Forks of the Credit is on the famous Bruce Trail. The park features the excitement of the Credit River, as it narrows and rushes through a deep gorge, plunging over a falls. Geological features that were deposited or carved out by retreating glaciers, such as kame hills and kettle lakes, surround the river. The park also includes some of the upland, rolling pasture land that is typical of much of southern Ontario. Hiking and picnicking are favourite activities here. Visitors may fish but hunting is forbidden. Open year-round, the park is popular in winter for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Forks of the Credit is part of the Niagara Parks System, and the Niagara Escarpment Biosphere Reserve. Limited facilities include a parking lot, picnic tables, viewing platforms, toilets and marked trails. There is no camping in the park.
