This area is Closed

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.  

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.
