Deep Creek Beach and Campground is located at mile 137.3 of the Sterling Hwy. It has a day use facility and camp sites.

The halibut in Cook Inlet and king salmon runs at Deep Creek are legendary, making the campsites in the park very much in demand. Bald eagles are visible year-round. In the month of May, sandhill cranes and other shore birds inhabit the saltwater marsh. Whales, seals and otters can be seen offshore.

A small watercraft and boat launch is located in Deep Creek, near Cook Inlet. Marine Services LLC provides tractor assisted boat launching along the shore of Cook Inlet. Fishing charters and Recreational boaters rely on this boat launch service.

The beaches along Cook Inlet are popular areas to ride ATV's.
