Benson Creek Natural Area

Benson Creek Natural Area,  Monroe and Woodruff Counties, located in the Mississippi Alluvial Plain of eastern Arkansas, provides an extension and buffer to a high-quality bald cypress-water tupelo swamp located along Bayou DeView. Previously disturbed plant communities within the natural area are the focus of restoration efforts designed to improve the ecological quality of the site. The Nature Conservancy and the Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission hold an undivided interest in 302 acres.

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.

From Brinkley go north on U.S. Highway 49 to State Highway 17. Go west on State Highway 17 about 3 miles to the bridge over Bayou DeView. Parking and boat access are available south of bridge.
