on the buffalo

Enjoy the beauty of the rural rolling hills and much farmland in this area of Lewis County, Tennessee and the Buffalo River watershed.

This is not a crazy, over-packed campground. Space is limited and available first come, first serve. There are about 8 Tent Campsites or you can Glamp at the Lemon Lodge across from the campground entrance.
Members get priority.

 

Are you looking for a unique family activity to explore the land as a disconnect to reconnect? Ask about our guided walks. We also offer pottery workshops and a tour of the camp to meet the donkeys.

We only offer transport service.

We are not a rental outfitter for floats, canoes or kayaks.

We are not a canoe, kayak, or tubs

CAMPING

On The Buffalo is a luscious 12 acre private land offering primitive camping in the various terrain from forest to meadow. . Access will be limited on a daily basis to ensure that the peacefulness of this place is not destroyed by massive population. Becoming a member will guarantee your access and also help keep this space private compared to the other options down river.

Spend time wandering the land.

Affiliated with the nature immersion creativity retreat center - Camp Wonder Wander that is a 5 acre facility across the street from the entrance.

RIVER & TRAILS

On The Buffalo CAMPGROUND is on the Buffalo. We have about 400 feet of river frontage. The river can flood usually during spring rains. Therefore we do not suggest camping on our river front access. You can get to the water down a one lane road dug outside of the bluff.
Explore our 12-acres with evolving trails by foot or bike. No motorized vehicles allowed. You may stumble upon art installations.

LODGING

Not interested in Camping? You can glamp at the Lemon Lodge at Camp Wonder Wander. Approximately 10 minute walk to the river, you'll find our fun lodge that overlooks the donkey paddock and grazing land. The lodge sleeps 14.

We do not have any additional cabins or inside spaces right now.

About our extended creativity retreat center @campwonderwander on Insta and FB: Let your creativity flow like the Buffalo. Book an extra workshop to learn pottery or other art, craft, or design. You may want to meet our camp animals - donkeys (miniatures and standards), chickens, peacocks, and domestic rabbits, cats, and dogs. The artist residency program should lead to an ever growing arts environment such as murals and sculpture gardens. Blue sky dreams include a ropes course and zip line as well as numerous micro shelter off grid cabins for rent and use by the artist residency program so with your help we can make this a really amazing unique destination.

If you have a group, troop, or club you would like to coordinate an excursion camping or glamping along with a workshop that you manage with our assistance or we manage, we would love to discuss so please send a message via our chat.
