Went for a long weekend. First, the staff was amazing, delightful and so hospitable. My first time to trout fish and I loved it. We had a guide the first day and rented a boat the second day, they have a private dock that has everything you need. Camp grounds are very well maintained excellent atmosphere. The RV spots are...

We had a wonderful stay at this RV park. I didn't give it a 5 because for the price it was pretty rough. Our spot offered great tree coverage but with trees come roots, which is what we had, had to walk on both into our trailer and out. The showers were good. But to be right on the river,...

We rented a cabin and brought my husband's sister and brother here for their first time trout fishing. The cabins are well appointed and comfortable, with wide porches that look over the White River and porch swings to sit and enjoy the view. The owners are friendly and knowledgeable, ready to answer any questions. It's very quiet, except for the...

And get away is key. This place is off the beaten trail so if that's what your looking for this is a good place to go. The cabins were nicely appointed and well maintained. Good access to the river and lots of room to get out. The river was amazing from a John boat or a canoe or kayak. Over...

A family of three and two dogs made for a great tent-camping experience. With overhanging bluffs, much vegetation, and the river, the scenery was beautiful. If you're looking for a place to stay that's near many hiking, fishing and kayaking locations, this is the place to stay! There are 3 river access locations at the facility. I would commend the...

We stayed here for a short family vacation in a travel trailer. We really enjoyed everything about the White Buffalo Resort. There are numerous cabins available for rent along with 5 full hookup sites and even more sites available for W/E. There is a pool that is 3 foot with nice multi-level decking with chairs and tables. Pool towels are...

Cabins are nice. All different sizes and prices. We stayed in lure cabin. The cabins sit right on the white River. The resort has boat rentals which I recommend. We caught our limit of trout all three days. Gorgeous bluffs and scenery. Cabins are fully equipped. Lure cabin worked well for three guys. More people would be tight.

I cannot say enough good things about White Buffalo Resort. The cabins are well kept and have all the amenities you need. The staff is super friendly and always helpful. The resort is so peaceful and located right across the river from some incredible bluffs. Fishing was phenomenal and I would recommend this resort to anyone.

This was my second trip to the White Buffalo Resort and it was a great time. Caught our limit, plus each day and enjoyed the swing on the porch at night. If you never fished the White river spend a few dollars extra and the guides will teach you the tricks. Highly recommend this location for all ages and family...
