How do you get to the north end of the Refuge?

Take Highway 160 from Johnsville or Hermitage. Various locations on the refuge are accessible off of Highway 160: take County Road #53 to Eagle Lake; take County Road #53 then #59 to Prairie Island/Saline River access. Take County Road #2, then County Road #63 to Pereogeethe Lake.

Is there camping on the refuge and if so where?

There are 11 primitive camping areas (no facilities) on Felsenthal NWR. Also adjacent to the refuge  are two camp grounds with full facilities: these are Crossett Harbor RV Park on Highway 82 and Grand Marais Campground at the town of Felsenthal.

What are the water levels?

Felsenthal Lock and Dam gauge  readings are published daily in the Arkansas Gazette or you can contact the lock direct at 870/943-2307. Flooding of the Felsenthal Refuge Greentree Reservoir will begin in mid-November with expectations that water levels will reach full flood by the end of December.

What are the hunting regulations and quota deer and turkey hunts?

For the designated hunting  seasons,  refer to the refuge brochure that can be found at the Felsenthal Visitor Center or received by mail by calling 870/364 3167.

Where are the fish biting?

Good places to fish are in the "eyes of the beholder" and generally associated with habitat needs of the species you are fishing for.  Fortunately, fish are fairly well dispersed throughout the bodies of water on the refuge. However, there are always "hotspots" that seem to hold more fish than others. Contact the refuge at 870/364 3167 or local bait stores for up-to-date reports.
