The Riverways claim two of the clearest spring-fed rivers in the world, the Current and the Jacks Fork. Due to the dissolved limestone found in this water, it has an amazing blue tint which is amplified when the water is deeper or when the sky is blue. Also found in the area are many caves, some of which offer tours into their depths. Over 300 caves have been identified within the boundaries of Ozark National Scenic Riverways, ranging from not much more than a rock overhang to one cave with almost seven miles of identified passages. Eight caves, including an open sinkhole, have been designated as outstanding natural features.
The park consists of 80,000 acres with canoeing, hunting, hiking and fishing being just some of the activities that are enjoyed there.
Many think the Ozark is a state park instead of a national one. Their confusion is not entirely unfounded. Three of the largest campgrounds in the park used to be run by the state, but they were donated to the federal government in 1964 when the Ozark National Scenic Riverways was created.
