Indian Lake State Park offers a diversity of water-related recreational opportunities. Boating, fishing, skiing, and camping are highlights of this multi-use park. There are 441 family campsites suitable for tents or trailers on the northwest section of the lakeshore. The scenic campground offers electric hookups for most sites, heated shower houses, flush toilets, a laundry facility, and a camp commissary. A beach, boat ramp, and boat docks are provided for exclusive camper use. Twenty boat camping spaces are also available. Three Deluxe Camper Cabins furnished with convertible futon bunks and sofa, microwave, refrigerator, and outdoor gas grill may be reserved. These sites do not accommodate tents. One Rent-A-RV travel trailer equipped with a queen-size bed and two twin beds is available. Other amenities include A/C, refrigerator, gas stove, microwave, TV/VCR, and coffeemaker. The 5,800-acre lake offers unlimited horsepower boating and features four boat ramps and boat docks for rental. Skiing is popular in the open zone area. Indian Lake is the only inland lake in Ohio with lighted buoys for night navigation. The Cherokee Trail, a 3-mile easy walk through brushy habitat, is located west of the camp. The Pew Island Trail, a 1-mile path, encircles Pew Island. Access is available to Pew Island from a causeway. This trail affords a spectacular view of Indian Lake. A paved bikeway is located on the West Bank between Old Field Beach and Lakeview Harbor. The bikeway is 3 miles long. Walkers and joggers are welcome to use the bikeway.
