This campground is designated ONLY for people with horses

Little Elden Springs Horse Camp is a campground that was created for those who love horses and enjoy riding in a beautiful landscape. This camp has been designed for the particular needs of equestrian campers in mind. All 15 campsites allow easy access for vehicles pulling horse trailers and are equipped with horse-friendly accommodations. It is located near the base of Mount Elden in a lush ponderosa pine and Gamble oak forest. You can access the Kachina Peaks Wilderness at the Weatherford Trail near Schultz Tank just up the road.

The Mount Elden/Dry Lake Hills Trail System is also accessible right from camp and is comprised of over 30 miles of trails. The Horse Camp access trail connects to the Little Elden Trail, which provides a variety of loops and trail pursuits. Deer Hill Trail, which is at the rear of the campground, heads due north for 4.5 miles. This trail offers amazing views of the San Francisco Peaks, especially during the changing of the leaves in the fall when the aspens turn from green to gold.
