Camp Dick is situated in a glacial valley adjacent to Middle Saint Vrain Creek, with a mixture of forest and open meadow. The Middle Saint Vrain Creek is a good fly-fishing stream where anglers cast for rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout. Many trails in the vicinity are open to hiking and biking, including Sourdough and Buchanan Pass trails. The Indian Peaks Wilderness boundary is four miles from the west end of the campground. Mountain biking is allowed on the first five miles of Buchanan Pass Trail. Bikers can ride a loop from Peaceful Valley or Camp Dick, via Buchanan Pass Trail and Middle Saint Vrain Road, or Coney Cutoff and Coney Creek Roads and Sourdough Trail. The Middle Saint Vrain and Bunce School roads are popular among off-road vehicle enthusiasts. Guided horseback riding is available at Peaceful Valley Lodge, which is just over a mile away.

There are 41 sites that will accommodate tents, campers, trailers, and RVs. Tents must be confined to the provided 14' X 16' tent pad. A maximum of eight people are allowed per site except for double campsites 11, 12, 14, 21, 24, 28, 38, 39 and 40 which allow a maximum of 15 people. Picnic tables, fire grates, water, vault toilets, and trash services are provided. 14-day stay limit. There is no electricity, hook-ups, dump stations, or showers. All campsites with a tent pad have a bear locker.
