The Pennsylvania Game Commission manages approximately 3,000 acres of adjacent land for wildlife purposes including a waterfowl propagation area. The Ohio portion of the lake is managed by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources also for wildlife management.

History buffs will enjoy exploring the remnants of the Erie Extension Canal, sections of which are located next to the lake.
