Bear Creek Lake’s water level is low due to spillway damage. It is recommended that boats be unloaded by hand, such as kayaks, canoes, and flat bottoms. The boat ramp is dangerous for larger trailers, and the end of the boat ramp has been marked. Courtesy docks at campground and boat ramp are dry-docked. The park will still rent flat-bottom boats with motors and kayaks to access the lake.  Storm Creek, Saint Francis River, and Hornor Neck Lake boat launches within Mississippi River State Park are all open.

Storm Creek Campground is closed for construction of a new campground and camper cabins until further notice.
