Horse Trailer Camping
If you would like to camp with your horse, we have a fenced field for rough camping. All horses are required to bear proof of a negative Coggins test within the last 12 months. There are no designated campsites or hookups. There are portable toilets and two water hydrants for all to use. This area is for people with self-contained horse trailers. You may bring small electric corrals or picket your horse between trailers. Pickets should not be placed so that horses can access tree bark.
The camping field is open 24 hours, 7 days a week. (See special events for exceptions.)
Reservations are not necessary for field camping. It is a first come first serve for camping spots. Pick up field registration forms and pay as you enter the field (honor system). Forms are located in the mailbox on the information board as you enter the field. Follow the instructions and drop the signed releases and fee in the second mailbox. Parking passes must be displayed at all times during your visit (even if you rent a stall).
