Surrounding the lakes are 60 campsites that include tables and grills. A dump station and picnic facilities are also available on site. A short nature trail and guided nature walks provide information about the environment and wildlife of the park. This facility is open year-round.

No-wake boating, bird watching and nature photography are popular during the spring, summer and fall. During the winter months visitors enjoy ice fishing, ice skating and cross-country skiing.

This park is located east of Longmont on the lake-laden plains of central Colorado. Interstate 25 lies immediately east of the park and provides easy access to the facilities.
