A historic limestone schoolhouse hosts summer church services every Sunday. A seven-station, 14-target archery range is located north of the Cottonwood shower building. Pioneer Day-use area activities include a playground, sand volleyball, softball, disc golf course, and horseshoes.

Lovewell is for people who love water. The south shore’s high bluffs block the summer winds and help calm the waters. You’ll find a full-service marina with double-lane boat ramp and daily or season boat slip rental. Lovewell Marina serves a full breakfast, lunch and dinner menu from April to September, and boasts the best barbecue around!! Also available is a double lane boat ramp at Cedar Point, with floating breakwater structures to calm the water for loading and unloading ease. This boat ramp can also be used at any water level. Lighted fish cleaning stations (with outlets for your electric fillet knives), lie west of the limestone school house and marina.
