There are three boat ramps on the lake and a full-service marina. The marina provides boat, slip and wet and dry suit rentals along with camping and fishing accessories. Placer Cove is a day-use area on the eastern shore of the lake that has an interpretive trail, boat ramp and lake access.

Most of the recreation opportunities in the park revolve around Steamboat Lake. Fishing is excellent for trout. Boaters can enjoy water skiing and sailing. (A full wet or dry suit is recommended for water-contact sports due to the cold temperature of the water.) Swimming and jet skiing are also popular at the park.
