Lebar Horse Camp

Area Status: Closed

Large evergreen conifers and hardwoods provide plenty of shade. 13 campsites are available that accomodate a horse trailer and camper with room to hitch horses to a highline near each camp unit.

Vault toilet and picnic shelter. No potable water is available at this time.

Please note: This site is designed for stock use.  If your party does not need access to a horse campsite, please consider selecting another campground or consider dispersed camping. 

Please be aware that recreating near and in horse campgrounds can provide a different experience than when camping in a non-stock campground. Horse camps are designed to include more for parking and hitching/corralling stock reducing areas for other activities. The presence of stock in the camp can also create different noises and smells than at a non-stock campground. 

Please be courteous to all users.
