Overview

Wild Bills Outfitter is located on the lower section of the Buffalo River near Buffalo Point and Dillard's Ferry (Hwy 14 Bridge). This section of the river is great for families and novice floaters. We offer Buffalo River and Crooked Creek canoe rentals as well as kayaks, rafts and Jon boats for trips from 3 hours to all day to several days. We also offer Buffalo River, Crooked Creek and White River guided fishing trips. Wild Bills Outfitter has hosted reunions, corporate meetings, weddings, and church retreats and can take care of any size group with lodging and recreation. Our rustic mountain cabins (some with 2-person Jacuzzi tubs) will accommodate from 2-10 people (depending on the cabin). We also have accommodations for groups of 20-32 people.

Me and a couple of good buddies went out and camped on the river for a few days. We hiked about 40 miles on the weekend and just enjoyed some quality time. It was beautiful and the weather was perfect. Looking forward to another trip!

Pictures really don't do this place any justice. It is just beautiful. If you are going to canoe, I recommend either taking the longer trip (ours was 10 miles) or going on a week day. We went on a Saturday from Baker's Ford to Gilbert....More

Response from Bill S | Property representative |
For any whitewater on the Buffalo, you would need to float the upper section. This is normally in the spring and early summer depending on rainfall
