The Bogue Chitto River is a major attraction in the area. The river is gentle flowing with sections of swift water and small rapids. You’ ll glide along on the river - canoeing or tubing through the shade of overhanging trees and into sunlit waters. As the currents quicken, you hear the sound of small rapids just around the bend. Get in position and follow the flow.

There are several float trips of different length. You may bring your own canoe or rent a canoe or tube from one of the outfitters on Dogwood Trail (Shuttle service provided by outfitters when you rent). A concrete boat ramp with parking area is located in the park.

After a float on the Bogue Chitto River, try your hand at Magees Creek in Tylertown. Magees Creek is a small stream, described as “a sparkling jewel of a stream.” Smaller canoes are the best choice to navigate its twists and turns. A carry-down boat ramp for access to Magees Creek is located at Holmes Water Park off Highway 198 in Tylertown just minutes from Bogue Chitto Water Park.

Want to bring a group? The pavilion is the perfect facility for any family reunion, corporate picnic, or special event. The pavilion is an open-air structure with concrete floor, ceiling fans, lights, stage area, large barbecue grill, and nearby restrooms and playground. Pavilion reservations are available.

The open field next to the pavilion often becomes the place for an impromptu game of softball, football, volleyball or frisbee.

A family favorite is the old fashioned picnic. There are two picnic areas with picnic tables and barbecue grills. One area is set under trees near the volleyball court and the other is on a bluff near the river.

There are children’s playgrounds located through out the park. The main play area is the day use area on the bluff overlooking the river.
