Salt Fork Walk In Turkey Hunting Area is 8,941 acres in size and is located north and east of White Rock Mountain, north of Forest Service (FS) Road 1003, west of FS Road 1506, south of FS Road 1007 on the Boston Mountain Ranger District of the Ozark-St. Francis National Forests. Pursuant to 36 C.F.R. 261.54 and 261.56, forest roads are closed to motor vehicle traffic from April 1 to June 15 each year, except FS road 1510 is open year-round. This portion of the forest is characterized by steep rugged terrain with a predominantly oak/hickory overstory. Access into the interior part of the hunting area is limited, but closed forest roads provide ideal foot paths. This particular area is not recommended for the casual hiker since it is, in addition to breathtaking, steep terrain. There are several maintained wildlife openings and ponds scattered throughout the area which provide for the seasonal food and water needs for abundant wildlife. Spirits Creek and Salt Fork Creek run north-south through the area and provide water most of the year.
