Antelope Coulee is the name for the most westerly arm of Reid Lake and it has been used for recreation for many years. The first established summer resort on the banks of the newly formed lake was Cozy Cove. This was operated by the Purintons. At its busiest there were boats to rent, ball games, concession stand open on Sundays and at least one horseshoe tournament.
Rock Ridge Resort, a seasonal campground has been established on the north side of the west end of Reid Lake. This campground offers seasonal sites for campers to park their trailers and develop a home away from home for the summer. Each site has access to a dock to allow residents to enjoy fishing or other recreational activities on Reid Lake.
