Each of the 11 camp loops has a bathhouse in its center. 8 of them offer free hot showers. The only problem is the vent in the bottom of each door that lets the often strong winds blow in.

There is a small playground near the center of the campground.

About 2 miles from the campground is the old Fort Stevens Military Reservation. Fort Stevens was constructed during the Civil War and remained active until shortly after World War II.
