Triple Falls (aka “Twin Falls”) at Camp Orr may be our favorite place in the Buffalo River area (so far).
The waterfall is fed by two water sources. (That is the reason for the alternate name “Twin Falls.”) The primary source is a fresh-water spring. This allows for water to flow year-round at this spectacular spot. The third waterfall, which is fed by a creek, may not be present during the dry season.
There are several ways to get to Triple Falls — there is a simple, short and flat route up from Camp Orr, a Boy Scout camp along the Buffalo River. (Word is that the final bit of this road to the camp is VERY rough, so if you don’t have a four-wheel drive, this may not be the route for you. There is also a pull-out parking spot that allows for quick access off of the main road to Camp Orr . This is the route described in Tim Ernst’s waterfall book.)
