Frog Bayou Wildlife Management Area
Frog Bayou WMA (812 acres) is one of Arkansas’ newest, established in 2005 by the AGFC in partnership with Ducks Unlimited and the U.S. Natural Resources Conservation Service. The area is along Frog Bayou (also called Clear Creek), south of Dyer in Crawford County near the Arkansas River. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers land adjoins the WMA. The former farm is a wetland restoration, with migratory waterfowl its main user. Seven moist soil units with low levees are operated as shallow impoundments during late fall and winter; one of these units is separated from the main tract. Much of the other land has been planted in hardwoods such as cypress and willow oak. About 40 acres are forested. Rabbits are plentiful, with some squirrels and deer. A variety of shorebirds - herons, egrets and less common species - white-faced ibis visit the area. Visitors may spot them along Denham Road. Access is by county roads off U.S. Highway 64 at Dyer.

Nearby Corps of Engineers’ Clear Creek Park has camping and picnicking facilities.
