Waubonsie is a great place for a family picnic. A scenic open picnic shelter may be reserved online through the park reservation system.

There are 40 campsites, 24 with electrical hookups, modern shower and rest room facilities and a trailer dump station. The equestrian campground contains 32 campsites and non-modern rest room facilities. Advance campsite reservations can be made online through the park reservation system. Half of the campsites are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

There are 7 miles of foot trails and 8 miles of equestrian trails winding along windswept ridges down into gorges and valleys. Waubonsie offers the hiker a wonderful experience. The scenery along the trails is incomparable. The horseback rider will likewise enjoy the trails and the opportunity to use the equestrian campground. The Sunset Ridge Interpretive Trail provides visitors a chance to learn about many of the park's important plants and trees, as well as enjoy some tremendous views. Waubonsie State Park is a site on the national Lewis and Clark Historical Trail.

The former Nature Center of the girl scout camp is available for group rentals year-round. This building will be renovated and updated in the future.

Visitors to Waubonsie can now enjoy access to Wa-Shawtee's peaceful little fishing pond, the seven-acre Lake Virginia. The lake which boasts a good stock of channel catfish, largemouth bass, and bluegill is also a great opportunity for canoeists and kayakers. Onsite parking is available with boat ramp access. Regulations include an Electric Motor Only restriction.
