The Cook Lake Recreation Area has 32 camp sites and 33 picnic sites.  The lake is stocked with trout, catfish, and sunfish, and there is a wheelchair accessible pier.  There is carry-down access to the lake for small watercraft. Approximately four miles of hiking and bicycling trails are available at the recreation area.

The State of Wyoming allows open fires only if they are contained and not left unattended. Be sure that your fire is completely extinguished before leaving. Check with the local Forest Service Office for fire restrictions.

A hike to Warren Peak Lookout Tower makes a scenic day trip for visitors to the Cook Lake Recreation Area.
