Swimming in this large lake is usually limited to the warmest months of the year (July & August).
Boating is popular on Babine Lake and the Pinkut Creek Site provides a good launching and landing site for people wishing to visit the southern end of the lake. Visitors in small boats should use caution as large waves can develop without warning.

Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.

Wildlife viewing
This site provides great opportunity for viewing eagles in the fall during the salmon spawning season.
Pets on leash
Pets/domestic animals must be on a leash at all times and are not allowed in beach areas or park buildings. You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement.

The park is open to hunting. Please consult the Hunting & Trapping Regulations Synopsis for more information.
