Horse Camping Hoosier National Forest

Open horse camping is available daily between March 30 – Nov 4.  Some  Weekends & Holidays may require a minimum night’s stay .  Optional meal packages may be available on those weekends.  Check in 3pm/check out time 2pm; if you plan to arrive before noon, please pay for the night before so we can have your site and stalls ready for you.

All horse campsites are equipped with electrical 30 amp service and your own water spicket.
All campsites are 100 feet long X 25 feet wide.  All horses MUST be stalled…horse stalls are at the back of your campsite so you are never more then 50 feet away from your horse’s stall.  (We are not set up for high lining or tying out to horse trailers.) **Only 4 people per site, please.

Site Sharing: only one living quarters type trailer per site and only 4 people per site.   Stock trailers and bumper pull trailers that are less than 14 feet long and do not require electrical plug ins may share a site…..also providing there is room.  **Only 4 people / 4 stalls per site.

Cancellation Policy

Event Weekends, Fall Season & Other Busy Weekends:
  • Deposits are non-refundable and may be transferred to another weekend.  Transfer requests must be received 10 days prior to your arrival.  If you cancel less than 10 days out, it will be based on whether or not we can re-rent your site or cabin.  Transfer requests cannot be left on answering machine; you must make contact with a live person via telephone conversation.  If the phones are busy and you are at work, please send us an email request and we will be happy to call you at a time that is convenient for you.
  • NO CALL/NO SHOW – you will pay for your camp site at time of invoice.  Please give us the courtesy of a phone call to cancel your reservation.  In the event we have folks on the waiting list or during the slow time, we will not get your site or cabin ready.

Off Season & Slow Weekends:

  • Deposits are still non-refundable. However, a 48 hour notice is sufficient on a slow weekend to let us know that you will not be arriving at our campground.  If we do not have to make things ready for your arrival, then we will be happy to roll your deposit money to another time.  Please just give us the courtesy of a phone call and speak to a live person.
