Ohmer Creek Campground is 22 miles from Petersburg on the Mitkof Highway (turn right out of the ferry terminal parking lot). The road is paved for 17 miles then gravel, in good condition, for the remaining 5 miles to the campground.

The campground has 10 sites suitable for tents or trailers up to 35 feet long. Each site has a parking pad, picnic table, and grill. Two sites are barrier-free. Drinking water and wheelchair-accessible vault-type toilets are centrally located. In the summer, a volunteer campground host is at your service. No RV hook-ups or dump facilities are provided.

Next to the campground is the Ohmer Creek Trail, a barrier-free ¼-mile trail that rambles through a stand of mature temperate rainforest. Beyond the barrier-free portion of the trail, a single plank trail continues another 1 mile to the Snake Ridge Road, where you can complete a 1½ mile loop along the road back to the trailhead. Ohmer Creek offers fair to good trout and salmon fishing in late summer and fall. King salmon return to the creek in the fall.

The Ohmer Creek Campground is a beautiful place to spend a night or a whole week. There is a small camping fee; maximum stay is 14 days.
