Hamlin Beach State Park's clear water, sandy beaches and 264 tent and trailer campsites bring thousands of visitors to the park each year. The Yanty Creek Marsh area at the east end of the park has a mile long self-guided nature trail. In addition, there are 10 miles of hiking and biking trails, as well as snowmobile and cross-country skiing trails. Visitors can launch car-top boats, fish for salmon and trout and enjoy the picnic facilities.

Most campsites are quite large and very flat with either a paved or gravel base. A large proportion of sites are quite deep and offer great privacy from neighbouring sites with a sizable buffer between sites.

All sites are serviced with electric (30-50A).

The campsites are oriented in 6 loops, reducing the amount of thru traffic past sites.

Note: Non of this parks campsites are on, or near the water.
