The park is a great home base for bicycle tour groups.
There are many fishable lakes and streams in the area. Fishing at Curlew Lake is excellent for rainbow trout. The lake also offers fishing for large and small-mouth bass and, for the more adventurous, tiger muskies. The minimum catch size for tiger muskies is 50 inches. A recreational license is required for fishing and shellfish harvesting at Washington state parks. For regulations, fishing season information or to purchase a recreational license, visit the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife website.
Rock hounds and the archaeologically curious may explore the nearby Stone Rose public dig site. A trip to Grand Forks in Canada is a nice day trip for the family.
