Parker Hickman Farmstead, Pilot Rock, Blanchard Springs Recreation Area
The oldest structure along the Buffalo National River Park system is the Parker Hickman log home, built in 1840. The site is actually an entire farmstead that's been preserved. The Pilot Rock area near Clarksville in the Ozark National Forest, is quite a success story dealing with woodland ecosystem restoration The Blanchard Springs Recreation Area north of Mountain View offers a wide array of outdoor adventure - hiking, mountain biking, trout fishing, camping, swimming, a bluff shelter and a historic mill site.
