Blackhorse Campground sits along the Imnaha River in the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest off of Hells Canyon Scenic Byway.

Blackhorse has 16 sites along a curved gravel road surrounded by ponderosa pine forest. The river is audible through the campground, along with the wind blowing through the tree canopy. All sites are basic, and include only a table and fire pit.

The campground signs point visitors to Ollokot Campground to fill up water, as there is no potable water in Blackhorse. The camp host also is posted in Ollokot, which is a short distance up the road. 

Campers can self-pay at the entrance kiosk. Reservations are not permitted - the campground is strictly first come, first serve. There is a 14 day limit on stays. Two vault toilets serve the campground.

Blackhorse Campground's season corresponds to Hells Canyon Scenic Byway's seasonal closure due to snow which tends to occur between late-October and mid-May or so each year.
