The Strawberry River is a tributary of the Black River, about 115 miles (185 km) long,[1] in northern Arkansas in the United States.[2] Via the Black and White rivers, it is part of the watershed of the Mississippi River.[3]

The Strawberry River rises in eastern Fulton County and flows generally southeastwardly through Izard, Sharp and Lawrence counties; it joins the Black River in the northeastern extremity of Independence County,[4] 10 miles (16 km) north of Tuckerman.[2] A minor headwater tributary of the Strawberry River is known as the Little Strawberry River.[4][5]
