Guests can fish, swim, kayak or whitewater raft in the Kings River. The river is swift and cold and can be dangerous at peak flows in April through June but becomes very tranquil in late summer and fall. The section of the Kings River from Garnet Dike to Pine Flat Lake is open to fishing year round with a two fish limit. A California fishing license is required.

There are trails on both the north and south side of the river for hiking and horseback riding and roads for off-road vehicles.

The area is great for wildlife viewing, bird watching and artistic pursuits such as painting and photography.
