Roy Lake is known for its excellent fishing, but you don't have to be an angler to enjoy all this park has to offer. Visitors will find sandy beaches, campgrounds, picnic areas, boat ramps and an island trail to keep them busy.

The earliest known inhabitants of Roy Lake were members of the Woodland Culture, who built large burial mounds. Artifacts dating between 900 and 1300 A.D. have been found near the park. The Roy (or Roi) family is credited with building the area's first white settlement. Local American Indians called the crops planted along the lakeshore the "Roy Planting" and the name persisted.

Roy Lake Resort is privately operated under agreement with the Division of Parks and Recreation. Roy Lake Resort provides concessionaire services to the park through modern cabins and lodge-style accommodations, bait, convenience store and boat rentals.
