Anyone hunting in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence. Check the B.C. Hunting Regulations for seasons and closures.
The resorts at the east end of the lake can be reached by travelling about 25 km along the Lemieux Creek Valley road from Little Fort (the last part of the road is very rough). Prior arrangements must be made by anyone wishing to avail of any of the services provided by the resorts. A logging road off of highway 24 leads to the southwestern park boundary but there is no access (road or trail) from this road to the lake. The closest communities to the park are Little Fort and Clearwater.
