Hasty put-in is only a few 100 feet off a paved road. It’s got a large parking area and a vault toilet. It’s got a beautiful bluff line. It’s a short walk to the cool waters of the Buffalo River. It’s got a really big sandbar during low water you could definitely camp along it. Also has a vault toilet.

Visit our hiking page for more info about hikes in the area.

Leave your shuttle car at Carver for a 4.2-mile float or Mt Hersey for an 11-mile float. You will do about 2 miles an hour. A little faster if the water is higher, slower if the water is on the lower side.
