The camp is very good place for spring rambles and for a jumping-off point for hikes on the Bruce Trail. Camp Manitou is a day's walk away. Another day's hike north is Rattlesnack Point Conservation area, which has caves and group camping. For a shorter hike, one can hike to Mount Nemo Conservation Area and explore the caves.
Camp Nemo is home to the Hencher Interpretive Centre for Outdoor Program (HICOP). The HICOP is a combination of nature, visitor and program centre in Gordon Williams Lodge just a short walk from the parking lot. The Centre is staffed, on Saturdays, with trained youth and adult interpreters. It is filled with displays and activities centered on nature and environmental themes and it is a good source for maps and other camp information. It will also have activities such as guided interpretive hikes, bird box monitoring, environment monitoring, challenges, crafts, and games. There will be something happening in the centre every weekend and activities such as full moon night hikes during the week. They can also, with advanced notice, do evening meetings during the week.
