For your own safety and the preservation of the park, obey posted signs and keep to designated trails. Shortcutting trails destroys plant life and soil structure. A 300-metre trail connects Norman and Dahl Lakes. The trailhead is at the south end of the beach on Norman Lake. Another rough trail route continues on along the north shore of Dahl Lake.


There are no designated swimming areas or lifeguards on duty. A sandy beach is located at the east end of Norman Lake.


There are opportunities for canoeing or kayaking in this park. To access Dahl Lake with a canoe or kayak, launch at the beach on the east end of Norman Lake, paddle 300 metres south along the shoreline to the creek, and proceed east through the channel about 200 metres into Dahl Lake. Motorized boats are prohibited on Dahl Lake.
