The campground has 55 first-come, first-serve campsites, drinking water, and vault toilets. There is no electrical service or flush toilets making this a perfect spot for primitive campers. The area has a sewer dump station and concrete boat ramp with direct access to the main channel.
Camping at Pleasant Creek is located in two locations – the main campground and the island. The area is monitored by a volunteer campground host who assists campers with the self-registration process and is available to answer visitor questions.
