POI in Deschutes National Forest
A great way to explore the Metolius River Basin area is by horseback and Sheep Springs horse camp is where to stay. This horse camp provides access to the Metolius-Windigo and Bear Valley trails.
Check out a map of this campground here.
Horse campgrounds have been designed to accommodate people who need to corral their horses. We have a limited number of these kinds of campgrounds and ask, out of courtesy and safety for you and the horses, to please consider camping elsewhere if you do not have a horse. We have many campgrounds nearby.
