Cameron Reservoir is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Access to the banks of the reservoir is for anglers only, although there is a footpath for visitors, set 20-30m back from the banks, that runs around the entire reservoir. This footpath is fairly accessible but in some areas it can become very overgrown or be wet underfoot at certain times of the year. There is a viewing point on the south bank of the reservoir where you can expect to see lots of birdlife including many varieties of waterfowl, mute swans, herons, gulls, oystercatchers, buzzards, owls and ospreys. Common animals around the banks of Cameron reservoir include badger, Otter, rabbits, foxes and deer. 

There is a small car park at the reservoir which is free to visitors, although visitors are politely requested to keep the entrace to 'Cameron House' free and ensure spaces are available for anglers at all times. Visitors are asked to keep to the signposted CORE PATHS and take all litter home. Dogs must be kept on leads.
