A lodge is available on a reservation basis. It is an ideal place for special events such as wedding receptions or family reunions. Lake Keomah's scenic beauty has long made it a very popular picnic spot.

The campground has 65 campsites (41 with electrical hookups), modern showers, rest rooms and a trailer dump station. Advance campsite reservations can be booked through the park reservation system. Half of the campsites are still available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Lake Keomah also has a dining/rest room building available on a reservation basis to organized groups. Camping for group members is allowed nearby. See the document Group Camp Rental Reservation for specifics on reservation policy and specific rates, damage deposits and reservation deposits.

The park's wooded terrain provides great hiking year-round. There is a multi-use trail which runs along the lake shore. In winter, snowmobiles may be operated on designated trails.

Spring and summer fishing for crappie, bluegill, largemouth bass and channel catfish is excellent. Ice fishing is popular in winter. A fishing jetty is available on the west shoreline and is accessible to persons of varying abilities. Electric motors only are allowed and 2 boat ramps provide easy access to the lake.

Lake Keomah has an unsupervised swimming beach. The beach is a great place for young and old alike on hot summer afternoons.

Lake Keomah State Park is 366 acres of beautiful woods and water. Lovely shaded picnic areas are nestled between the arms of the 83 acre man-made lake. During the summer the open water, grasslands, deep woods and marshy areas provide habitat for all types of wildlife. Hikers along the park's scenic hiking and nature trails may catch a glimpse of bullfrogs blowing and puffing bass solos, a great blue heron wading the shallows in search of minnows, or a covey of quail rising at the approach of human footsteps. In the fall, the lake is surrounded by a mass of color from a variety of trees and shrubs.
