The main lake offers a marina with docks, a concrete launching area, and five beaches with picnic areas. The main lake is great for fishing, water skiing, boating and swimming. Lake Monticello also has a small pond, Tufton Lake, that is only used for fishing.

The LMOA provides general maintenance of the community as well as a variety of other community services. The 3,500-acre community offers amenities such as six hard-surfaced tennis courts, basketball courts, a swimming pool, playgrounds with picnic facilities, a softball field, and a clubhouse. The Clubhouse can be used for social events and meetings.
