The park has about 25 small campsites with water and electric hookups. There are about 16 of the most wooded walk in tent sites I've seen is the state park system. There is also a sponsored youth group camping site. In addition there is also a day use area for family picnics and day hikers and bicyclist.

The park's 1090 acres has over eight miles of wooded hike and bike trails. The trails are reasonably flat and are a perfect way to see all that the park has to offer.

If the creek is the main feature of the park the trees are the most "alive" part of the park. With all the plant life that the Big Thicket has to offer in provides a perfect home for wildlife. The cypress swamps; water tupelo, river birch, mayhaw and yaupon trees, are home to over 200 species of birds.

Wildlife is also abundant and includes snapping turtles, white-tailed deer, diamondback water snakes, opossums, spring peepers, crickets, bull frogs and nine-banded armadillos. There is also fishing in Village Creek, with catfish, bass, perch and panfish.

It's a small park that is good for a day visit or for a week.
