Visitors have many opportunities to explore the natural beauty of the wetland forest. Hiking trails surround the pond, providing opportunities to glimpse native animal species and many flowering plants. Birdwatching is a popular activity and the observant hiker may spot a Great Blue Heron, owl, hummingbird, warbler, Bald Eagle or the elusive Pileated Woodpecker. Visitors who wish to stay overnight at the park may camp at one of the 142 campsites on the pond's northern shore. 130 of the sites are equipped with water and electric hookups. Tents and recreational vehicles can both be accommodated beneath the tall loblolly pines. Two primitive camping areas are also available for youth groups by reservation only. There are also yurts available at the park.
