The South Fork of the Spring River begins as a series of small creeks near the community of South Fork, Missouri, and flows southeast to its confluence with the Spring River at Hardy, Arkansas. The upper section of the South Fork is generally remote and wild with few signs of civilization. The riverside alternates between pastures and forests for most of the way, but more signs of civilization are apparent as the paddler approaches Cherokee Village. These are not overpowering. Sharp bends and rocky shoals characterize the river, with very few difficult spots to negotiate. The water quality is very good and the river moves at good pace until it nears its junction with the Spring River, where it slows in the long pools.
