Horton Park is located on the Bear Lake shore at the intersection of Glenwood and Lake Street and is about 300 feet long by 100 feet wide. It is named for the Horton family, who were longtime residents of the Township. It has facilities for picnicking, a swimming beach, playground equipment and restroom facilities. Small watercraft can be launched at the road ending when water levels permit. In winter, the area allows access to Bear Lake for ice fishing. Please note, swimming is at your own risk as there is no lifeguard.

During the spring, summer and fall several youth organizations (Laketon Youth Activities Council, Reeths Puffer Youth Football, Reeths Puffer Baseball and Reeths Puffer Youth Softball) have organized sports for boys and girls - soccer, baseball, softball, football and cheerleading. Two picnic shelters are available for individuals and groups - there is a rental policy in place for use of these shelters that began in 2011.
