About the current river
The Current River is a scenic waterway located in the Ozarks of southern Missouri. The river stretches 184 miles from the Ozark National Forest to the Arkansas border, making it the seventh largest river in Missouri. The river's hydrology is unique due to its numerous springs, which provide a constant flow of clean water throughout the year. The river is home to several reservoirs and dams, including Clearwater Lake and Wappapello Dam. These structures are used for flood control and provide recreation opportunities such as boating, fishing, and camping. The river is also an important source of water for agriculture, providing irrigation for crops such as rice and cotton. The Current River has a rich history, including being used by Native Americans for transportation and trade, and later by European settlers for logging and transportation. Today, the river is a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts and tourists seeking natural beauty and adventure.
