Current River: Cedargrove to Akers Landing is a 9.7mile point-to-point river trail beginning just south of Montauk State Park in Missouri. The river is rated Class I & II water. The trail is primarily used for canoeing, fishing, and camping. The Current river is the most spring-fed of the Ozark rivers and can be floated year round. Though most would consider the floating season to run from March through November. There are numerous springs, caves, and points of historic interest on the Current River. Float trips can range from a few hours to a week. It well well known for its fabulous trout fishing. The Ozark Mountains, which the Current flows through, is replete with many special scenic wilderness areas. You can even canoe back into a cave on the upper portion of the river. The river is managed by the national park service and camping is allowed anywhere along the river, and there are many concessionares and private for fee camping opportunities.
I have done this stretch of river four or five times now over the years. Cedar Grove is the furthest up stream you can put in on the Current. This is a nice casual day float, and I think the best because the river is narrower here.
Great float river and for trout fishing. Along this stretch their is a number of springs, remains of an old resort/hospital, a small cave you can canoe back into, and more. camping is allowed on the sandbars. Great simple float for kids and families, but very scenic for everyone.
