There is a boat ramp and shuttles for downstream paddles when water levels are favorable.

Many of the RV campsites feature full hookups with water, sewer and 30 and 50 amp electric. The more primitive tent sites are situated along Fisheating Creek and near a small lake. Group campsites are also available.
