Mammoth is an unincorporated community in Ozark County, Missouri, United States. Mammoth is located along Supplemental Route T 5 miles (8.0 km) south-southeast of Gainesville. Mammoth is situated on the confluence of the Possum Walk Creek flowing into Lick Creek. The mouth of Little Creek is located 1-mile (1.6 km) northwest of Mammoth on Lick Creek.[2]

The area was known as "Lick Valley' and had a post-office established the 28th of June, 1872. The postmaster was Joseph C. Miller, a former Union private in the Ozark County Home Guard Regiment Mounted Cavalry, under the leadership of Captain Thomas B. S. Stone, Company A.

Lick Valley Post-office was discontinued the 6th of March, 1876.

The name Mammoth came into official use with the establishment of the Mammoth Post Office in 1902[3] by the local post master, William Dye. The post office at Mammoth was discontinued in 1955.[4]
