Arkansas Oak Natural Area
Arkansas Oak Natural Area, located in the south-central subdivision of the Coastal Plain, Nevada County,  supports a number of plant species considered to be rare in Arkansas. Four plant associations are present on the site: an open sand barren, a dry upland forest dominated by Arkansas oak, a creek-bottom community along Mill Branch, and a seep community containing an exceptionally diverse flora. The natural area adjoins Poison Springs State Forest and is co-managed with the Arkansas Forestry Commission.

There are no trails at this natural area.

Specific types of hunting are allowed on this natural area. For details, see the current Arkansas Game and Fish Hunting Guidebook. Take all necessary safety precautions when visiting this area.

Take State Highway 299 at Bluff City and proceed southwest for 4.3 miles. Turn left (south) onto County Road 47 and continue south for 1.4 miles. Park along roadside; the natural area is located on both sites of the road.
