Pembina Valley is a wide river valley with a maximum width of 6.5 km (4 miles). Home to numerous small creeks that flow into the Pembina River the valley has many shorelines to offer. The northern and southern slopes are mostly forested with a variety of deciduous trees and shrubs. The park contains approximately 12.7 km (8 miles) of hiking trails.
Rural roads between La Rivière and Pembina Valley Provincial Park offer a multitude of habitats and six Wildlife Management Areas provide more areas for bird watching. A Rocha Prairie Canada Field Station and Pembina Valley Provincial Park give birders access to 220 ha (540 acres) of the valley ideal for viewing many of the local songbirds.
