Activities that can be performed in the lake is Boating, Kayaking and Zorbing. Missing paddle boating in Bhimtal lake. Fish aquarium in the small island. Elderly/ religious person can visit nearby temple. Activities start at around 11.00 and run until 6.00 PM in summers.

The lake is not as crowded as Nainital, but equally beautiful. The lake boat ride is great. There is a aquarium in the middle of the lake. Lots of water activities for kids like scooter ride, Zorbing (Water Balloon) etc.
