A pleasant variety of conifers, including Douglas fir, Engelmann spruce, and Lodgepole pine, give the campground shade and character. A lack of middle and understory limits privacy to fair.

The campground, on Walupt Lake and surrounded by the Goat Rocks Wilderness, offers a pleasant forest experience without the need to hike any distance. Pretty campground with lots of conifers including Silver fir, cedar and hemlock, it provides ample shade and good privacy. The campground has two unnamed loops. One loop is tucked well back into the forest while the other loop stretches along the lakeshore. The sites on the shoreline are all walk-in tent only and each has its own little beach area.
