Agate Beach is at the edge of a spruce grove and is the most attractive of the campgrounds. Most of the sites are out in the open and surrounded by dense shrubs. The best sites are the ones are at the edge of the spruce forest.
A nice benefit of the campground is the trail that leads down to broad, isolated Agate Beach.
Agate Beach has five cabins that cost $80/night in winter and $100/night in summer. Just like the identical cabins at Prairie Creek and Jedediah Smith, each has four wooden sleeping platforms and not much else; there’s no kitchen or bathroom and you can’t use camp stoves inside. You even have to bring your own beddings. But the big benefits are the indoor heating, lighting, and electrical outlets.
