This is it! Your headquarters for Current River, Jacks Fork River and Ozark National Scenic Riverways information!

Come one, come all and visit the Current and Jacks Fork Rivers, leave the noisy hustle bustle of modern life behind, lose the stress, and relax for a time, while gliding over cool clear water, past scenic bluffs, springs, caves and forests.

Just as the Current and Jacks Fork Rivers rise from many sources to connect and become such extraordinary streams, we too, are all a part of a river of humanity, equally connected to our own ancestral sources. Perhaps that is one of the many reasons why the timeless rhythm of moving water so touches us, just as surely now, as it must have touched the hearts and souls of our ascendants, and the Native Americans before them who first roamed the hills and valleys of the Ozark Plateau. They most certainly experienced the same feelings of peaceful joy, awed exhilaration, innate excitement and natural connectivity that the experience of this river may arouse in you.
