Ralph Stover State Park is two miles north of Point Pleasant on State Park Road and Stump Road. Situated in eastern Bucks County, the park contains 45 acres along the Tohickon Creek.

Warm-water fish species found in Tohickon Creek include smallmouth bass, sunfish, carp and catfish. The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission stocks trout, a cold-water fish. The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission laws and regulations apply to licensing, seasons and limits.

There is one mile of easy walking trails that pass through many habitats and pass near the millrace. The 'High Rocks' section of the park features an outstanding view of a horseshoe bend in Tohickon Creek and the surrounding forest. Although used by experienced rock climbers, the cliffs are sheer and dangerous. For your own protection, stay behind the safety rail.

When high water conditions exist, Tohickon Creek offers a challenging course for closed-deck canoes and kayaks. Whitewater craft may be launched in the park. At the end of March and the beginning of November there are planned whitewater releases from Lake Nockamixon. The creek contains several drop-offs, especially downstream of the High Rocks cliffs. Paddlers should never boat alone. The Tohickon Creek, with its drop-offs, obstructions and strainers can be very dangerous.

The park has a beautiful shaded picnic area with drinking water, picnic tables, pavilions, fireplaces and restrooms. Picnicking facilities are along the beautiful Tohickon Creek, which was named 'To-Hick-Hanne' meaning 'Deer-Bone-Creek,' by the Leni Lenape.
