The high desert surroundings of this park offer a unique experience to its guests. The fragrant smell of juniper lingers in the air and thrills the senses. The cool grass of the park is a vibrant contrast to the sagebrush and cheatgrass of the bordering lands. The Burnt River comes to rest behind the Unity Dam before continuing its path down the valley. Relax on the shores or enjoy water sports. There's a boat ramp to accommodate the water skier as well as the angler. A peacefulness will engulf you at Unity Lake State Recreation Area whatever you choose to do.
Two sites are accessible to campers with disabilities.
Thirty acres of the park are managed under a 1959 lease agreement with the U. S. Bureau of Reclamation. The additional nine acres were purchased from a private owner. Unity Lake was formed after the damming of Burnt River by the Bureau of Reclamation to provide agricultural irrigation water. The park was created to provide public access to the lake.
