The boating site consists of a small concrete ramp, restroom, parking for trucks and trailers about 1/2 way up the length of the reservoir. This lake is regularly stocked with catchable rainbow trout and also supports a natural population of Brook Trout. A small, free campground is located at the head of the reservoir.
