The U.S. Interior Highlands is a mountainous region spanning eastern Oklahomamarker, western and northern Arkansasmarker, southern Missourimarker, and the extreme southeast corner of Kansasmarker. The name is designated by the United States Geological Survey to refer to the combined mountainous region of the Ozarksmarker and Ouachita Mountainsmarker, which form a distinct physiographic division. It is the only major highland region between the Rocky Mountains and the Appalachian Mountainsmarker in the United Statesmarker.

The region is occupied by the Ozark mountain forests, an ecoregion of temperate broadleaf and mixed forests. Parts of the area are covered by three national forests: The Ouachita National Forestmarker in Oklahoma and Arkansas, the Ozark-St. Francis National Forestmarker in Arkansas, and the Mark Twain National Forest in Missouri.
