Approximately 100,000 people enjoy the recreation opportunities of the Shawnee Twins Lakes each year. Lake Number 1 has a surface area of about 1,300 acres and Lake Number 2 has a surface area of about 1,100 acres. Boat ramps and docks on each lake provide access for fishing and recreation. Watercraft have access to both lakes via a channel constructed in 1962.
In 1994 the Shawnee residents approved a referendum permitting full recreation on Lake Number 1. Additional recreation opportunities include swimming, skiing, and personal watercraft. A fully enclosed fishing dock provides year-round all weather-fishing opportunities.
Isaac Walton Park established after the opening of Lake Number 1 in 1935 has been improved dramatically. Improvements include camping at 15 individual sites, swimming, 8 family picnic areas with cooking grills, handicap accessible restrooms, park lighting, parking lots, and paving.
City crews developed Glenn Collins Memorial Park between the two dams. Improvements include 30' x 30' picnic shelter, large swimming area, numerous individual picnic areas with cooking grills, handicap accessible restrooms, park lighting, volleyball and basketball recreation areas, parking lots, and paving.
Fishing is allowed on both lakes along with hunting for duck, rabbit, quail, squirrel, and dove in designated areas.
