The Jamestown Reservoir encompasses 2,095 surface acres and has 45 miles of shoreline. It provides sweeping views of undeveloped prairie and wooded draws. The prairie areas feature grasses that cover the North American Plains and can be viewed from various points within the park. The wooded draws provide habitat for birds and other species of wildlife.

Unique landscape features at the Reservoir include a peninsula near the Jim River Bay area and an island near Lakeside Campground. The Island is available for day use activities such as picnicking, shore fishing and volleyball.

Facilities at Jamestown Reservoir include 7 boat ramps at various locations, numerous picnic areas complete with tables and shelters, two swimming beaches and two campgrounds with 335 campsites, 110 campsites with RV hookups, and two dump stations. The east side of the park has over two miles of asphalt trails for walking and biking. Benches located along the trail provide places for visitors to rest and enjoy the views.

Hiking and wildlife enthusiasts will enjoy the Outdoor Wildlife Learning Site (OWLS). This is an outdoor conservation classroom where visitors can learn about the importance of habitat and conservation of wildlife resources. The Little Britches Fishing Pond was developed for young anglers and is stocked with fish by the North Dakota Game and Fish Department.
