Dry Creek Horse Camp

Area Status: Open

Nestled among a forest of ponderosa pines and just across a dirt road from Dry Creek, this hidden forest get-away is perfect for horse enthusiasts of any kind.

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 consider camping elsewhere if you do not have a horse.

The Giddy-Up Go Trailhead is also located just across the road, so access to horse friendly trails does not get much better!

Check out the Giddy-Up Go Trail map for orientation of the horse camp with nearby roads and trails.
