Federal Forest Recreational Sites in Arkansas Temporarily Close

USDA Forest Service
A map of Ozark-St. Francis National Forest shows wilderness and recreational areas.

In late March, Ozark-St. Francis and Ouachita National Forests in Arkansas temporarily closed most recreational areas and campgrounds, to protect the public as well as staff during the coronavirus pandemic.

Update: Whitaker Point, also known as Hawksbill Crag, and Glory Hole Trails located in Newton County, on the Ozark-St. Francis National Forests, have also been temporary shutdown until further notice. That includes trailhead parking access.
