Beartown State Park is located in the city of Hillsboro in Greenbrier. Local residents named the park Beartown because they believe that the openings in the rocks serve as caves or dens for black bears living in the area. The 170 acre land was purchased in 1970 with donations from the Nature Conservancy and from Mrs. Edwin G. Polan. Mrs. Polan made the donation as an honor to her son, Ronald Keith Neal, who died in the Vietnam War.

Development and maintenance of the park is made possible through the basic facilities provided to it such as a boardwalk that allows easy access and interpretive signs that served as guide to visitors. The Beartown State Park is open from April to October but closes during the winter season.
