Lake Hinkle is located about 12 miles west of the town of Waldron in west central Arkansas. The 960-acre impoundment was completed in 1971 by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, the U.S. Forest Service and the U.S. Soil Conservation Service. Some 400 of its acres lie within the Ouachita National Forest.
