White Cedar Horse Camp

Area Status: Open
A white and brown sign in a forest clearing reads: White Cedar Horse Camp Jefferson National Forest

Built in 2006, this campground is located on top of Flat Top Mountain. It is perfect for camping with horses; there is plenty of shade and every site has a metal pipe corral. White Cedar’s main attraction is its proximity to a 20 mile system of intersecting trails of varied lengths and levels. You can ride directly from your campsite to the Flat Top Trailhead.
