Horses and riders at Canebrake horse camp

Canebrake Horse Camp has 28 sites with parking spurs for horse trailers. Four of these sites are double camp sites. Each site has a picnic table, grill, fire ring, lantern post, tie posts, tack tables,  and electrical hookups. Up to two vehicles are allowed at each site.

The camp also provides water spigots for drinking water, hot showers, and flush toilets. Electric hookups available, but no water/sewer hookups at each site. A sewage dump station and a horse washing station are centrally located.

The Equestrian Trail System can be accessed from Canebrake using the Home Trail, which skirts the campground.  There are approximately 40 miles of horse trails, ranging in difficulty from easy to more difficult. 

Opportunities for boating, swimming, fishing, hunting, picnicking, hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, and OHV trail use are available while staying at the campground.
