Day use parking is not available at Quinn Meadow Horse Camp.

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.
