The Gilbert General Store est. 1901 is on the National Registry of Historic Places. The Gilbert Store is now the home of Buffalo Camping and Canoeing a registered concessionaire on the Buffalo National River.

Our front porch is an excellent place to relax and enjoy the company of a fellow traveler or one of our colorful locals. Inside, you can explore the history of Gilbert and nearby areas. We are a living and working museum, feel free to take a look at the original post office boxes, our arrowhead collection, and other nick-knacks we have collected over the years. Have a seat in a rocking chair and enjoy an ice-cold coke from a glass bottle the way it was meant to be enjoyed. While you are in the store, ask us about a cabin or a canoe trip to add to your adventure. Even if you don't have time for a trip on the river or a stay with us come by and see us. We are a short 3 miles off the beaten track. (Hwy 65)
