The Wild and Scenic Rivers Act provides three levels of river classification: wild, scenic, and recreational.

Wild rivers are free of dams, generally inaccessible except by trail, and represent vestiges of primitive America.

Scenic rivers are free of dams, with shorelines or watersheds that are still largely primitive and shorelines that are largely undeveloped, but accessible in places by roads.

Recreational rivers are readily accessible by road or railroad, may have some development along their shorelines, and may have been dammed in the past.
