The campground offers some very secluded sites surrounded by local coastal shrubbery, with some other sites that are more open. Three hiking trails can be accessed next to the campground, leading to Threemile Lake and the Tahkenitch Dunes.
Across the road is Tahkenitch Lake. The name Tahkenitch means “lake of many fingers.” Fishing here can be relaxing and rewarding.
The adjacent day use area serves as the trailhead for Tahkenitch Dunes Trail, Threemile Lake Trail, and Threemile Lake South Trail. All three trails are good for sand play and scenery.
