The 2,830-acre lake has an unlimited horsepower designation. Five launch ramps are situated around the lake.
The Marina at Caesar Creek (513-897-1092) features a harbormaster building as well as leased and transient docks from Apr 1 to Oct 15. The building includes a retail area (boating accessories, clothing, fishing equipment, live bait, ice, etc.), concession area offering ice cream, pizza and beverages with indoor seating; public restrooms; and outside deck with seating area and water fountain. Exclusive features for boat dock leaseholders include showers. The marina offers fuel (ethanol-free 90 octane) and pump out stations.
There are two boat camp/boat swim areas. One is located just north of the Wellman boat ramp and the other is located just south of the campground boat ramp.
There are boat ramps at different locations: off of Compton Road at the North End of the Lake, launch at the Campground area at the end of Center Road, North of the public Beach Area, the Furnas Boat Ramp off of St. Rte. 73 across from the main entrance to the park, and Wellman Road which is just south of the Pioneer Village Road (there is no launch off Pioneer Village Road itself). All of these boat ramps have restroom facilities and parking lots located in close proximity to the ramp themselves.
The lake is an unlimited horsepower lake with no wake areas around the Marina/Beach areas and the bridge under State Route 73. Due to this being an unlimited horsepower lake and the dangers possible with that, swimming off of your boat is limited to only the designated Boat Camp Swim Areas. All other areas, swimming off of your boat is not permitted. There is also a designated no boat area on the south side of the lake near the visitor center/dam. When you are on the North End of the lake (near the Compton Road launch) there are pylons designating the original location of the creek which are the deepest parts of the lake in that area. Going beyond the pylons does present a possibility of running into low ground.
The lake is an amazing place to kayak and give a different view of all of the wildlife which can be found at the State Park. There are multiple places around the park which one can launch their kayak. There are boat ramps at different locations: off of Compton Road at the North End of the Lake, launch at the Campground area at the end of Center Road, North of the public Beach Area, the Furnas Boat Ramp off of St. Rte. 73 across from the main entrance to the park, and Wellman Road which is just south of the Pioneer Village Road (there is no launch off Pioneer Village Road itself).
There are two locations around the lake which people can camp on their boats. These are the only two locations which you are permitted to camp on your boat. These are also the only locations which you are permitted to swim near your boat as they are the only locations which are safe for doing this. On the map, you can see the designation for them in the Legend. One is located just south of the Campground and the other is located near the 50 Springs area in the cove.
