Ozark is located in the state of Missouri and protects an area around the Jacks Fork and Current Rivers. The riverways was established by an Act of Congress in 1964 and had its official dedication in 1971. Today, the riverways encompasses an area of 80,000 acres and offers visitors multiple recreational activities such as boating, camping, fishing, hunting and hiking.
