    Nearby hiking trails include Willow Creek, Goat Mountain, Spring Cove and Way-of-the-Mono Interpretive Trail. A variety of educational programs are offered on weekends during the summer.

    Each campsite has a water faucet, picnic tables and a large pedestal grill. The group picnic areas offer picnic tables and pedestal grills. The restrooms have flush toilets.
