Sheep Springs Horse Camp

Area Status: Closed
Sheep Springs Campground

A great way to explore the Metolius River Basin area is by horseback and Sheep Springs Horse Camp is where to stay. This horse camp provides access to the Metolius-Windigo and Bear Valley trails.

Check out a map of this campground here.

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.
