Three Creek Meadow Campground & Horsecamp

  

This camping area consists of the Three Creek Meadow Campground and Three Creek Meadow Horsecamp. These campgrounds offer opportunities for horseback riding, hiking, and fishing.  During the winter there are opportunities for cross country skiing and snowmobiling.

 

Horse campgrounds have been designed to accommodate people who need to corral their horses.   We have a limited number of these kinds of campgrounds and ask, out of courtesy and safety for you and the horses, to please consider camping elsewhere if you do not have a horse.   We have many campgrounds nearby.

Campground Camping

The sites in the Horse Camp are relatively tight for a horse camp, but the area is popular due to the beautiful rides available. Each site has four corrals and there is water available for the horses only. August is very popular, but September is better if the snow hasn't started to fall yet. The Three Creek area is known for its beautiful view of the Sisters to Bend area below it and of the Three Sisters Wilderness area above it. Some people like to come to this area using it as a staging area to go into the Wilderness area or to hike between Broken Top and the Sisters heading over to either the Waldo area or to the Cascades Lake Highway. Although many of our horse campgrounds do have reservations, this one does not.  11 campsites are designated "No Horses" and are located on the edge of a large meadow. 9 sites are designated "Horses Only." This is a very sensitive area and users of the camp are urged to help protect this special area by not using vehicles in or around the campground. This is one of the best campgrounds we manage for small get togethers for RV owners. The sites are large and wide open.  The sites will accommodate any size vehicle and this is the place to be for seclusion. This area is very snow pack dependent for its opening dates.
