidden Gem !!! The drive on the Back Country 2 lane road drive is off Route 65,,, get's your excitement up wondering what to expect… There are no city light's to spoil the night's Starlite Sky.. And all you hear at quiet time are Mother Nature's soothing Sound's… It has Paved Road's,,, Concrete Pad's,,, Full Hookup's and a Lake to Fish or Swim in… The RV Site's are individualized almost no duplicate's… You are not sitting on top of each other's site… You have your own space to spread out… In our opinion all RV Park's should be setup like "Wooly Hollow State Park" !!! And if you just want to have a Good Ol' Family Picnic there are plenty of picnic area's with table's,,, some are covered… We give it """ 10 Star's """ !!!
Campsites were great, adequate space between sites. Love the layout of the campground, sites run parallel to the river. My only complain is bathrooms and showers are old and dirty (dirty because they’re old, still cleaned daily) and the shower was barely warm in the fall.
