The park features a large 8,200-acre (33 km2) reservoir on the Canadian River that is home to various fish species including largemouth bass, catfish, crappie and walleye. The state-owned Ute Dam creating the reservoir was completed in 1963 without federal funding. The park elevation is 3,900 feet (1,200 m) above sea level.
