The lake is adjacent to Hells Gate National Park, which is named so due to the massive red tinged cliffs surrounding a geothermal interior with bubbling hot springs. The lake draws a great range of game from giraffe, hartebeest, zebra, gazelle, impala, hippo and Colobus monkeys. Boat trips on the lake are available, walking tours, biking, hiking and rock climbing can also be done in the park.
