The 2024 float season launches March 1st! Be sure to reserve your canoe or kayak in advance by clicking “book now” and selecting “boat rentals”. You can learn more about floating the Buffalo National River here

GAUGE KEY:
Black = Very Low  / Blue = Low / Green = Moderate / Yellow = High / Red = Flood Stage

Each gauge is designed to reflect a specific river section’s unique gradient, so color
segments will differ in length between gauges.  River levels update @ every 5 minutes.
