The park offers camping, hiking, nature study, swimming (summer), picnicking, fishing in Buffalo Wallow Pond in the park and nearby Lake Abilene, and biking and walking on park roads.
We went hiking around lake abilene. It was a good little stretch with visible trails the whole way. However hardly any shade at all. Luckily we found a shade half way through so we could enjoy some lunch. Took us about 2.5 hours to get through it.
