The reservoir is one of the state's most popular fishing spots, with freshwater fishing competitions often hosted at the site. The park, therefore, offers a fish cleaning station and a spacious double ramp boat launch. You can also rent a flat bottom boat at the park, and then get to angling for largemouth bass, bream, white perch, and catfish.
The park's Olympic-sized swimming pool, open from Memorial Day to Labor Day (check exact hours and cleaning times in advance, online or at the park) is equipped with restrooms, a nearby concession area, and is fun for the whole family.
Whether you're cooking up your own catch of the day or not, kicking back and relaxing together over a picnic lunch or dinner at North Toledo Bend State Park is a great way to spend time together as a family.
