Redfish Lake offers excellent boating, water skiing, canoeing, kayaking and fishing for rainbow trout and Kokanee salmon. Little Redfish Lake is just down the road, offering additional fishing and canoeing.

A designated swimming beach and dock are located at the adjacent public day-use area. Sandy Beach Boat Ramp is across the lake, about a mile away.
