- Birding: American white pelicans and double-crested cormorants forage on the reservoir from April to September. The numbers of non-breeding pelicans in this area are among the highest observed anywhere in Alberta. In spring and fall, the area is an important waterfowl staging area (snow geese, Canada geese, greater white-fronted geese). Blue-winged teals and northern shovelers can be seen in spring and summer. Marbled godwits and long-billed curlews live in the surrounding dry prairie.
- Swimming: McGregor Lake is very cold.
- Ice Safety: Check Canadian Red Cross & My Wild Alberta for safety tips.
