MWA Buffalo River Trip

April 27 - April 30


We plan to put in at Ponca and take out at Pruitt (24.6-mile point-to-point).  We cover fewer river miles each day because we want to do a nice hike daily.  We expect it to be class I water with some class II riffles.  Please have experience on moving water.

Buffalo Outdoor Center  (BOC) is at the put-in and they can do boat rental and/or car shuttles ($95 per vehicle to deliver it to take out, no reservations). Some people may do their own shuttle, if time and vehicles work out for that. It’s a 35 min drive one way to the Pruitt take-out.

Please make your travel arrangements and be at the Ponca put-in Thursday 4/27/2023 at 1:00 pm. You can do 3 nights or less, your choice.  If you don’t take out at Pruitt (after 3 nights), please arrange your own take-out plans, perhaps with the BOC.  These two maps show our route: ponca-kyles.pdf and kyles_to_pruitt_map_revised_.pdf, plus and take-out options prior to Pruitt (Ponca to Kyles Landing = 10.6 river miles; to Erbie = 16 miles; to Ozark = 21 miles).

We will pack our own sleeping and eating gear out of our canoe or touring kayak.  Please be prepared to be self-sustaining, including a means to filter water, be warm, and to keep your possessions dry if you tip.  Current Buffalo River Levels.

Information, contact Sally Haywood 314-374-9206 <haywood.sally@gmail.com> or Scott Owens 314-599-1177 <stlrocker@sbcglobal.net>.  We’ll start a text chain for those who have registered.
