Just 5 minutes away, the park offers an array of activities such as an Olympic-sized pool at the Water Park, Canyon Rim Zip-Lines, Elk Tours, Rock Climbing, Pedal Boat, Canoe, and Kayak Rentals on Laurel Lake, Fishing, 10 distinct Hiking Trails, Mountain Bike & E-Bike Rentals, Russell Fork River Kayaking, River access points at Ratliff Hole, Center Creek, and Garden Hole, Picnic Areas, Gift Shop, Playground, Rhododendron Restaurant, and an Amphitheater.

The park sits on the Virginia/Kentucky border and is one of only two Interstate Parks in the nation. Spanning 4,500 acres of wooded terrain and mountain vistas, it includes the renowned "Grand Canyon of the South". Named "Breaks" due to the gap in Pine Mountain formed by the Russell Fork of the Big Sandy River, which carved a stunning 1,000-foot gorge on its journey to the Ohio River. This river boasts the largest canyon east of the Mississippi, a rugged expanse stretching over five miles long and plunging 1,600 feet deep.
