At the Belcarra Picnic Area, the sheltered picnic tables are wheelchair accessible. White Pine Beach has a wheelchair accessible path, picnic tables and beach access (although no direct wheelchair access to the water). All park washroom buildings are wheelchair accessible. There is ramp access to the fishing/boating dock at Belcarra Picnic Area, however at moderate to low tides, the slope may be too steep for disabled access.
Springboard Trail is 4 km long and is primarily a bicycle path, but the chip seal hardened surface is partially wheelchair accessible. There are some steep, switchback sections west of Woodhaven Swamp that would be very challenging for a wheelchair user.
Sasamat Lake Loop has 12 bridges, many with at least one step. There are also 14 sets of steps around the lake, with as little as three steps and as many as 33 steps. There are 147 steps in total. Only one of these sets of steps has a handrail.
