Round Spring

  • 26 million gallons of water per day

Round Spring is a nearly circular pool of water that flows under a natural bridge into the Current River. The spring is 55-feet deep.

“Round Spring was a Missouri State Park from 1932 until 1964 when the people of Missouri donated it to the National Park Service to become part of the Ozark National Scenic Riverways. Like Alley and Big Spring, it was a gift from Missouri to the nation.”
