Flag Spring Conservation Area is in Barry and McDonald counties, west of Washburn. The Conservation Department acquired the land for this 3,946-acre area between 1983 and 1992.
The area is primarily forested, with oak, hickory, eastern red cedar, and other species native to the region common.
Flag Spring, located on the west side of the property, flows year-round.
Deer and squirrels are relatively abundant. Wild turkeys have been stocked on the area and are now present in good numbers.
There is an unmanned shooting range on Flag Springs. The Range is Closed on Mondays for Maintenance.
