The Sturgeon river begins at an unnamed spring between the Simcoe Highlands and the western edge of the Oro Moraine, and just west of the community of Horseshoe Valley in Oro-Medonte. It passes north through Craigs Swamp, then under Ontario Highway 400 and into Springwater southeast of the community of Hillsdale. It flows over Rumbles Dam and re-enters Oro-Medonte. The river continues north, passes under Simcoe County Road 23 into Tay, then passes under Ontario Highway 12 and through the communities of Sturgeon Bay and Sturgeon Beach to reach its mouth at Sturgeon Bay on Severn Sound, part of Georgian Bay on Lake Huron.
