In the event of a bicycle breakdown, repair tools and a tire pump are available in the administrative building on the swimming pool. In addition, you can rent deckchairs on site and buy wood for a fire and light it in a designated place. In the vicinity of the beach, there are two beach soccer fields and an outdoor gym.

The lake boasts the cleanest water in the region, which favors the multiplication of fish. No wonder that Iłżanka also attracts anglers.
