WE ARE IN THE HEART OF THE OZARK NATIONAL SCENIC RIVERWAYS…
Ozark National Scenic Riverways was created to protect 134 miles of the Current and Jacks Fork Rivers in the Ozark Highlands of southeastern Missouri.The clean, clear waters of these beautiful rivers are fed by intermittent streams, which wind their way through narrow valleys in the gently rolling countryside, and by numerous springs. The springs are part of a network of more than 300 caves that extend along the river corridors.
The landscape remains predominantly rural, with broadleaf forests and occasional open fields providing habitat for wildlife and a scenic backdrop for the rivers. Many of the local residents are descendants of the self-sufficient Ozark settlers, whose history is represented by numerous historic buildings and archeological sites throughout the park. This environment provides an excellent opportunity for jon boating, canoeing, swimming, fishing and tubing. Hiking, hunting and horseback riding are also enjoyed in the park.
Eminence Canoes, Cottages & Camp is in the center of Missouri’s largest national park. We invite you to enjoy river fishing and canoeing, hiking and biking the famous Ozark Trail, abundant wildlife viewing, spring hopping and auto tours.
Our Resort is perfectly located to enjoy the natural wonders that abound in this area. Relax in our well-appointed cottages or get close to nature in the campground. Once settled you’ll be ready to float the Current or Jacks Fork river in our canoes, rafts, kayaks or tubes. Please browse our website for details. Call or email to make your reservation!
