There are no visitor facilities at Egan Chutes Provincial Park . However, a short walk along an unmaintained road will take visitors to three picturesque waterfalls within the nature reserve. Mineral collecting and camping are prohibited. Ontario’s Living Legacy Land Use Strategy proposed an addition to Egan Chutes Provincial Nature Reserve. The existing nature reserve and the proposed addition of Crown land shoreline portions of the York River may be reclassified as a waterway class provincial park, with nature reserve zone components within the new park.

Access is on the east side of the York River bridge on the north side of Highway 28 east of Bancroft.
