Visitors to Otis Reservoir enjoy boating, fishing, camping, water-sports, snowmobiling, and many other recreational activities. The lake level is generally at full pool by late summer and water is released in the fall so that ice will not damage lake structures, such as docks and moorings. This cycle of fill and release enhances the water quality of Otis Reservoir.

Developed originally to meet water-power needs for mills along the Farmington River, the Otis Reservoir is operated for recreational purposes by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, (the DCR).

Today, the shorelines of Otis Reservoir are heavily developed with residential homes. A large, paved boat ramp located on the western shore of the lake near Clark Island provides public access to the lake and parking for approximately 12 vehicles. The boat launch lies next to the Tolland State Forest Campground, both of which are managed by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Management.
