Upper Gar Lake is a year-round fishing hotspot and is primarily known for its walleye population. Other fish that can be caught in the lake include largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie, brown bullhead, and yellow perch.

Around the shores, people enjoy picnicking, hammocking, and hiking. Forest covers most of the eastern shore, allowing for hiking, birdwatching, and other natural excursions.
