Came to this river over 15 years ago as a child, this past weekend I had the privilege to bring my two girls to do the same. They are 8 & 10 and rode in their own canoe by themselves for the last 3 miles of the 5 mile ride. IT WAS PERFECT!!! The staff was amazing and went above and beyond to make our trip happen, thank you all again for a wonderful weekend and we will most definitely be back!!! With all the technology that hinders kids today, seeing my girls work as a team to make sure their boat went straight was worth EVERY second. Thank you again for some great memories!!!

We rented the Sunset Lodge for our group and it was really nice. Very clean and plenty of room for everyone to have their own space and congregate. The porch was really nice and there is a fire pit and chairs for a bon fire.

We floated the river in a larger raft and did the 8 mile float. The bus driver is very entertaining and so much fun. He was very nice and told us jokes. It is a nice weekend getaway just an hour out of Nashville.

We tried to book it again recently but the lodge was already booked. We are going to try for an August weekend float and stay at the Sunset Lodge.

Room tip: The lodge is great for a group of 12-14

Our group of kayakers discovered Buffalo River Resorts when our preferred location was unexpectedly closed this weekend. Having driven over an hour, we turned to google to help us find another drop-off point and shuttle service. We did the 8 mile route — it was gorgeous and we thoroughly enjoyed our time once we were in the water.

However, the blonde woman working inside the office when we arrived offered some of the worst customer service I’ve experienced anywhere. From the moment we pulled up, she was overly neurotic, off-putting, and rude. She seemed terribly overwhelmed when another car of 3 river goers (bringing the total number of individuals on-site to 7) pulled up and rushed and snapped at everyone in the vicinity. She offered no explanation of loading/unloading location, landmarks on the river, or a summary of services. Our group regretted our choice from the moment we first interacted with her.

The shuttle service driver was great. He was informative and courteous — but beware that the van is completely full of dirt and dust. We had applied sunscreen while waiting on him to arrive and had to wash off in the river and reapply after the short trip.

Again, the route is beautiful — but due to the service, we will not be back. I recommend river-goers check our Bones for your drop-in service, shuttle, and route. It’s about $5-10 more expensive but the service is worth it!

We went on a Sunday and it wasn't busy. We filled out the waiver, and paid at the office. Drove over to the parking. Found life vests for our group. Our driver was waiting for us and took us over in a van with a trailer for our raft towed behind. The van didn't have AC, and was covered in graffiti inside--some of it was rated X. Got out at the 5 mile drop. It was a steep bank and if you have trouble with stairs or hiking you would want to avoid this. Got in and the float was so peaceful. We got out a few times to play along. Towards the end, before the resort is an island and has a great place to float down a ways and walk back on shore; the kids had a great time here. We saw turtles all along the way. Saw minnows and crawdads near shore at the island. Several people were swimming around the take out cove; the lady snapped a bit about this was "not a swimming hole" and the beach was over there. We didn't paddle at all and, since we got out at a few spots, we had a nice day for the 5 mile trip.
We drove in for the day and didn't camp. The cabins looked nice from the outside. Many of the campsites have nice shade and are right next to the river. The bathhouse seems pretty far away from the sites.

we have a cabin a few miles from the resort. We like to go down the river but need a place to park so we can bring our kayaks back. Never a problem, but it seems they have new help. $10/person to park. so if 5 people in car $50, that is just STUPID. We paid and then when we were picking up, we were told we couldn't pick up because we were stopping them from doing their job. After paying $20 for 1 vehicle to park in a field. I believe we should be able to stop, load our canoes and kayaks and get out of their way in a few minutes. What a grouch!
