Campground Elk Haven Horse Camp: Well maintained, very spacious sites with full hook ups, caters to horse campers, great covered corrals, clean modern showerhouse, store, limited cafe, rec room and super hosts who are very accommodating. I have traveled with my horse for 20 years and this campground is one of the best I've seen for horse folks. However, the campground is for everyone, with or without horses. They also offer trail rides for the non-horse campers. They have a really neat website:www.elkhavenhorsecamp.com
