This is your one stop headquarters for everything Current River, Jacks Fork and Eleven Point River (See where the Missouri Scenic Rivers region is by clicking here). This site has been operated by Steve King and Missouri Scenic Rivers #1571 since 2002. Did you know that of the 45 rivers in Missouri, ONLY these 3 are classified as federally protected scenic rivers? Missouri has approx. 51,978 miles of river, of which only 178.4 miles are protected. See where these are located within the state of Missouri by clicking here. The Current River and Jacks Fork are apart of the protected act of 1964 and managed by the NPS and the Eleven Point River is apart of the protected system act of 1968 and managed by the USFS. These protected rivers are under two different acts of Congress, so they are managed under two different scenic river systems. All are ideal for secluded backcountry camping, great fishing and breathtaking float trips. These pristine Missouri Scenic Rivers are generally crystal clear except during and after heavy rains which usually occur in the spring. They are all spring fed which keeps them nearly a constant cool 62-68 degrees year round. The average temps of the spring sources that feed the rivers are even colder at an average 56 degrees. Perfect for that HOT summers day! If you haven't joined our huge Facebook group, then do so right here.
