Each camping area has electrical (30 and 15 amp) pedestals and running water. The camp sites are all group sites and sharing the water and electrical hookups is expected. There are remote area sites for tent campers with no electric and water for those that like to rough-it.

There is a trailer dumping station located next to the bathhouse.

Several church picnics and the annual pig roast are held at various times of the year and scheduling is important to ensure availability.
