About the marmaton river
The Marmaton River is a tributary of the Little Osage River and spans approximately 102 miles in length, flowing through southeastern Kansas and southwestern Missouri. The river originates in western Missouri and flows through Bourbon and Crawford counties in Kansas before joining the Little Osage River near Fort Scott, Kansas. The river has a rich history, being named after a Native American tribe that inhabited the area. The river is utilized for agricultural purposes, and several dams and reservoirs have been constructed on the river, including the Marmaton Reservoir, which provides irrigation for local farmers. The river also provides recreational opportunities such as fishing, boating, and camping for visitors. The hydrology of the river is characterized by seasonal fluctuations in flow due to precipitation patterns in the region.
