Bear Creek Lake’s water level is low due to spillway damage. It is recommended that boats use caution while unloading on the Bear Creek Lake Boat Ramp while water is low. Courtesy docks at the campground and boat ramp are dry-docked. The park continues to 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 open.

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