Here's a more detailed map
of the area from South Shore.

Flippin is located on a major non-interstate highway, US 412/62, in the heart of the Ozark Mountains near the South Shore of Bull Shoals Lake. The town lies between the White River and the nation's premier National River, the Buffalo National River.

Nearest interstate highways are Interstate 44 (140 miles north) and Interstate 40 (120 miles south). 

A nearby north-south, highly-traveled route is US  Highway 65 from Des Moines, Iowa, to Natchez, Miss., through Little Rock, Ark., Branson and Springfield, Mo. U.S. Highway 65 is 30 miles west of Flippin.

Flippin is a good hub location for an Ozarks vacation with Bull Shoals Lake situated just north of town, White River to the east and Buffalo National River to the west. For those who wish to spend the day away from the water, Eureka Springs, a quaint Victorian town, is west about 60 miles, and Mountain View, home of the Ozark Folk Center and Blanchard Springs Caverns, is about one hour south.
