The varied landscapes of 1,123 acres of sand dunes, prairie woodlands, and wetlands are waiting to be explored. Three hiking trails, including the Cottonwood Interpretive Trail, and five horse and multi-use trails invite visitors to enjoy the wonders of nature year-round.

Two wildlife observation blinds allow visitors to observe nature in action.  Parking and walk-in entrances to the park are located east of Highway 61 on both 56th and 69th Streets.

A campground has been established with 64 utility sites; 44 sites have water, sewer, and electricity; 20 sites have just water and sewer.  All sites have 50 amp service, a fire ring, lantern stand, picnic table, and upright covered grill.  There is a four unit family shower building/restroom.  The campground surrounds a five-acre pond stocked with mainly channel catfish.

Archery hunting for deer and turkey as well as upland game is allowed by special permit.
