Sylvan Lake lies among the lands of the White River National Forest. This is a 155 acre park with a 40 surface-acre lake as the focus of activity. This park is described as peaceful, quiet and a gem.

There are two campgrounds on the northwestern shore that provide tables and grills at each site, plus access to water, showers and vault toilets. A group site is available for reservations. There are ten rustic cabins that are available to rent on site, too. The public lands of the White River National Forest provide access to hiking, backpacking, horseback riding and mountain biking trails, for visitors to the park.

The focus of activity at this park is Sylvan Lake. It is stocked with rainbow and brook trout. Anglers may use electrically-powered or non-motorized boats on Sylvan Lake. During the winter months visitors enjoy ice fishing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling.
