R.L. Hankins Mud Creek Upland Wildlife Management Area
This is a 1,025-acre tract that was deeded to the Commission in 1989 by the FMHA, as authorized by congressional act 616 of 1976. Located in Randolph County about ten miles north of Pocahontas, this area lies in the Ozark foothills region of the state. Previously used for cattle farming the property is comprised of 632 non forested acres and approximately 380 acres of upland hardwood timberland.

This is a small but scenic area, well suited to bird watching, hiking or photography. Interior roads are off limits to motor vehicles. No camping areas have been developed. The area supports good populations of quail, deer and turkeys. Squirrels are abundant on wooded hillsides in years when acorns are plentiful.  

Take the county road off  Arkansas Highway 115 at Middlebrook as indicated by the WMA direction sign.
