An abandoned log cabin sits in the woods near Pulltite Spring along the Current River, one of two rivers that make up the Ozark National Scenic Riverways in Missouri. The cabin (note the vertical log construction) was built as a “retreat” for early 20th century visitors who came to float the Current River. The Current River is the most spring-fed of all the rivers in the Missouri Ozarks. The river is a favorite with paddlers who enjoy the cold crystal clear water from springs that feed the Current River, including Cave Spring, Pulltite Spring, Round Spring, Blue Spring, and Big Spring. The scenic river is lined with rock ledges, caves, gravel bars and bluffs.
The Ozark National Scenic Riverways was established in 1964, making it America's first national park area to protect a wild river system. The Ozark National Scenic Riverways, which include the Current and Jacks Fork rivers, is known for its caves, springs, sinkholes and losing streams. Visitors can enjoy water activities, such as floating, canoeing, tubing, swimming, and fishing. Additionally, there are opportunities for hiking, horseback riding, and wildlife viewing. Over 130 miles of waterways and 300 identified caves exist within the park.
