Each site is equipped with a picnic table and campfire ring with grill. There is a maximum of eight people per site. Vault toilets, drinking water, and trash collection are provided throughout the campground. Firewood is for sale in campground. The road through the campground is gravel/dirt.

A playground suitable for small children is located within the campground.

Natural Features

The campground is situated among ponderosa pines, on a gentle slope, at an approximate elevation of 8,600 feet.
Due to the mountain pine beetle infestation and consequent hazardous tree removal, the campground offers little to no shade.
