Beed's Lake State Park is a beautiful place for a family picnic or cookout. Its grassy shaded picnic areas provide many opportunities for relaxation. The stone and timber beach building built by the Civilian Conservation Corps has been converted to a rental lodge. The lodge is complete with dining areas, a kitchen and rest rooms and may be reserved for a fee.

Beed's Lake has a very popular campground. A total of 99 of the 144 sites have electrical hookups. Modern restroom and shower facilities are available, as is a sanitary dump station. Half of the campsites are still available for self-registration on a first-come, first-serve basis.

A two-mile trail provides a unique hiking experience for visitors as it follows the shoreline around Beed's Lake. At the spillway, visitors can hike to the base of the dam and experience a cool refreshing mist as water rolls down the beautiful limestone face. This trail may be utilized by hikers, bicyclists, cross-country skiers and joggers.

The sandy beach for swimming is located on the south side of the lake, near the lodge and causeway. It is a great place to enjoy the water on a hot summer day.

The beautiful lake, fed by Spring Creek, is a popular destination for anglers, year-round. Bass, catfish, and panfish are available to challenge anglers. Several fishing jetties and docks are located on the south shore of the lake and are accessible to mobility impaired visitors.

Beed's Lake is a popular boating spot due to its scenic beauty. Motors of any size may be used at "no wake" speeds on the lake. A modern boat ramp is located on the southern shore of the lake.
