The conservation park was proclaimed under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1972 in 1987 for:the protection of its geological features, scenic values and native fauna and flora.

The diversity of landforms and habitats in the reserve are significant factors contributing to its conservation value as much of the surrounding land has been used for grazing for over 100 years. As of 1999, it was considered that the Nukunu Aboriginal people are the traditional owners with the possibility of an overlap of jurisdiction with "the Adnyamathanha to the north and with the Parnkalla to the west." The land was the subject of a pastoral lease from the 1880s until acquisition for conservation purposes in 1985. Land within the conservation park has been used as a water catchment with Stoney Creek on the eastern side being "diverted to an engineered channel" that goes to the "Mount Arden dam to supplement the Quorn water supply" while on the western side, run-off "drains into South Creek from where it is piped to serve properties" located to the west. During the 1960s, exploration was carried out in search of mineral deposits which included works such as the construction of the Dutchman Valley track on the western side of the conservation park.

As of 2010, services for visitors include camping and a network of walking trails. Accommodation consisting of the former "Dutchman Homestead and shearers’ quarters" is available for hire from the conservation park's managing authority. Camping using "low impact camping techniques" is permitted on the west side of the conservation park outside of the "Fire Danger Season" from April to November; the walking track network which start in the carpark at the entrance of the conservation park to the north east of the Dutchman Stern ridge consists of three trails -"The Dutchmans Valley Hike," "The Dutchmans Stern Hike" and a pair of trails known as the "Upper & Lower Eastern Tracks.".

The Upper and Lower Eastern Tracks pass along the eastern boundary of the conservation park. The Heysen Trail, a long distance trail, passes through the conservation park on its east and north sides using parts of the alignment of both the Dutchmans Valley Hike and The Dutchmans Stern Hike.

In the Purishte sociolect the mason is called purja, while the term for the master mason is purja i beshëm. Purishte is notable for incorporating a large share of vocabulary of Romance origin, including most notably elements of Aromanian origin. Several aspects of the Aromanian influences in Purishte may be considered Balkanisms.
