Anderson Lake State Park is a 496-acre day-use park with 8,250 feet of freshwater shoreline on the 70-acre lake, which abounds with birds and wildlife.

Anderson Lake is one of the few parks in the area to offer equestrian and bike trails, which slope down to a lake teeming with birds and wildlife. Non-motorized boating is allowed.

The lake may be closed to all water activity due to recurring toxic algae issues. Check with Jefferson County Public Health on their lake status page for lake conditions and status reports.
