The success of Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area's Volunteers-in-the-Parks program is a result of the hard work and dedication of the volunteers who choose to serve at the park. The park relies on the skills, talents, and abilities of many individuals to assist park staff in providing a quality visitor experience while preserving and protecting the natural and cultural resources of the park.

In the 1960's Congress requested the Army Corps of Engineers to study the feasibility of damming the Big South Fork of the Cumberland River just above the Devils Jump Rapid to create another reservoir. Had that happened Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area would never have existed.
