I don't live in AR anymore, but I did for a few years. February can be cold. Weather can change quickly, but thats generally going to be the coldest month- if you get snow or ice storms, thats when it comes. You can see monthly averages for Jasper (nearest town to HCR) on weather.com or any other weather site. Averages are about 50 during the day, 30 at night, BUT if its ever going to drop to 0 in AR, thats when its gonna happen.
As for other sources to contact locals, I always used rockclimbing.com in Arkansas, it has a lot more info on local routes. There is a great AR guidebook that came out a few years ago: www.bentgate.com/rock-climbing-arkansas.html
HRC does have cabins if you want wifi, ect. Other than that, you'll have to drive to Jasper.
Hope that helps some.
