In the rolling, forested landscapes around Pulltite, two of America's most beautiful spring-fed rivers combine to make up the Ozark National Scenic Riverways.
As the first national park area to protect a wild river system, visitors have plenty of scenic water activities to enjoy as well as hiking, horseback riding and wildlife viewing.
The Current River flows past the campground, offering excellent canoeing, tubing, swimming and fishing. Over 130 miles of waterways exist within the park. Canoe and kayak rentals and outfitters can be found nearby.
The historic Pulltite Cabin is across the river from the campground. The only way to see the cabin is by boat or by wading across the river. The cabin is next to scenic Pulltite Spring, for which the campground is named.
Several miles of hiking and horseback riding trails crisscross the region, include the Alley Overlook Trail, Chubb Hollow Trail, Ozark Trail, Cave Spring Trail and Big Springs Trail.
This year-round campground has flush toilets and showers facilities available April 15 through October 15. Picnic tables, fire rings, and grills are provided. Roads and parking spurs are paved. Ranger-led campfire programs are offered in the campground amphitheater during summer months.
The Ozark National Scenic Riverways is known for its caves, springs, sinkholes and losing streams, and features over 300 identified caves within its boundaries. They range in size from a rock overhang to almost seven miles of identified passages. Eight caves, including an open sinkhole, have been designated as outstanding natural features.
The Ozark forest is mostly White oak and Shortleaf pine, Missouri's only native pine species. Along the rivers, Sycamore, Cottonwood, River birch and maples are common. Redbud and Dogwoods are also abundant, putting on a spectacular show during most spring months.
Scenic Round Spring Cave is nearby, with ranger-guided tours offered daily during summer months. Historic and picturesque Alley Mill and Alley Spring are also nearby. The mill is open daily in the summer and rangers offer tours upon request.

Paved throughout. Plenty of clean restrooms and showers. MAKE RESERVATIONS! This campground exploded in the last few years and it's always packed when we go anymore is the only downside. Nice, basic and electric sites. Riverfront sites also. Some group sites there also. Floating can be reserved at the campground store.
This campsite is great if you are wanting to float on the Current River. We have stayed at Pulltite Campsite every summer for 6 years in a row, and it never disappoints.
One of my favorite campgrounds. Spots right on the current river make it a beautiful place to stay or a great place to put in or take out. Usually not too crowded, and the spots are pretty secluded.
This campground is right on the Current River. We had the best time here. You can rent a canoe right here at the store and the people are extremely friendly! The store has everything you need, or forgot! Just remember that they only have 20 sites that are first come, but more that you can make reservations for. Also, you must make a reservation for the canoe!
