Ozark National Scenic Riverways is the first national park area to protect a river system. The Current and Jacks Fork rivers are two of the finest floating rivers you’ll find anywhere. Spring-fed, cold and clear they are a delight to canoe, swim, boat or fish. Besides these two famous rivers, the park is home to hundreds of freshwater springs, caves, trails and historic sites such as Alley Mill.

Harvey’s Alley Spring is an authorized concessioner of the Ozark National Scenic Riverways, National Park Service, Department of Interior.

We are authorized within the Ozark National Scenic Riverways to provide canoe, kayak, raft, and tube rentals and shuttle service.
