With more than 22 miles of shoreline, the lake holds more than 17,000 acre-feet of water, 75% of which has a water level of at least 20 feet. The gate is open from 30 minutes before sunrise to 30 minutes after sunset. The beaches are open from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Water sports (boating, jet skiing, water skiing and swimming) are limited to the northern two thirds. The southern third is dedicated to fishing and is a no wake area. Fishing is permitted in the water sports area as well. The lake is stocked with bass, bluegill, sunfish, catfish and crappie.
