The Parsnip West Forest Service Road (PWFSR) can be reached from Highway 39 by heading north from the closest community of Mackenzie for approximately 10 km. There are two main entry points into the park, both of which are accessed from the PWFSR. The gravel road is suitable for most two-wheel drive vehicles during the summer, but four-wheel drive vehicles are recommended during wet weather. A sign near the 25 km marker of the PWFSR indicates the turnoff to Heather Lake and the site is located less than 1 km from the turnoff. The Dina Lake site is also marked with a sign and is located approximately 31 km on the PWFSR.
