There are a total of 56 campsites on two paved loops. Loops A and B have 46 sites that will accommodate tents, trailers and RVs up to 34 feet. Several sites in Loop B have a water view and are tucked back into the woods with excellent privacy. Almost all of the sites are fairly private in wooded areas of hemlock and fir, alders and maples, blue and red huckleberry bushes, ferns and salal. The other 10 sites are on a paved spur designated for walk-in tent campers. Several of these have water views and one of them is a group site for up to 12 persons. The walk-in tent sites are wheelchair friendly. There are also 2 overflow sites. A boat ramp with a large parking area provides boat access for campers and day use visitors. Coho has piped water, flush toilets and gray water disposal facilities. The day use area is immediately next to Coho Campground with a swimming beach and picnic areas.
The Wynoochee Lakeshore Trail No. 878 follows the shore of the lake providing 16 miles for hiking and mountain biking pleasure. There is also a short Working Forest Nature Trail - 0.25 miles - that is lovely. Other short trips are visits to nearby Wynoochee Falls and Dam.
