    • Day use only: Midland Provincial Park has no camping facilities.
    • Hiking: The paved trail in McMullen Island Day Use Area connects the Town of Drumhell's trail with the Badlands Interpretive Trail.  The Badlands Interpretive Trail, which is used extensively by the Royal Tyrrell Museum for public and school programs, starts just east of the Museum.  Retrace the footsteps of miners on the Midland Coal Interpretive Trail at Midland Coal Mine Day Use Area.  This trail has numerous interpretive signs and real-life artifacts, and a small gazebo rest stop at the mid-way point.
    • History: Midland Provincial Park was established in 1979 to conserve a significant chapter in Alberta's coal mining history.  Explore local mining history at Midland Coal Mine Day Use Area with the old mining company office and the Midland Coal Interpretive Trail.
    • Palaeontology: Visit the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology, situated in the west end of the park.    Note: The Royal Tyrrell Museum and Midland Provincial Park are located just outside the Town of Drumheller.  Dinosaur Provincial Park is NOT located near Drumheller; it's at least a two-hour drive away.
    • Wildlife safety: Cougars frequent the badlands and river valley at Midland Provincial Park.  Download Preventing Conflict With Wildlife–Cougars for tips.
