Fisherman on Blue Mountain Lake

Blue Mountain Lake is a perfect place for outdoor recreation enthusiasts to swim, ski, boat, camp, picnic, hunt, or fish. There are two full service parks and three developed parks with water access points on the Lake.  Waveland Park, Ashley Creek, and Lick Creek are on the lake itself; Hise Hill is on the Petit Jean River upstream of the lake; and Outlet Area Park is on the river immediately downstream of Blue Mountain Dam. These parks offer 8 boat launching ramps, 1 designated swimming beach, 1 group picnic shelter, 2 playgrounds, and miles of undeveloped scenic shoreline.


Please Be Aware – Due to unforeseen circumstances such as high lake levels or storm damage, it may be necessary to close certain areas and/or facilities in the parks or on the lake. It is recommended that you contact the Blue Mountain Lake Field Office before you leave home if you think this could be a possible issue.
