One of the most popular activities in Shakamak, the three lakes are well-stocked with bass, panfish, and bluegill. During the summer, get out on the water in a boat to see what you can catch, and in winter, the family can experience ice fishing on the lakes too.
There are paved roads running right around the three lakes, perfect for cycling with the family. Stop along the way to paddle in the water, have a picnic on the shore, or to let the kids play in the park's playground.
Lake Shakamak is safe for swimming, and there's a pool shelter open in the summer months for parents to relax as the kids have fun. If you want to take a break from the water, the swimming area is close to the playground and nature center, which hosts ranger-led events during the summer.
