Backbone Horse Campground is a small, semi-primitive campground designed for campers or picnickers that bring horses with them. The campground is open year round, and sites are available on a first come-first served basis. There is no fee for camping, but a free use permit must be completed upon entrance of the campground to ensure horse users only from Memorial Day weekend to Columbus Day weekend. There is a water pond for livestock available.
