There are a few wilderness tent sites and hikers can follow the short trail to nearby Black Lake, a popular summer spot for those attracted to the lake’s warm water. Recreational activities in the 247-hectare park include fishing and freshwater swimming. Facilities are restricted to pit toilets.
Mariners should note the drying shoal at the entrance to Roscoe Bay, and consult the local tide tables before entering or departing the sheltered bay.
