Agnew Horse Camp, situated in Reds Meadow Valley, California, is part equestrian camp, part nature-lover experience. Even if you are not a horseback rider, you will still love this camp for its many outdoor activities and majestic views.
The campground is located in a pine forest with a local lake and many creeks nearby. There is so much to do and see that you and Fido will want to stay a while to pack it all in. Just the wildlife itself -- the black bear, mountain lions, deer, birds, and more, are worth taking days to explore!
Many hikers come here to visit the multiple trails: High Trail, Shadow Creek Trail, and River Trail are quite popular because of their beautiful views. Fishing is also quite popular, with trout being the main catch of the day.
In the camp you will find campfire rings (although you will need to check the fire rules before starting one as there are many no-burn times due to the dryness of the state), drinking water, picnic tables, updated restrooms, and storage lockers for food to keep away the animals.
When you are ready to explore the surrounding towns, both the Devils Postpile National Monument and the Ansel Adams Wilderness are nearby and pet-friendly. You don't have to go far for supplies, though -- just about anything you may need can be found at Reds Meadow Pack Station and Resort's general store and cafe.
Please note that, in addition to your camping fees, there is a $7 fee for extra vehicles in a campsite and there is also a Forest Service fee when you enter the park.
The camp is simple to find with good directions. To get there, take U.S. Highway 395 to Highway 203 west and drive through Mammoth Lakes. You will pass the Mammoth Mountain Ski Area, then continue about two and a half miles on Red's Meadow Road to the Agnew Meadows turnoff.
