Summer Travel: Gilbert
Sitting on the banks of the Buffalo National River, the resort town of Gilbert is the “Coolest Town” in Arkansas. The short drive into Gilbert along State Highway 333 is simply gorgeous. When you arrive, you’ll find a town that time forgot. Welcome to a quiet community surrounded by the cool mist of the Buffalo National River.
The town is home to the Gilbert General Store, river outfitter Buffalo Camping & Canoeing, the Gilbert RV Campground and the Buffalo River Art Gallery. Wonderful cottage and cabin lodging dot the town, along with live music and a snack bar at Ben’s Place. Come camp, swim, float, fish, hike, cycle, or horseback ride. Gaze at the dark night skies in amazement. Gilbert welcomes visitors to stay a day, a week or even a lifetime.
Remember: You may leave Gilbert, but Gilbert will never leave you!
