While at Emery Bay, check out the variety of outdoor activities including fishing, boating (with an accessible concrete boat ramp), swimming, wildlife watching, and much more. There are a variety of trails you can explore on bike or by foot while on the lookout for wildlife.
The campground is in what is known as "grizzly bear country" as bears are known frequent the area often. As a result, many of the campsites come with food storage containers, and storing all food, including dog food and canned food, is required. This is to prevent unnecessary contact with the bears. You are asked to take the proper precautions in storing food and garbage in locked containers so the bears remain unprovoked.
