The drive-in campground has 29 sites with tables and stoves, bulletin board and pit toilets and water from the creek. Reyes Creek is stocked with trout in the spring when the water flow is strong. Next to the camp is a private facility that includes a store and gas station.

Just back of the upper end of the campground is the north trail head for Gene Marshall Piedra Blanca National Recreation Trail.
