From Deer Lake and the Trans-Canada Highway, Watts Point is about 340 km up Newfoundland's Northern Peninsula on Route 430. St. Anthony is about 80 km further along.
An abandoned highway 7 km north of Eddies Cove leads to the reserve. Users can also access the reserve by traveling south along the same abandoned road from Route 435, 7 km south of Cook's Harbour. The road is in rough shape with several washouts so access is limited.
Off-road vehicles, including ATVs and snowmobiles, are prohibited in the reserve.
