The lake is circled by more than 30km of mostly unpaved roads, which pass a series of hides and observation points, and can be driven in normal vehicles except after heavy rain. Take binoculars.

There are two interpretation centres: the bright modern Centro de Interpretación Laguna de Gallocanta in Gallocanta village near the north end of the lake, and an older, smaller centre on the Tornos-Bello road the near the lake's south end.
