Campfires are permitted within the fire rings provided. Visitors must supply their own firewood. To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the park. Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil. You can conserve firewood and air quality by keeping your campfire small. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented in some parks. Be prepared to bring a portable stove for cooking.

The park has a fascinating nature trail that winds through lush coastal rainforest. The trail is moderate and the length is approximately 3 km return. 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.
Swimming is available in Diana Lake. The beach is a mixture of rock and sand. There is a dam adjacent to the day-use area. There are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks.
There are paddling, canoeing and kayaking opportunities at this park. Sea kayak rentals are available in Prince Rupert.

All five species of Pacific salmon, as well as steelhead, rainbow trout and dolly varden, can be found in the lakes and creeks around this park. Observe spawning salmon in Diana Creek in August and September. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.
