Birdwatchers can enjoy a variety of bird species in this Ohio location. The park is home to various waterfowl, including ducks and geese, as well as other birds such as herons and kingfishers that are attracted by the lake's abundant fish population. Wooded areas provide habitat for songbirds like warblers or thrushes while raptors like hawks may be spotted soaring overhead. Birding enthusiasts might also spot owls during evening hours.
Across Lake Logan Road from the beach, the one-mile Pine Vista Hiking Trail circles a hilltop, providing opportunities for nature study and wildlife observation. A section of the Buckeye Trail runs through the northwest end of the park toward Hocking Hills State Forest.
Boats with motors up to 10 horsepower are permitted on the lake. A speed limit of 10 mph is enforced. Sailboating is also popular. Boat tie-ups can be rented at the park office. A launch ramp and boat tie-ups for picnicking fishermen are conveniently located at four of the many picnic areas in the park. Boat docks are also available on a rental basis.
The lake has abundant populations of bluegill, crappie, bass, muskie, catfish, northern pike and saugeye. Fox, squirrel, raccoon, rabbit, deer, waterfowl, turkey and ruffed grouse may be hunted in season. A valid Ohio fishing and/or hunting license is required.
A 527-foot public swimming beach is located on the north shore of the lake on Lake Logan Road (C.R. 3). Facilities include a concession area, drinking water, restrooms and change booths.
