The lake has an incredible marine life, with wide numbers of rainbow trout and redfin perch and freshwater marron which make for fantastic fishing opportunities as they easily take flies. Trout fishing season (1st of September up tip the 30th of June) is at its best at the beginning of September, as the spring waters warm up before the heat of summer. The lake has gentle sloping shores and picturesque beaches.

The park has a broad choice of accommodation, from cottages, cabins and park homes to eco-powered caravans and lakeside campsites for the daring.
