Only electric trolling motors, oars and paddles are allowed on all county owned lakes. There is a designated swimming beach area. Hiking trails offer opportunities to explore the marsh, native trees, shrub plantings, native prairies and food plots. 

Two campgrounds, Bellamy and Riverside, offer 95 sites (53 with full hookups and 42 with electricity & water), modern restrooms and showers.

The Union Bridge Trail connects the park to the town of Correctionville with a ten-foot-wide concrete path that winds through scenic areas and crossing the Little Sioux River with a spectacular bridge.  (6/27/24 Closed indefinitely due to flood damages.)
