The timeless rhythm of moving water touches something in all of us. The Current and Jacks Fork rivers remain almost as wild and natural as the day Indians lightly trod the Ozark trails. We invite you to experience these magnificent Ozark National Scenic Riverways with us. Our facilities include canoes, tubes, camping, cabins, pool, dining, general store, hot showers, modern restrooms and electric hook-ups.
Welcome to Akers Ferry® Canoe Rental
Akers Ferry® Canoe Rental is a family owned operation with roots at Akers Ferry® dating back to the middle 1800’s. Our rental office is located at Akers, Missouri on Current River, 16.7 miles from its source at Montauk State Park and 23 miles from Salem, Missouri.
Today when we rent a canoe to you we want to do it in the same spirit as Buck and Loreen Maggard did when they rented their first Jon boat in the mid 1940’s. We strive to give you the best service possible. We hope you love and enjoy the river as much as we do!
We are members of PPA, MCA, MCFA, MOARC, FCMA, MTC and ARVC.
For your safety no glass food or beverage containers may be possessed on the rivers, on trails, in caves or within 50 feet of the rivers.
Missouri Hunting and Fishing Permits are available only at our Akers Ferry Canoe Rental store.
Akers Ferry® Canoe Rental is an authorized Concessioner of the National Park Service (NPS), contracted to provide canoe and tube rentals with shuttle service, camp store with merchandise, firewood sales and ferry operation within Ozark National Scenic Riverways, a unit of the NPS.
