Olive Creek State Recreation area, located 2 miles east and 3/4-mile south of Kramer has 612 acres of land and water available to outdoor recreation enthusiasts. Although small, the 175-acre lake supports a variety of fish from largemouth bass to bluegill to two kinds of catfish, making for a diversity of fishing excitement. Boaters are restricted to 5 mph.

Habitat management on the 437 acres of land provides hunters with the possibility of bagging upland game as well as waterfowl and deer. As on all the Salt Valley lakes, only steel shot may be used for waterfowl hunting. Camping and picnic facilities are also available.
