The Village of North Collins is only a short distance to the south and west of the property.

An active railroad line crosses the gulfslightly beyond the western edge of the park.

There are several unofficial trails marked by red, white, orange, or green paint on trees.  There is another trail partially marked by yellow wooden blocks.

An official snowmobile trail runs through the park.  There are also several old atv trails.  Motorized vehicles (other than snowmobiles on the official trail) are prohibited, as are horses.
