Box Canyon Horse Camp


Box Canyon Horse Camp was developed to provide convenient access for equestrians to both wilderness and undeveloped roadless areas west of the Cascade crest. Campers without stock are also welcomed. Groves of conifers and scattered meadows make an appealing setting for both hikers and packsaddle enthusiasts. During the summer season, water is piped into trough and is available for stock only (not for drinking).
