Buffalo National River - Float Levels / Skill Descriptions

River level readings indicate the condition of the river for recreation. These readings are taken at four locations along the river. Each reading is unique and pertains only to that area.

 

 • Very Low:
The river is dry in places.

 

• Low but Floatable:
The river moves slowly and many rocks are exposed.

 

• Ample Water for Floating:
The river moves at an average of 2 mph, allowing canoes to float over most rocks.

 

• Experienced Floaters Only:
The river flows swiftly. Compromising situations may occur. Canoeing experience on swift moving rivers is necessary. All canoeists must possess good river canoeing skills and must be familiar with rescue procedures.

 

• Flood Stage:
The river flows outside its normal banks. Flood waters move quickly and carry debris. River conditions are hazardous even for highly skilled canoeists.
