Plenty of amenities are available at the lake to make fishing trips or family vacations a pleasant success. Camping options are available at numerous locations around the lake. Fishing enthusiasts will find over 50 miles of shoreline to explore - some for fishing from the bank, while most is easily accessible by boat. There are half a dozen boat launch areas for launching everything from kayaks and canoes to pontoons, sailboats and fishing boats. Anglers fish here for bass, catfish, crappie, walleye, sunfish, hybrid stripers and northern pike. Catfish, stripers and pike grow to bragging size and the lake has a healthy population of bass. In winter, ice fishing for crappie, walleye and sunfish is quite popular.
