Mark Twain National Forest is broken into four different Visitor Maps. The Visitor Maps are usually the most useful maps for people to have with them when initially exploring the Forest. They cover a large area, show all roads and trails, and show recreation sites. Options to obtain these maps include:
At this time, only three Units--Ava, Cassville, and Willow Springs have maps. Download the app by clicking the above link, then click on these links below to add these three maps to your Avenza app. You will be able to see your current position on these great maps while you are on the go in these units!
Even though the Avenza app and maps listed here are free, Avenza charges a monthly fee to have access to more than three maps at a time.
MVUM maps (see below) are also available on Avenza. Click here to see a list of available Mark Twain National Forest MVUM maps you can upload into the app.
The Mark Twain National Forest accepts Credit Card payments for map orders. Those cards we accept are Visa, and MasterCard. For more information, please call (573) 364-4621 during normal business hours 8 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday thru Friday.
These can be purchased at our offices as well. Here are images showing the topographic maps for different places on the Forest.
These maps can be very useful at times. They don't have the detail of a Visitor Map; but they are the legal maps of where to, and not to, travel with motorized vehicles on the Forest. They can be a great reference to compare to other maps when exploring Forest roads by automobile or if you are planning an OHV excursion. OHV regulations vary by county in Missouri and Mark Twain National Forest allows use of its roads in accordance with the County regulations in which that road lies.
The most current MVUMs can be found by visiting the Forest's website.
The Interactive Visitor Map is another great tool to help you explore the Forest and it is updated with the most updated MVUM data.
