We love the Jack’s Fork River. Probably because our first camping experience was at Blue Spring Campground, by Jack’s Fork, near Mountain View, Missouri.

It is. We enjoy Jack’s Fork River. It can get busy at peak times, and some spots are very popular with the locals, but mid week you can have the river almost to yourself.
We had some friends who use to live in Eminence. We camped with them several times along this river. Your pics brought back some great memories. Now, we live a hop, skip and a jump from there, and we have not been back! I think we need to take a day trip when the weather warms up!
We’ve not been back to Jack’s Fork for a long while. We need to remember it once the really hot weather starts. Sitting in a creek is one of the best ways to cool off!
