The park contains rock formations dating to the Devonian and Mississippian epochs of the Paleozoic era. This is the only location where these two formations are found in the State of Mississippi.

An eight-mile canoe float trip down Bear Creek operates daily from mid-April until mid-October. A junior Olympic size swimming pool is located near the park lodge. In addition, the park offers opportunities for hiking, fishing, family camping and group camping, cabin-stays, and playing fields for sports.
