There are many great hikes around Stagecoach. One of my favorites is just exploring the arena because you can watch the boaters and the wildlife while admiring the views!


At the marina, there is a beach where you can go swimming and play in the sand. There you can picnic and also watch the water-skiing!


Stagecoach Park's reservoir is open to both motorized and non-motorized boating from May 1 to October 31 each year. Individuals can canoe or kayak in the wakeless boat area. Or, take a motorboat into the non-wakeless area to enjoy some time jetting along the water's surface.
