Tulsa World writes about the Buffalo River Region

Posted by on April 21, 2014

PONCA, Ark. — For those who grew up in the hills of Oklahoma and Arkansas, the outdoors were our playground.

Our expansive, wooded, sometimes dangerous playground.

And with springtime ushering in warmer weather, it’s time to get back outside and keep playing.

Opportunities for hiking, camping, canoeing, rock climbing, horseback riding and more are plentiful across the hills of eastern Oklahoma and northern and western Arkansas. Often the activities are available at reasonable prices, many even free.

My favorite part of any playground was the slide, and nature’s slides are the many rivers that cut through the landscape

About three hours east of Tulsa, drop into the Buffalo National River, the first river to receive federal protection in the country.
