Camp Iyataka offers both developed and primitive camping areas. Developed sites (sites 1-11) have covered shelters, picnic tables, pit toilets, and fire rings. While most campsites are located on the lower level, next to the lake, there are several excellent campsites on the upper level, located just north of the Lodge. Rural water is located in front of the lodge and on the South end of camp along the road. These are outdoor hydrants that are locked, but the gate key will open them. Firewood is very abundant, with many woodpiles located throughout the camp.
Popular activities at the camp include fishing, hiking, canoeing or boating, and exploring the network of trails criss-crossing the property.
Much of the camp is heavily wooded, with abundant resources for lashing and pioneering projects.
For those interested in nature, the camp abounds with many species of trees, shrubs, wildflowers, and other vegetation . The camp is also home to deer, rabbit, wild turkeys, pheasants, hawks, and more.
For those interested in area-wide activities or games, there are two large beaches on the lower level, and several large open areas on the upper levels.
