Area Type





Cane Creek Lake is relatively young, having been built in the late 1980s. It is a cooperative project between the AGFC, Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism and the Soil Conseration Service. The standing timber in the lake has slowly deteriorated over the last few decades, but abundant aquatic vegetation offers ample habitat for sunfish species, such as bluegill, redear sunfish, crappie and largemouth bass.
