Seven state boating access sites, one state dock and several public fishing piers are located within a short drive from the park. Saginaw Bay provides excellent perch, walleye, salmon and lake trout fishing. The nearby Pigeon and Pinnebog Rivers and the shoreline of Saginaw Bay are available for canoeists.

Those using the hiking and cross-country trails also have access to 2,200 acres of the adjacent Rush Lake State Game Area, an area of forests and wetlands populated by many types of wildlife. Many rustic trails course through the Game Area for the more adventurous visitor.

Five miles to the west is the small resort town of Caseville which has a variety of entertaining diversions as well as a busy schedule of special events. Boat charters, horseback riding, canoe and kayak rentals are also located near the park.

The park first opened as a county park in 1925. In 1927 the state acquired the property and called it Huron State Park. In 1944, the park was renamed in honor of Albert E. Sleeper, governor of Michigan (1917-1920) and resident of Huron County, who signed into law the statute that created the state park system.
