In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Buffalo National River and 60th anniversary of the Ozark Society, the Ozark Society plans to conduct a float trip from Highway 65 to the White River, from June 13 – June 18, 2022.  There will be several groups of about 15 persons per group.  Each group will have a common kitchen and food.  Participants will need to provide their personal gear and boat.  The boat must be capable of carrying some group gear.  The cost for this trip is $150 per person, not including vehicle shuttle cost, boat, or personal gear.

As an alternative, Alan Nye will lead a group wherein each participant will provide his/her own food.  The cost for this trip is $60 per person, not including vehicle shuttle cost, boat, or personal gear.

Trip participants can shuttle their own vehicles or call Wild Bill Outfitters at 870-449-6235, to arrange a car shuttle from Highway 65 (Grinder’s Ferry) to Riley’s Station on the White River.  The cost of the shuttle is $180 per vehicle, and remember to identify yourself as a participant in the Ozark Society float when you book your shuttle with Wild Bill.  Payment for the shuttle will be made from the individual to Wild Bill.

To secure a spot on the trip please mail a check for the trip fee (either $150 for the community trip or $60 for the individual trip) to:  Ozark Society, P.O. Box 2914, Little Rock, AR  72203 with the Buffalo River Trip 2022 Information Form available HERE.

This is an historic trip, and I look forward to good participation from our membership.  See you on the Buffalo!
