It offers four tent sites and 1 RV site with a 30 foot limit. There are both flush and vault toilets, a group use area, grills/firerings, picnic tables, trash cans, and drinking water. No open fires are allowed and there is a 7 day camping limit during a 30 day period. A joint state/tribal fishing license is required at this site and it is DAY USE ONLY from 10/1 through 4/30.
