Stay at Carter Meadows Horse Group Campground when you want to visit the Klamath National Forest with your fellow equestrians. This site has space for up to 25 people and their horses. You can use a tent or trailer to camp here. There are three corral areas with several pens that can hold between one and four horses. The facility has picnic tables, a group barbecue, fire pits, and potable water, making it easy to set up your quarters and explore this pawtastic wilderness. Although this location has light use, you must make reservations at least two days in advance.
You'll be sleeping in a partially shaded area at about 5,800 feet. This campground is near the Trinity Alps Wilderness and offers ample opportunity for hiking and trail rides. If you plan on exploring the wilderness area, you'll need to obtain a permit from the Salmon River/Scott River District Ranger's office. Another option is to ride along the Pacific Coast Trail. You can pick this pathway up near the Carter Meadows Summit. Watch for osprey, bald eagles, river otters, and other wildlife during your outings. Try to catch Coho salmon, steelhead, and other cold-water species in the area streams and lakes.
In addition to your horse, Fido is welcome here. Pets must stay on-leash and under supervision at all times. Carry poop bags so that you can immediately remove and dispose of any droppings.
This campground is a puptacular spot to stay when you and your friends want to explore the wilderness on horseback. You'll have easy access to several trails that are nearby. Make sure you bring certified weed-free hay when you come here. There are water spigots, but you'll need to supply hoses and buckets for your stock. Bears live in this area -- store your food and any other scented items in sealed containers per forest regulations to avoid attracting unwanted visitors.
