    • Access: The "road" to Orloff Lake only goes a portion of the way. In dry weather, this road is good but dead ends near Rock Island Forestry Tower. When the road is wet, it can be very slick and muddy. The remaining trail into Orloff Lake is approximately 4 km, accessible by ATV or foot only. This trail can be in very poor condition when wet. In dry conditions, it is a fair trail at best (lots of mud holes and trail braiding). Only the last 400 meters of this trail is within the park. There has been no trail maintenance.
    • Camping: Random backcountry camping is permitted. There are no developed camping facilities in the park.
    • Removal of Personal Property: All personal property left in Otter-Orloff Lakes Wildland Park will be considered abandoned.  This includes boats, trailers, camping equipment, tents and home-made structures.  Questions or concerns may be directed to the Athabasca District Office of Alberta Parks at 780-675-8213.
    • OHV Riding: On existing trails only. Off-trail use is prohibited.
