The Ozark National Scenic Riverways is America’s first congressionally designated national park for the preservation of a wild river system. The park encompasses more than 80,000 acres around two of America’s clearest and most beautiful spring-fed rivers: the Current River and its major tributary, the Jacks Fork River.
These rivers flow through pristine Ozark countryside, along towering bluffs and beside open pasturelands. Camping, swimming, fishing, canoeing, exploring and just plain relaxing are the name of the game here. The park is famous as an area of exceptional caves and springs; more than 300 of each are known to exist in the park.
NOTE: The address shown and the location shown on the map are for the park's administrative headquarters.
The park offers trout fishing in the Roubidoux River (Missouri fishing license required); an underwater cave that is open for scuba diving (clearance from the sheriff's department required); picnic tables; restrooms; National Park Service walking trail. An interpretive walking trail and Trail of Tears Memorial will be opening in 2015. Historical Significance: During the 1838-39 Trail of Tears, thousands of Cherokees along the Northern Route camped in the large field located south of Roubidoux Spring.
