Cache River Natural Area consists mainly of a forested wetland complex along the Cache River in the Mississippi Alluvial Plain. The natural area contains a high-quality river swamp and bottomland hardwood forest plus many miles of the Cache River itself. Much of the forested wetlands that occurred across this part of the state have been cleared for agriculture. Areas such as Cache River Natural Area represent the last remaining fragments of these once extensive forested wetlands. This natural area lies within the Rex Hancock/Black Swamp Wildlife Management Area and is co-managed with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission (AGFC).
