            • Birding: The Lesser Slave Lake region is a designated Important Bird Area. Up to 20% of the western population of tundra swans stop to feed on the lake. Reeds around the lake provide nesting habitat for a globally important western grebe population. The area has an incredible concentration and diversity of migrant songbirds, including yellow warbler, bay-breasted warbler and red-eyed vireo. A Songbird Festival is held in the park each spring.
            • Boating: Due to the topography of the east end of Lesser Slave Lake, as well as prevailing winds, it is not feasible to have a boat launch inside the park. Motor boats can be launched free of charge at the MD of Lesser Slave River boat launch, south of the park at Lesser Slave River.
            • Golf: Gilwood Golf and Country Club is located in the park.
            • Trails: There are trails for hiking, biking and cross-country skiing. In summer, some trails provide access to beach ridges and sand dunes.
            • Viewpoint: Marten Mountain Viewpoint overlooks Lesser Slave Lake, the largest auto-accessible lake in Alberta.
