The Arkansas Timberlands, sometimes also called Southern Arkansas or Southwestern Arkansas, is a region of the U.S. state of Arkansas. It can be roughly defined by Sevier County in the northwest, Jefferson County in the northeast, Ashley County in the southeast, and Miller County in the southwest. Some notable towns there include Pine Bluff, Star City, Monticello, Crossett, El Dorado, Bearden, Camden, Magnolia, Hope, and Texarkana. Dense pine and cypress forests covered the hilly terrain and lined the numerous rivers of the Timberlands until modern settlement created a significant logging industry and subsequent clearance agriculture which provided the basis of the local economy until the discovery of petroleum. Local tourism is largely based on the popularity of deer hunting and bass fishing. Attractions there include Marks' Mills Battleground Historical Monument, Jenkins' Ferry Battleground Historical Monument, Overflow National Wildlife Refuge, Felsenthal National Wildlife Refuge, South Arkansas Arboretum, Arkansas Museum of Natural Resources, White Oak Lake State Park, Poison Spring State Park, Millwood State Park, and Pond Creek National Wildlife Refuge. The Arkansas Timberlands was the birthplace of former President of the United States Bill Clinton.
