Wild Mare Horse Camp

Horsfall Beach Road

Overview

Wild Mare Horse Campground is located along the central Oregon coast, 22 miles south of the town of Reedsport, and 2 miles north of Coos Bay.

Horse campers come here to explore the Wild Mare Horse Trail and take in captivating views of Oregon's Pacific Coast, just a half mile from the campground.

Recreation

Equestrian campers are fond of the Wild Mare Horse Trail #4500. This trail begins under a canopy of alder and spruce, and then emerges into an open dune area that crosses down to the beach.

Some parts of the dunes are designated for hiking and horseback riding only, while off-road vehicle enthusiasts can roam free on the dunes north of the campground.

Facilities

The year-round campground is equipped with drinking water, vault toilets, a picnic area, picnic tables, campfire rings, trash bins and recycling receptacles. Horses are welcome in the 12 corrals provided. Head to Horsfall Campground for the use of token operated showers.

Natural Features

Tucked among shore pine, Douglas fir and huckleberry, Wild Mare is part of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, known for its wind-sculpted sand dunes towering up to 500 feet above sea level. This region is in the southern tip of Siuslaw National Forest, hugging the Pacific Ocean.

Nearby Attractions

Scenic water attractions are in every direction of the campground. Head south to Coos Bay, west to the Pacific, and east to Horsfall Lake.
