Rolling hills studded with juniper trees encircle the lake, which is stocked with rainbow trout, cutthroat trout, and catfish. Trout weighing up to nine pounds have been caught in the lake. The park is also popular for ice fishing in the winter months. Boating and year-round fishing round out the top activities.

The park offers a wide variety of camping possibilities, most with views of the lake. Developed sites, both with and without electric hookups, are set among pinyon and juniper trees.  A new visitor center houses exhibits on the park's flora and fauna and offers information about nearby activities, such as hiking and cross-country skiing in Cibola National Forest.

The park is host to many of nature's feathered friends. Bird watching, whether by the expert or novice, is a must at the lake, with at least 68 different species of birds calling the park home or a savory resting spot.

Bluewater Lake is situated on the north flank of the Zuni Mountains in Las Tusas Basin. The reservoir is located in a valley carved in shale and limestone the latter of which contains snail and brachiopod fossils.
