The park features a nine-hole golf course with a clubhouse. The golf course was built in 1972 and is a 9-hole, regulation-length course with a driving range.[4]

The park also features vacation cottages, a modern campground with electricity and a bathhouse, laundry and camp store. There is a scenic picnic area with tables, grills, pavilions and a comfort station. The park also provides boat launching facilities.[2]
