Guided Primitive Camping Trips in the Ozarks

 
We are the premier Ozark Outfitter and Camp Host to facilitate a primitive camping trip on the banks of the Rivers. This is outdoor living at its finest. There’s nothing more rewarding than a camping or nature trip in the beautiful Arkansas Ozark Mountains! Practical skills of self-reliance are learned while camping.

 
Riley’s offers no “on site” camping. Let us help you create memories for families, friends, couples & kids.

 
 
Fully Guided Camp Trips

 
Let us guide you through a most memorable camping trip on the White River, along the Sylamore National forest, OR down the Buffalo National River through the Lower Buffalo Wilderness Area. Depart from the dock or take a float trip. We pitch comfortable camps on the riverbanks. We can accommodate fishing parties, nature trips or just simply enjoy your time in the Ozark Mountains camping.

 
All guides stay in guide tents at camp and will cook serve and tend all camp chores. We certainly don’t mind if you want to help out at camp, but it’s not expected. Large heated outfitter tents in the winter or cool nylon outfitter tents in the summer, dining fly /shade cloth, cots with pads, bedding, outstanding meals cooked at camp even on the open fire. This is Ozark camping and adventure at its finest.

 
Continue to the mouth of the Buffalo National River to find your drop camp set and ready. Wake up to explosive top water smallmouth action and turkeys coming off the roost. Spend the day on the Buffalo fishing and relaxing (hammock will be required).

 
Spend another night in the mouth of the Buffalo then paddle to Riley’s to take out or continue down the White to exit at Shipp’s Ferry or the mouth of Norfork Village. Don’t forget trout and smallmouth cohabitate in this section of the river.
