Emmet is a city spanning Hempstead and Nevada counties in the U.S. state of Arkansas. The population was 506 at the 2000 census.

The former Arkla Village, a re-creation of a 19th-century frontier town located near Emmet off U.S. Highway 67, operated from the late 1950s until the late 1960s.Arkla Village held a roundup near the end of the summer with a marksman invited to participate. In 1961, Harold Terry of Shreveport, a deputy and later the sheriff of Caddo Parish, Louisiana, was the invited marksman. The Hope Star newspaper, in an article announcing his appearance at the roundup, called Terry "one of the Southwest's outstanding shooting experts with pistol, rifle and shotgun."
