- About the Name
Lee County WMA is named after the county it is in.
The management can be accessed by Highway 131 turning North from Haynes. A county road off 131 can access the south end of the WMA.
The area was established as a WMA in 1970.
No camping allowed.
The management is comprised of old agricultural fields, which have been reforested providing a home for an abundance of wildlife including small game and an assortment of birds.
- Hunting Opportunities
Hunting opportunities exist for deer, turkey and small game.
Lee County is located South of Haynes, Arkansas near Crowley's Ridge.
- Management Practices
Reforestation of old agriculture fields provides abundant habitat for wildlife.
The small FMHA tract was deeded to the AGFC in 1991.
It was acquired to provide additional public use opportunities.
- Restaurants and Other Facilities

Lee County has a good population of rattlesnakes. When visiting, be cautious and observant.
