Quit horsing around with your vacation plans! The Ribbonwood Equestrian Campground in the San Bernardino Forest is the best (and cheapest) place around to lodge campers with hooves, paws, and (human) toes. Although it is on the smaller side (with only eight non-electric sites), Ribbionwood accommodates both tent and RV campers and has all the amenities you would expect from a larger campground like flushing toilets, hot showers, grills, drinking water, picnic tables, and fire pits. Due to the arid climate, there are occasional restrictions on campfires -- make sure you check with the park rangers before you break out the marshmallows.
For just $15 per night, your two- and four-legged companions can set up camp and can enjoy the tranquil beauty of the desert night sky and the company of each other without the distraction of buzzing of devices and honking car horns. All it takes is one visit to Ribbonwood Equestrian Campground for it to be your "mane" camping spot from then on! Be sure to wrangle up your spot soon -- reservations go fast!
Each site has access to two corrals and hitching racks to accommodate your noble steeds -- but what fun is riding off into the sunset without your trusty Cowdog? Thankfully, you don't have to worry about leaving your beloved pooch behind since the campground is super fur-iendly! Just make sure you pick up any "cowpies" Fido drops and keep them on-leash when exploring the more developed areas of the park.
Marvelous views and diverse plant and wildlife await visitors here since the facility lies at the convergence of several distinct habitats -- Palm Desert, Salton Sea, and the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountain ranges. The varied landscape lends to a magnificent array of activities for campers to enjoy, like fishing, mountain biking, hiking, and hunting. There is a trailhead for the beautiful 5.2-mile Sawmill Trail within the campground, but wear your hiking boots because it's a steep climb!
