Clear Lake is very popular with anglers of all ages. A variety of fish may be taken in Clear Lake; everything from bluegills and crappies to bass and northerns. To enhance angler enjoyment, a modern fish cleaning station is located near the boat ramp area at McIntosh Woods.
The park has a point or peninsula of land jutting out into the lake. This area includes an unsupervised beach which is popular for swimmers of all ages.
