Wilderness camping is allowed, but no facilities are provided.
If you must have a fire, please burn only dead and down wood, and be sure to extinguish the fire fully. Dead wood is also an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil. Please use it conservatively, if at all. Be prepared to bring a portable stove for cooking.
Canoeing is the best way to see Flat Lake Park with its series of small lakes. To paddle the entire chain usually takes two days. Kayaking is possible, though since portages are frequent, it is more tiring.
Pets and 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. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears. If you must bring your dog, ensure it is under control at all times.
