White Buffalo Resort
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We just returned from 5 days at this wonderful resort. We stayed in the Tonka lodge 4 adults and 2 children and had lots of room to be comfortable. There are 2 rooms downstairs each with a queen bed and two baths. Living area with large table that sited 8 comfortably. The upstairs has two lofts with 4 twins in each loft. Kitchen is well equipped. The porch was where we spent much of our time. The staff is wonderful, friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this for anyone that loves the outdoors, canoeing, fishing or just doing nothing! I highly recommended a fishing trip with Mike. We had a great time and even booked two additional trips with him. Nothing like catching rainbow trout and cooking them right then. If your looking for a great get away, you won't regret it. The only con I would give is it is a little on the pricey side, but well worth it!

Room Tip: Go for a lodge that over looks the river. Beautiful and relaxing

We're glad you had an enjoyable stay and thank you for all the positive comments. We're sorry you left with the impression that we're "pricey" because we pride ourselves in offering many levels of accommodations to fit any budget for groups large or small; and we make every effort to place guests in the best cabin for their size party and pocketbook.

Just left and we are so ready to return. Staff and owner so helpful and a beautiful place. We LOVED the camper cabins, they were so fun and my husband said it was the best vacation he had ever had. Cant wait to return!

My husband and I recently rv camped at the white buffalo resort and had a wonderful experience. The resort is simply stunning and the staff are wonderful. The fog that rolls in from the mountains and settles on the river is a truly beautiful sight and you can't beat the fishing! The place is small, not many sights, but that is part of it's appeal. Our daughter had a minor emergency during our stay and the staff did all in their power to help us. We highly recommend a stay here and will stay her again in the future.

My wife and I didn't stay at the resort, but the campground looked nice enough. We chose to rent a canoe and enjoy the outdoors for July 4th. Luckily we found White Buffalo resort. The staff was genuinely friendly and helpful. The river was beautiful and perfect for a first timer. It was 7 miles of fun exercise. There was no pressure for us to finish in a certain amount of time, which was perfect as my wife loves to stop and take pictures. The prices were reasonable and we plan to return.

Location location location! The river is beautiful; fishing, and canoeing great. Staff is friendly. The pool is perfect for families with small kids.
However...the majority of the rv sites leave a lot to be desired. They are tiny!!! The staff doesn't monitor how people park in them either. So some people were pulled thru others backed in which made the already small spaces difficult to maneuver. Also most are located on a high bank overlooking White River. Which is beautiful but I have a 2 year old and was fearful for him all weekend. Additionally their website states they have fire pit/fire rings. Technically they do but it is a rusty wheel with an even rustier piece of expanded metal over it...no cooking on this. Overall we had a good time, but if we go back we will pay extra to stay in the larger rv spots.
