My daughter and I just returned from doing the 10 mile float in a kayak with Flatwoods Canoe Base and had a beautiful, relaxing trip down the Buffalo River. We first stopped at another rental called Buffalo River Resort which was closer to our home but they were unfriendly and disorganized so we went further down the road. We are so glad we stopped at Flatwoods because the service was excellent and staff was so friendly. The building is nothing fancy from the road, but the section of river they took us to for our trip was beautiful with waterfalls and swimming areas along the way. This place was worth the extra drive for us.

By far the best place for a relaxing getaway. Very friendly staff. Reasonable rates. Overall a great place for friends and family to have a good time on the river.

Our family of five just returned home from the 10 mile float and we were planning our return trip before we left their parking lot. The gentleman who shuttled us to and from the river was friendly and gave us "newbies" some pointers. The office staff was friendly. The price for the canoe and kayak rental was better than most around the area and I have to ask- WHY PAY MORE TO FLOAT THE SAME RIVER? The Buffalo was a great float and easy to navigate. A few swifter currents and downed trees but nothing unmanagable. The only bad thing was the number of drunks sharing the water... Overall, I have to say this was a fantastic Saturday and we will definitely use Flatwoods Canoe again :-)

Flatwoods Canoe Base is great. Always dependable, always answer their phone, good prices and nice folks to boot. We never worry about our vehicle(s) or other valuables we leave with them and they are always exactly where they say they'll be when they say they'll be there.
