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