There is a primitive boat ramp on the east shore for canoers; no motors are permitted on this lake. The lake has a nice beach, and swimming is allowed, though it can be very cold. Several trailheads originate on the perimeter of the lake as well as back along the road toward Sisters. The Park Meadow trail heads right up into the Three Sisters Wilderness.
