Big Spring Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Big Spring’s history as a public recreation area dates to 1924, when it became one of Missouri’s first state parks. In 1969 Missouri donated this jewel to the National Park Service to be part of the newly established Ozark National Scenic Riverways.

Now thousands of visitors come to this lovely area on the lower Current River to enjoy canoeing, hiking, scenic drives, dinner at the park’s rustic Civilian Conservation Corps–era lodge, and, of course, camping next to the river in Big Spring’s expansive campground. For those outdoor enthusiasts who prefer a little decadence with their outdoor fun, 14 comfortable cabins await."
