Lake Barrington is a designated "big fish" water, stocked by the Inland Fisheries Service with king size fish for anglers. Lake Barrington is also ideal for water-based activities such as swimming, rowing, water skiing, power boating and canoeing. It features camping sites, picnic areas with sheltered tables, BBQs and toilets. A kiosk operates on weekends in summer and during major sporting events.

No water activity is permitted within the boundaries of the international rowing course, towards the southern end of the lake.

This is a great place to get away from it and immerse yourself in Tassie's wilderness, just 15 minutes from Sheffield.
