A campground at the lake provides a small boat ramp; only boats with a small engine of one horsepower or less are allowed on the lake. Kayaking and canoeing are also a popular activity here. Fishing is permitted; the water is well stocked with Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout and Channel Catfish. Unfortunately swimming is prohibited, but there's plenty of space for children to run around and burn off some energy.
