Missouri's Famous
Jacks Fork River
This tributary of the Current River is one of the wildest and most scenic of the Missouri Ozark streams
Its deep valley is nearly a canyon, with no bottomland fields for the first 25 floatable miles. It is therefore advisable to camp well above river level if there is any chance of sudden rain. Trips with loaded canoes above Alley Spring are recommended only in spring or after good summer rains. The few miles immediately above Alley Spring are especially wide and shallow and may have to be walked in low water. Upper sections of the river provide fine fly fishing water.

Canoeing the Jacks Fork River
The river is 44.6 miles long. The first 25 miles from the Prongs to Bay Creek is deep valley, nearly a canyon, and in the springtime provides beautiful Class 2 water. Due to lack of access, it is the most primitive of the Rivers in the region. From Alley Spring to Two Rivers is a beautiful Class I River and is floatable year around with warm water.
