Howard Creek Horse Camp, located within Silver Falls State Park, is an excellent camping option for those with horses (it is not open to those without). In addition to the lovely campsites nestled in the thick forest, there are an abundance of trails nearby for hiking, biking and of course equestrian use. Both the Buck Mountain and Howard Creek trails begin from the campground.

There are 6 campsites at Howard Creek Horse Camp, including one group site. All campsites are quite nice and feature plenty of shade and a fair amount of privacy. Sites include picnic tables and fire rings, corrals and hitching rails, manure bins, spigots with potable water and porta potties. Up to 4 horses/pack animals and 8 people are allowed per site. The group site however can accommodate up to 12 horses and 24 people.

Howard Creek Horse Camp is open seasonally, May through September. Reservations are available and can be made in advance here.
