With nine campsites equipped with tables and fire rings, it accommodates both tent campers and small trailers. Bear boxes are available for safe food storage, emphasizing the campground's commitment to preserving the natural environment and wildlife.

Outdoor enthusiasts can take advantage of the numerous hiking and biking trails leading from the ridge to the Grouse Lakes Area at the base. The non-motorized area ensures a peaceful retreat, allowing the sounds of nature to take center stage.

Visitors should come prepared for a rustic stay, as the campground operates on a pack-in/pack-out principle with no trash service, and there is no piped water available. A vault toilet is provided for basic amenities.

Grouse Ridge Campground operates seasonally, typically from Memorial Day to mid-October, weather permitting. The free campground operates on a first-come, first-served basis, making it an accessible option for spontaneous adventurers.
