The park covers 1,258 acres (5.09 km2) along the Huron River and has hike-bike trails and two self-guided nature trails. In the winter, the park has ice skating ponds and cross-country skiing. The park also has a water slide amusement facility, the Turtle Cove Family Aquatic Center. There is a 27-site campground, a group campground and canoe camping in the park.
Situated in the flood plain of the Huron River, some parts of the park may flood, especially when Belleville Dam releases excess water.
