Ozark Put-In

Ozark  put-in is 1.4 miles down a nice gravel road. You will have to carry your boats a couple hundred feet down an incline. Not too bad.  This place has a great swimming hole, so it tends to always have lots of people. Be courteous when loading and unloading and don’t leave your vehicle in the way.

Visit our hiking page for more info about ORT, BRT and other hikes.

Leave your shuttle car at Pruitt Landing for a 2.1 mile float or Hasty for a 8.9 mile float. You will do about 2 miles an hour. A little faster if the water is higher, slower if the water is lower.
