This gentle free-flowing river is a popular destination for recreational canoeing and kayaking, as well as recreational fishing and crabbing. The river has also become a hotspot for water sports such as wakeboarding and water skiing due to its consistently smooth surface. Barge traffic on the river has made Salisbury the primary shipping points for goods on the Delmarva Peninsula over the last several centuries. Two automobile cable ferries cross the river at Whitehave and Upper Ferry.
There are various tributaries and ponds which contribute to the Wicomico River: Beaverdam Creek, Colbourne Mill Pond, Johnson Pond, Parker Pond, Rockawalkin Creek, Schumaker Pond, Shiles Creek, Tony Tank Pond, and Wicomico Creek.
