Winding through Tishomingo State Park is Bear Creek, a scenic stream settled within the bluffs of the park. The park offers a 6.25-mile canoe float trip down the rocky-bottomed stream with the take-out point at park. The float trip operates daily from mid-April until mid-October, (weather and water level permitting). Scenic sandstone bluffs, lush greenery, a canopy of mixed hardwoods and pines, shoals, and Class I rapids with long pools between provide  for an enjoyable and exciting trip for all ages.
