The Jacks Fork River starts in Texas County, Missouri, and ends at the confluence near Eminence, Missouri – the “Canoe Capital of the World”. This clear water spring fed stream is a tributary of the Current River. The length is around 46 miles, and it is floatable year round. It is a popular float trip with several outfitters that provide rafts, canoes, and kayaks. There are several campgrounds in the area, and also lodging. This is a beautiful river with deep canyons, caves, and natural springs. If you are looking for primitive waters come float the Jacks Fork River!
