OverviewAgnew Horse Camp is located in Reds Meadow Valley, just west of the full-service community of Mammoth Lakes, California. This equestrian camp provides access to some of the most spectacular wilderness in the Sierras and many outdoor activities such as horseback riding, fishing, hiking and photography.
Devils Postpile National Monument and the famous Ansel Adams Wilderness are nearby, and a pack station with several amenities is just down the road.
The campground sits in a lodgepole pine forest surrounded by high peaks, adjacent to creeks and a small lake, at an elevation of 8,400 feet. Spring and early summer wildflower displays bring even more color to the landscape.
The campground is a great base camp for hiking the area's many trails. Within a few miles, campers will find the High Trail, Shadow Creek Trail and River Trail, all for hiking and horseback riding. Trailheads to the Ansel Adams Wilderness and Pacific Crest Trail are also in the vicinity. Some of the terrain can be challenging for horses, especially due to the high elevation.
The horse camp is adjacent to the main Agnew Meadows Campground and group camp. Three equestrian-friendly campsites are available. The road to the facility is narrow, single-laned and only open in summer.
The area is close to Devils Postpile National Monument and the Ansel Adams Wilderness. Both areas provide great day trips, offering horseback riding and hiking trails, as well as unparalleled photographic opportunities.
