There’s no doubt that the Buffalo National River is one of Arkansas’ most treasured gems. After all, the country’s first national river has endless trails, beautiful campsites, and the best lazy float in the world (okay so we’re a little biased). The river will soon have a new title as Arkansas’ first Dark Sky Park. Let’s gaze up at the stars and learn more about the importance of this new honor.
