Allen Creek Horse Camp

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

Located south of Bridge Creek Wilderness, Allen Creek Horse Camp sits among large ponderosa pine trees and along the creek that feeds Allen Creek Reservoir.

There are five campsites which are currently maintained and several corrals on site. There are no manure pits at this campground so the Forest Service requests that you pack out waste from your horses.

There is no water system at the camp, but a stream borders the east side of the camp from which you can water your animals. Allen Creek Reservoir is very close to the campground, though it cannot be accessed directly from the site; instead it can be accessed through BLM land just a few miles away.
