Riders are rewarded with panoramic views of the lake, rides through forest shade and many opportunities to view wildlife while riding the Buggy Whip Equestrian Trail. This trail covers nearly 600 acres and over 10 miles. The trail is accessible from all sites in the Buggy Whip camping area. All Camping sites have 10'X 55' concrete pads, back-in spaces with water and electricity, a table, fire-ring, lantern post and a 20' tether cable for the horses. Parking is available for day use equestrian visitors. Visitors must provide their own horses. Proof of negative coggins is also required before entry to the park.
