People who come to the south central Ozarks sometimes have overblown expectations. The most popular float on the river is Akers to Pulltite. I have been going to the river since 1975, and have had my expectations met or exceeded every time. If you want...More

Our group of friends have been using Carr’s/Current River Canoe Rental for many years. Stacy and his crew are fantastic! They pick up/ drop off and are super friendly. They have canoes, kayaks, and rafts available. This river is family friendly also!

Floated Current River from Pulltite to Round Spring. Just after a recent flood so not as many turtles and water was uncharacteristically not clear from surface to ten feet down. I floated this river 12 times from 1981 to 1986 when I was 10 to...More

Fabulous weekend at Round Spring. We floated from Akers to Round Spring where we camped. So many springs feed the river and the water is cold and pretty clear. It's not deep in most areas but some spots have deep pools. Lots to see on...More
