Take a day trip to Atwood Lake or make it a longer vacation stay with hotel and camping options available. We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite things to do at Atwood Lake to help you plan your trip!

1. Go Tubing or Boating at Atwood Lake

Are you craving some time on the water during the hot summer season? At Atwood Lake Boats, we have a variety of ways to enjoy a day on the water with family and friends.

There are a range of trails offering different lengths and challenges, so everyone from a seasoned hiker to a casual stroller can enjoy the experience. We recommend starting at the West Marina or Atwood Lake Campground. The trails include bridges and scenery to remember! There is even an observation tower you can visit with breathtaking views of the lake, park, and surrounding areas.

After your walk, hike, or cycle, come down for a refreshing dip at the lake or rent a boat at Atwood Lake Boats! Learn more about the Atwood Lake Park trails here.
