This is a horse camp along the Cape Mountain Trails.
This is a horse camp not a car camp. If you don’t have horses you should not be taking up a spot with horse corrals! OET horse group paid for all the gravel on road, put up all corrals, and fixed the water trough. It is not fair that people are taking up spots from horse people. We can not just take our horses into a car camp. The homeless are camping all over the roads making it hard to pull trailers by. They are littering and pooping all over the trails. The bathrooms are nasty & people drive in & out parking in the middle of lot making it so horse trailers can not get through. Not right! Keep this horses only!
If you don’t show early in the week with your big rig and all your horses you will not get a spot . It’s over run with car camping sucking up all the spots with horse corrals. Really sucks we horse camper can’t camp in car camps .Car Campers should not be allowed in horse camps !
I noticed as they left they left garage and their fires still flaming !!!
What a fantastic place!!!! We stayed overnight on a lark and it was packed. But the sites are spread apart with lots of natural foliage between as a screen. This is first and foremost a horse camp with corrals at each site. But there's lots of room for small RV's or tents. Nice hiking trails and took the dogs out for a couple of hours and was totally alone. But this is definitely a dry camp. There's no water so pack in your water. There is a nice toilet at the front of the campground. The campground is about 4 miles off Hwy 101 between Florence and the Sea Lion Caves.
After accidentally reserving the wrong campground, we were pointed in the direction of Horse Creek. Access to it is up an unmarked dirt road, about 10 minutes from 101. It's truly out in the middle of the woods, with campsites meant for campers with horses but it worked perfectly for our tent camping. Pay on site, no campground host. Vault toilets.
Just south of Yachats, highway 101 makes a sharp turn with a steep drop, down to the beach. It might be the precarious position that keeps this campsite quiet -- it's unmarked and you'll miss it if you don't slow down. The sites are located about 3 miles up a dirt road. There are about ten spots, each with a corral for your horse if you have one. The thick forest of trees make each spot peaceful and private.
