Two modern campgrounds located a short distance from the lake provide 140 campsites (30 with electrical hookups), restroom, shower facilities and a trailer dump station. Advance campsite reservations can be made through the park reservation system. Half of the campsites are still available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

There is also an equestrian campground that provides 22 camp sites, 8 with electrical hookups. In addition, there are 15 holding pens.

A large picnic area with tables and grills is nestled under trees close to the lakeshore. Two open picnic shelters may be reserved online through the park reservation system. One shelter has electricity, tables and running water. There is a playground nearby. A renovated lodge near the beach can be rented for a fee.

Lake of Three Fires is a fine place for a family vacation at an economical cost! The modern cabins will comfortably accommodate four persons each. They have heat/AC and are equipped with a refrigerator, microwave and cooktop stove. Renters must provide bedding, towels, cooking and eating utensils.

The park contains eight miles of marked trails for hikers, horseback riders and snowmobiles. Lake of Three Fires is one of southwest Iowa's most scenic parks and the trails provide great opportunities to experience the beauty year round.

A sandy beach area provides swimming fun for everyone. There is a playground near the beach area plus a sand volleyball court. There is a concrete boat ramp near the beach and one in the south camp area. All motor boats must operate at a no wake speed.

On the north border of the park is a 220 acre public hunting area and on the south border is a 160 acre public hunting area.

The 85-acre Lake of Three Fires is nearly a mile long and a half-mile wide, with scenic inlets ideal for fishing and boating. Surrounding the lake are 691 acres of picturesque woodlands. Although summer is the most popular season, any nice spring or fall day will draw hundreds of picnickers, hikers, photographers and fishermen. There are eight miles of marked trails for hikers, horseback riders, and snowmobilers. Playgrounds are located in the picnic area and at the beach area. There are horseshoe pitching areas at the beach area near the lodge, the camp area and the picnic area.
