  • Hiking & picnicking


East Park Reservoir is a fabulous, year ‘round destination for fishing and outdoor enthusiasts. The lake’s thriving fishery includes catfish, crappie, bluegill, largemouth bass, and smallmouth bass, especially in the autumn.


The road to the reservoir is unpaved and can be dangerous for smaller cars. Driving a truck, SUV or a durable car with 4WD is recommended on the dirt and gravel road, especially during the rainy season.


  • What kind of recreational activities are available?

    The park offers a whole range of outdoor activities, including camping, boating, fishing, water sports, kayaking, hiking, picnicking, and nature watching.
  • What should I know before I go?

    The park only offers primitive campsites with no running water or boat launch ramps. Be sure to pack a shade tent and plenty of sunscreen because trees are sparse. The wind does tend to pick up, so staking tents and easy-ups is a good idea. The west side of the park is open all year, but the southeast side of the reservoir is only open from mid-April through October.
