The latest electrofishing survey showed improved catch rates and a decent population structure for bass. The largest bass weighed 7.13 pounds. There is a 15-inch minimum size limit for harvesting bass. Anglers can fish from numerous fishing piers and platforms around the pond. The park rents out row boats for anglers willing to try fishing other areas of the pond. The park caters for a wide variety of activities. There are bike trails, horse trails, hiking trails, picnic shelters, primitive campgrounds, and an interpretive center. Organized group activities are also offered.
