We have had wonderful weather this year, every weekend has been beautiful despite the forecasts. We have made many improvements to the campground. There is now a horse fence between electric camping and the road. New tie lines have been installed. More gravel has been put down under the tie lines making it easier for campers to clean their sites. A new hose for the horse wash, extra strong so cars can drive over it and horses can step on it without damaging it. Fabulous sixteen foot picnic tables for the shelter house and the front of the restaurant were built this year. We purchased a Karaoke machine and it was a hit at our spring barbeques. Unfortunately we did not get stalls put in this year, we are still working on getting the necessary engineered plans and are optimistic about having stalls or at least pens for next year.

 

We put a lot of thought into our improvements to make the campground safer and more user friendly. For example: the tie lines utilize telephone poles to help preserve the trees that shade the campground. The tie lines by the creek are extra high with rings that drop down making the line safer for trailers backing into sites. The rings hanging down make reaching the tie line easier for riders. The lines themselves are made of cable rated for 6800 lbs. of pressure ensuring the line won’t break easily. The rings are rated for 250 lbs. of pressure so should break if a horse becomes hung up on its lead. The rings are spaced six feet apart so horses cannot bite their neighbor, or can share a hay net. The spacing also means we have lots of rings available for those folks who travel with lots of equines. We would like to thank those campers who came this spring for bearing with us while we installed the new tie lines.

 

We are fortunate to have the Pike County OHC use the campground as a home base and they work hard at maintaining the trails around here. There are over 50 miles of trails to explore without retracing your tracks. When you come to camp you can leave the cooking to us. Our Trails End Restaurant is open weekends and by request for groups. From Omelets to Onion Soup, you will be well fed without having to cook and clean.

 

Our campsites are shady and there is a small stream through the campground giving you a wonderful woodland ambiance. Most sites have electric hookup and accommodate long trailers. We offer a season pass for day riders or parking for a nominal fee.

 

The year is not over and in November we are planning to host an ACTHA(American Competitive Trail Horse Association) obstacle course to benefit the American Cancer Society. The last barbeque will be in October and in the spirit of Halloween it will be a skewered dining experience.

 

We look forward to meeting you soon.
