Little Buffalo River Falls Territorial Park

Devastated by a forest fire in 1981, Little Buffalo Falls Territorial Park is now, 40 years later, an ideal spot to observe the regeneration of nature in the north. 

Relax by the Little Buffalo waterfalls, a narrow cascade that plunges to the basin below. Launch your canoe or kayak into the gorge below. This picturesque spot features six non-powered campsites, along with a playground, trails, interpretive displays and a kitchen shelter. A short distance from the site is the boat launch to the Little Buffalo River.

Little Buffalo Falls Territorial Park is just off the highway on the way from Hay River to Fort Smith. The campground is open from mid-May to mid-September.
