Whispering Pine Horse Camp

Area Status: Closed

This rustic nine site horse camp offers riding opportunities and trail access to the Three Sisters Wilderness Area.  

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.
