The creek is managed by the McHenry County Conservation District with the exception of the sections that flow through private property. The creek has a mean annual water discharge of 159 cubic feet per second and closes when water levels reach 650 cubic feet as this makes passing under the creek's two bridges a dangerous affair.

Shorebirds, water fowl and other wading birds can be seen along the shorelines in addition to native plants. The creek itself is a shallow, calm waterway with some riffles that is a popular with kayakers and canoers during the spring and summer months; with three distinct launch sites - Keystone Landing, Pioneer Landing, and the Nippersink Canoe Base.
