The park includes a beach, picnic tables with pavilions, a playground, recreation programs, a nature trail, hiking and biking, a bridle path, seasonal turkey and deer hunting, fishing and ice fishing, a campground with tent and trailer sites, sledding, ice skating, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling, a boat launch with boat rentals, and a food concession.
