Deer Creek Horse Campground (for overnight camping) is on the right-hand side (west) of Park Road 20 and has five primitive campsites and is currently under renovation by the Madison County OHC. There is a permanent primitive restroom. Please note: there is no water in the horse campground. Tie lines are available on most sites. Sites #1, 2 and 3 can be reserved online, while sites #4 and 5 are “walk-in” and must be reserved at the park office upon arrival.
Deer Creek Horse Day Use area/Parking is on the east side of the road, immediately across from the horse campgrounds. It is a large gravel parking area with a primitive restroom, sheltered picnic tables and water for horses. A tie line and hitch rail are also available.
