The mighty Humber River flows into the lake and provides some of the best salmon fishing that this province has to offer. The sandy shores of Deer Lake provide excellent availability for swimming, sailing, canoeing and kayaking. Camping lots are available at the Deer Lake Municipal Park and the Gateway to the North RV Park.

Located adjacent to the Deer Lake Regional Airport is the beautiful Humber River Gold Course, which offers a nine-hole course, clubhouse, power carts, and a driving range. Beyond golf, the resort offers luxury vacation condominiums, chalets, and a rejuvenating wellness spa. The Eagles Perch Clubhouse, perched 400 feet above the Humber River, provides breathtaking panoramic views of Deer Lake and the Appalachian Mountains. This scenic backdrop makes the resort an ideal venue for weddings, conventions, and various events.
