McIntosh Woods State Park features a campground that was extensively renovated in the early 1980s. The campground has 49 campsites, 45 with electricity. A modern rest room and shower building are present, as well as a playground for little ones. 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.

A one-mile nature trail takes visitors into the heart of McIntosh Woods and signs describe different features of the park.

McIntosh Woods State Park is one of the major boating access points for Clear Lake. A modern boat ramp is present with an extensive paved area for vehicle and trailer parking.

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.

McIntosh Woods State Park is located on the northwest shore of beautiful 3,684-acre Clear Lake. The 60-acre park, purchased in 1943, is an oasis of nature in an area of residential, commercial and agricultural land.
