Simple free horse camp near wild horses

There are wild horses in this area, but we didn’t get to see any! There is nice hiking in the area in this simple campsite in the middle of nowhere. There are toilets but no water (there’s a creek so boil or treat the water there), close to the road, and a good basecamp for hiking or horseback riding in the area. Big open wooded area to explore and camp in. I wouldn’t drive here in the winter or a wet spring. Lovely wildlife and plants here.
