Anglers have been known to catch trout and walleye, and the windswept waters provide an opportunity for wind surfers to get some time on the uncrowded waters. This reservoir is a kayak fisherman's dream, with gentle banks for easy launching or beaching and very little boat traffic.
Goldeneye is an excellent example of a cooperative management effort with three different landownerships being managed as one unit--733 acres of public land; 280 acres of state land; and, 140 acres of private land. The area is accessible year-round.
Recreation facilities include a 1-mile graveled access road, a graveled parking area for 130 vehicles, a boat-launch ramp, a two-unit vault toilet, informational signs, and an established picnic area. Swimming is also allowed in the reservoir.
