Although Selkirk does not have dedicated bicycle trails, visitors can cycle along all of the campground roads which are fairly flat and easy to navigate.
Selkirk offers birding opportunities along the hiking trail, in the campground and near the lake. A bird banding station once existed in the park and monitored and banded migrating birds as they crossed Long Point Bay and across Lake Erie on their journey south in the fall and back north in the spring.
Although boating is not offered within the park, boats can be launched at a nearby marina on Sandusk Creek to access the lake in front of the park.
A popular day trip takes paddlers out through the marsh area along Spring Creek and into the lake at the mouth of Sandusk Creek. You can also travel up Sandusk Creek which is outside the park boundary.

Wheeler’s Walk Trail – 1.5 km, 30-40 minutes, easy
This trail takes hikers from the campground side of the park across a marsh wetland, via a boardwalk, to the west side of the park. You will travel through remnants of the forest that pre-date the park and through a White Pine plantation that was planted in the early 1970s.
There is a small beach in the day use picnic area. There is a larger, natural beach fronting the lake however it tends to be pebbly. The water fronting the beach has a gradual drop off. At first entry it is a bit stony but turns to sand soon afterwards.
