Boat launch
A gravel boat launch is situated at the North end of the Morice Lake campsite. The boat launch is not steep. In fall when the water is low, it is often difficult to get boat trailers into deep enough water to launch.

Waterskiing and windsurfing are not popular activities on Morice Lake due to its very cold temperature.

Campfires are permitted.

Cutting or otherwise damaging any standing or fallen trees within the park is prohibited. Please collect firewood from outside the park.

A series of three short portage trails connects Atna Bay of Morice Lake (Morice Lake Park) with Atna Lake (Atna River Park). No other developed trails exist within the park.

Morice Lake is very cold, but those with a hardy constitution may be interested in a swim. Please do not use soap (even biodegradable) for washing in the lakes. If you must wash with soap, do it at least 50 m (150 ft) inland from the lakeshore. There are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks.
Morice Lake is a beautiful setting for a canoe trip. Winds and waves can come up quickly. Paddle early to avoid the wind and stay close to shore once it starts to blow.

There are kayaking opportunities at this park.
