Riverways Corridor Lands (Scenic Easements), Shannon and Carter Counties, 951 acres


The L-A-D Foundation owns and manages properties governed by permanent scenic easements of the National Park Service, Ozark National Scenic Riverways.


Ozark National Scenic Riverways was established by Congress in 1964 and these easements along the river were created in 1970. They were designed to protect the river resource by prohibiting further development, allowing public recreation, ensuring the scenic integrity of the river corridors, and thereby offering an important measure of protection.


These lands, situated along both the Current and Jacks Fork Rivers, occur along the upper Current both above and below Akers Ferry. Also, below Sinking Creek between river miles 32.5 and 56.0, floaters pass more than 23 miles of Foundation-owned land along one or both sides of the Current River.
