People enjoy the lake throughout the year. Swimming, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, waterskiing, fishing are some of the summer activities while in the winter when the lake freezes people will out ice fishing, playing hockey, skating, and skiing. At the north end is a public beach, managed by the Lake Iroquois Recreation District (LIRD), a district formed by the four towns with representatives from each town sitting on its board. The LIRD also owns a 380-acre forested parcel at the north end where several walking trails lure visitors into the beauties of the surrounding woods. The Vermont State Department of Fish and Wildlife operates a public boat and fishing access on the northwestern shore. The LIA Greeter Program and Boat Wash Station operates at the fishing access Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
