Harralson Horse Camp

Although located away from the lake, this small horse camp offers a quiet camping opportunity for equestrians away from the busy North Waldo and Islet Campgrounds.  Ride opportunities include:

  • The Harralson Trail (#4364), which connects the camp with the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail (#2000)
  • The Jim Weaver Loop (Waldo Lake Trail #3590), which connects with trails in the Waldo Lake and Three Sisters Wildernesses.

Note that there no equestrian improvements (corrals and hitching posts), as well as no water on site, so plan your visit accordingly. Picnic tables and fire rings are available.

Drinking water can be obtained at North Waldo Campground and horses can be watered near the campground off  of the Waldo Lake Trail (#3590). Please note that stock is not allowed in any of the Waldo Lake developed camps.

Harralson is a good staging area for those wanting to explore the trails in or around the Three Sisters and Waldo Lake Wilderness areas. The trail around Waldo Lake is another nice ride, but be aware that stock is not allowed in any of the Waldo Lake campgrounds.
