There are several places on the Buffalo that fit that bill, but I've personally been to the Steel Creek access and it is spectacularly beautiful, with the longest and highest bluffline on the river. It's close to Ponca for renting canoes, and there is a trailhead right at the campground that goes along the river and it's a great hike. You would hardly need to leave the campground to do all three things!

The Mulberry river is also good for canoeing, and it may be a little closer to where you are going. There is a campground at Turner Bend Store, Byrd's campground, and Redding, which is right on the river with a nice swimming hole. Actually all of those are on the river, but Redding is the best swimming hole, I think. The Ozark Highlands Trail is close by, as are several other hikes....you could find out about all that at the Turner Bend Store.

Have fun! The Ozarks are fantastic. Wish I were there.
