Horseback riding, picnicking, cross-country hiking, and fishing in Fish Lake are the most popular activities. This campground is close to the Kiger Gorge Overlook, where you can often see one of the most genetically pure strains of wild mustangs in the world as well as the resident herd of bighorn sheep.

The road in is great for mountain biking. Fees are charged from April-October. All fees collected are returned to the site for improvements, facility maintenance, and visitor services as part of the Pilot Fee Demonstration Program.
