Rainbow Trout is stocked annually by Fish & Wildlife. Rainbow Trout up to 2 pounds are usually caught here. The daily bag limit is 5 trout/day. Many get out to the lake during the winter months and do some ice fishing. A modern medal fish cleaning stand is located north of the boat launch area.

Many are taking advantage of the warm weather to take a dip in the shallow area of Twin Lakes. There is no life guard on duty, so parents of children must take responsibility for their own child's safety. All Dogs must be on leases and no dogs allowed in the water.

As you first enter the park you will see a modern looking playground, located in the central part of the park, with self-registration area, shelter and washrooms nearby.
