Rocky Creek Conservation Area
With almost 40,000 acres of public land, the Rocky Creek Conservation Area provides for a wide range of outdoor activities. These include nature viewing, bird watching, hiking, dispersed primitive camping, and, of course, many hunting and fishing opportunities. Rocky Creek provides access to the Current River just south of the Highway 106 bridge near Powdermill and Owls Bend east of Eminence. The conservation area is also home to an auto driving tour that explores a 1300 acre pine oak woodland restoration project.
The Rocky Creek Conservation Area contains over 38,000 acres in the south and east parts of Shannon County. Major tracts can be accessed from Highway 19, Routes H, and E going south off of Highway 106. Additional tracts are located north and south of Highway 106 starting five miles east of Eminence, continuing to the Reynolds County line. Tracts vary in size from over 6,000 acres to 80 acres. Access to areas varies from paved roads to unimproved woods roads, to areas that are only accessible by foot. Detailed ownership maps are available from the Eminence District Office.
