On a popular river in southern Missouri’s picturesque Ozark foothills

Established river rental and campground business welcomes guests from a wide area to the picturesque Ozark foothills in southern Missouri. The Current River is part of the Ozark National Scenic Riverways and is ideal for floaters of all skill levels. The cool and clear waters are irresistible on hot summer afternoons, and the campground is located in a well-kept wooded area near the water. Rentals include canoes, kayaks, rafts, and tubes. Several drop-off and take-out locations allow for varied trip lengths.

The campground is a short walk from the take-out spot near the office, and campers appreciate the cleanliness of the bathhouse and grounds. The store offers firewood, ice, and float items. This business boasts a very good reputation with a strong customer base, with potential growth opportunities in untapped markets in northeastern Arkansas. Clean and well-kept, this campground receives great reviews, and customers often return year after year.

Float Trips
Perfect river for floating in a raft, tube, canoe, or kayak, even for beginners. 3 float trips are available, each taking between 3-12 hours. Guests meet at the store and are taken upstream to the start of the float. They can take their time and enjoy a picnic at one of the gravel bars along the river. When they are ready to finish, they float back to the campground where they can walk to their tent or RV. If they drove to the store, they are given a lift back to their car. Dogs are welcome on floats and guests can also fish for smallmouth bass.

The campground is conveniently located at the float trip take-out spot and just a short walk from the park store.
