There are boat slips, a boat dock, restrooms, a swimming area, a fish cleaning station (for the walleye, kokanee and trout you catch), a group picnic shelter, drinking water, an on-site manager and 42 camping units with fire rings, picnic tables and garbage collection. Everything is universally accessible.
