Excellent waterskiing is available on the arm.  The first section of the campground is well developed with paved, level parking aprons and amenities. The second section is mostly walk-in, with good privacy between campsites, and more primitive with a wilderness feel. This section also features campsites next to the water's edge. Most sites in both sections have views of Trinity Lake.

There are six walk-in campsites (five single, one double). There are two accessible campsites, two single campsites, and three double campsites. Directly adjacent is the Minersville Boat Ramp. Bear-proof containers are available. Informal mooring of boats is possible off some campsites.
