Quinn Meadows Campsite

Quinn Meadow is one of the most popular horse campgrounds on the Deschutes Forest. The sites are large and there is a vast area to ride on the southwest side of Mt. Bachelor and surrounding areas.  This site is located between Devils Lake and Elk Lake and provides access to the Three Sisters Wilderness via the Quinn Creek Trail or Katsuk Pond Trail (to Devils Lake Trailhead). 

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.

Horse Camping

Quinn Meadow is one of the most popular horse campgrounds of the eight horse campgrounds that we manage in the Deschutes Forest. The sites are large and there is a vast area to ride on the southwest side of Mt. Bachelor and surrounding areas. With 26 sites it is the largest horse campground we manage and has both double and quadruple corrals. There is a site near the entry for you to dispose of your manure so that it does not have to be hauled away by you. There is a gathering Adirondack near the host site. There is a water pump with drinking water and the toilet buildings are better than most in horse campgrounds. Although this site requires reservations, there are often some sites left over for those who just show up and you will be welcome if there is a site left. Payments should be made at the Iron Ranger for first come sites or extra vehicles. If we do not have sites here we will most likely have other sites nearby that we will be able to recommend such as at the nearby Cultus Corral Campground where reservations are not needed.  Horse stalls are available at all sites.
