The lake provides for many recreational activities: swimming, boating, fishing, and snowmobiling, for tourism and for residential development. Both the lake and its shores provide habitats for several wildlife species, such as sea run elwives, smelts, smallmouth bass, white perch, black crappie, and many bird species.
