Powder Point Day Use Area is located within Hidden Lake Territorial Park on the Ingraham Trail, a little more than 45km east of Yellowknife, and on the eastern arm of Prelude Lake. Powder Point offers access to both the the Lower Cameron River Canoe Route and the Powder Point Canoe Route. The first short canoeing portage up some rapids towards both the Lower Cameron River, and the Hidden Lake routes, can be seen across the Lake if you look to your right from the parking lot.
Access Hidden Lake Territorial Park by water (or by ice, in winter) from Powder Point. An interpretive display at the water's edge describes some of the features of the park that make it unique.
