Nearby Upper and Lower Lake Mary, Ashurst, Marshall and Kinnikinick lakes, serve as a recreational focus for this campground. All are stocked with fish including trout, bass, and channel catfish. Upper Lake Mary is popular with power boaters (there's no motor limit), and Ashurst attracts a following of windsurfers along with its anglers and boaters. Those whose interest in the out of doors goes beyond watersports might consider these sites for the wildlife watching they offer. The lakes around these forested campgrounds are used as a stopover for migrating waterfowl, a wintering site for rare bald eagles, and a feeding ground for resident ospreys. The area is home to a considerable number of elk and mule deer too.
