It is strategically located to provide campers with access to a variety of horseback riding trails, as well as the wide open meadows of the San Gorgonio Wilderness.

It is typically a one-hour loop ride that meanders through the area, but another route off the same trail will lead to a portion of the Pacific Crest Trail, several miles away.

A variety of other trailheads begin near the campground, including Fish Creek Meadow, Mission Creek, Dry Lake and South Fork, among others. Fishing is also available in the numerous nearby mountain streams.

Sites are equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. Accessible flush toilets, showers and drinking water are provided.

More than two dozen single-horse corrals are provided, as well as a horse watering station, horse staging area and hitching racks. Parking space is limited at the campground.
