The park is located about 10 km west of Port Alberni and can be accessed by the Pacific Rim Highway on the way to Tofino via Port Alberni. The fresh water Sproat Lake is a favoured location for swimming, boating, fishing, water-skiing and when the wind is up, wind-surfing.
There are two campgrounds where people can reserve space and come and enjoy some camping in their RV and trailers. Others can enjoy a picnic in the day use area where they can do some sun-bathing by the lakeside.
There are many short trails leading into the forests. One such trail leads to the eastern end of the lake which has some ancient prehistoric petroglyphs, the rock carvings probably depicting some ancient mystical monsters of the lake.
There is a big parking lot for the day picnickers and a number of picnic benches in the open areas. Pit toilets are available in addition to the flush toilets in the day use area. Showers rooms are also there, as well as an area for boat launching.
