The park is located on the north-eastern shore of the Lesser Slave Lake (while Hilliard's Bay Provincial Park, Lesser Slave Lake Wildland and Grouard Trail Park Reserve stand on the north-western shore), 12 km north from the town of Slave Lake on Highway 88.

  • Marten Mountain Viewpoint (983 metres) overlooks the lake.
  • The Boreal Centre for Bird Conservation, formerly known as the Lesser Slave Lake Bird Observatory, is located in the park. The centre is a transit place for more than 246 bird species (including 23 species of wood warblers).
