Lost Valley, one of the smaller recreation sites along the Buffalo National River, still offers a list of small adventures. The Buffalo River area is known for its elk watching, canoeing and kayaking, And the Lost Valley / Clark Creek area also offers a little spelunking.
Park signs give a cooks tour of what to expect in the hollow and suggest that the valley is neither lost, nor is it an actually valley. Clark Creek, like most tributaries to the Buffalo River, is fairly seasonal. Clark Creek flows for only three miles through Lost Valley, but in this short run the waters have created an array of surprising geological shapes. The creek occasionally disappears through holes in the limestone, and at times, depending on the amount of rainfall, it vanishes altogether.
