The Granite Mountain Wilderness Area lies to the northwest. There are numerous loop and connector trails in the recreation area that connect to trails outside the area. Trails are well marked and most of them allow multiple modes of travel. The campground was built to be integrated with the natural setting of various vegetative species and granite rock ridges.

Remember to clean up after Fido to help keep the place clean.
The camp host is generally appreciated for keeping the area and bathrooms clean. Visitors appreciate not seeing trash on their dog walks. Just be careful to keep your dog from stepping into the sap that sometimes can drip from a pine tree. Overall, it's a great place to camp with Fido.
