Bush camping is permitted anywhere in the National Park but not within 500 metres of any road – no dogs are permitted. It is recommended that campers carry a fuel stove.

A summit on the plateau named Legges Tor is the second-highest point in Tasmania at 1572 metres high. Ben Lomond is the only Skifield in northern Tasmania, and one of only 2 in the state.
