Tustumena Lake is located within the almost two million acre Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge offers activities for every visitor including camping, hiking, nature watching, fishing, and much more.

While boating is a popular past time, the lake has a history of being dangerous for small boats. This is due to the high winds that blow off of the Tustumena Glacier.

There are seven hiking trails of varying difficulties located within the recreation area. Seven camping sites are also located inside the area, two of which are on the shores of Skilak Lake. Located on the upper and lower parts of the lake are two boat launches open to the public. There are also three public cabins within the recreation area.

The lake is also known for the Tustumena 200 Sled Dog Race. The race is a 200 mile trek that takes place each year on the last weekend in January.
