Located along the banks of the scenic Pedernales River, the park is a favorite for family hikes, with a duck pond, a quarter-mile nature trail to a scenic overlook of Twin Falls, and a wheelchair-friendly wildlife-viewing station. Longer trails are also available. Other activities include camping, picnicking, river swimming, tubing, wading, mountain biking, fishing, bird watching (checklist available), and horseback riding. River recreation is in a limited area beginning at the Youth Group Camping area and continuing downriver to the park boundary.
