    The Eleven Point Ranger District takes its name from the Eleven Point River, designated a National Scenic River in 1968. Some unique features of the Eleven Point Ranger District include Greer Spring which is the largest spring on National Forest land and the Scenic Eleven Point River. Along with the Eleven Point, the Current and the Black Rivers also flow through this District, providing a wide variety of fishing, tubing, and boating options.

    Floating the rivers on this District offers spectacular close-up views of rocky bluffs, springs, vegetation, birds and animals. Camping is permitted on gravel bars as well as in one of seven primitive campgrounds accessible only by boat.

    Other recreation opportunities include: hunting, hiking, wildlife watching, mountain biking, horseback riding, fishing and camping.

    The district has seven campgrounds, many near special attractions like rivers and springs. If your interest is tubing, tubing is popular at Deer Leap and Watercress campgrounds. Local vendors provide tube sales and rentals.

    If your interest is in hiking, there are approximately 122 miles of trail available, ranging from ½ mile easy loop-trails, an 18 mile trek through the Irish Wilderness, all the way up to multiple-day journeys on the Ozark Trail.

    If developed camping is your niche, the District has six developed campgrounds and many undeveloped camping areas. Here are a few places to start your exploration of the Eleven Point Ranger District.
