Park facilities

The park features facilities and trails for hiking, cross-country skiing, birdwatching, fishing, boating and camping at one of its 90 campsites or 10 cabins. Although the beach is a major attraction, as of 2015 swimming is not permitted.[3] An 18-hole disc golf course named "Shipwreck Bluff DGC" was constructed at the park in 2015.[4] The park sells discs and clothing related to the course.
