Deep in southwest Missouri’s Ozark Mountains is the remote Roaring River State Park. An hour west of Branson, this state park is one of Missouri’s most popular destinations, and for good reason. Deep valleys, dense forests, and rugged hills beckon hikers to its seven hiking trails. The most unusual feature of the park, however, can be found near the campground.

Roaring River Spring, found in a limestone gorge near the campsite, is the beginning point of the Roaring River. Over 20 million gallons of clear, 57-degree Fahrenheit water flows from the spring into the river every day.
