Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Camping Jack's Fork Missouri

Camping along the scenic Jack’s Fork River in Missouri

A favorite early spring trip for canoeing is the Jack’s Fork River or the Current River in Missouri. The two rivers make up the Ozark National Scenic Riverway system in southern Missouri. The water is crystal clear and the riverside is full of scenic limestone bluffs. Day trips are fun, but the highlight of the river is camping along the way on the gravel bars in the Ozark wilderness. Eminence, Missouri is the place to start a Jack’s Fork adventure as there are several canoe rentals in town.
