Description

Nestled in tall timber just southwest of Mt. McLouglin is a beautiful meadow called Willow Prairie. Adjacent to the camp is a wetlands with a beaver swamp, and several large ponds where wildlife abounds. Keep your eyes open for sandhill cranes, Canada geese, ducks, elk, and deer. The campground has ten campsites with four corrals at each site. Each site also has a picnic table and fire pit. Two vault toilets are available and situated for easy access from all sites. There is also potable water from a hand-pumped well, and two troughs for your horses. Day-use parking is available across from the horse camp.

A Campground Host is onsite between Memorial Day and Labor Day to answer any questions about the campground, the nineteen miles of maintained horse trails, or about the surrounding area in general. As volunteers, our hosts provide a great service for our visitors. If they make contact and ask you to comply with a specific regulation, they are only doing what the Forest Service has asked them to do. Please respect this, and if you have disagreement, contact the Butte Falls Ranger District.

The Willow Prairie Guard Station was constructed on the edge of the meadow in 1924 by a Forest Service road crew. Its main purpose at that time was as a firefighter guard station. The original cabin was recently restored by local volunteers and employees of the Butte Falls Ranger District. These volunteers represented the Rogue Snowmobile Club, Boy Scouts, and the Coalition of Equestrian Clubs.

The Campground has been in existence since the 1950's. In 1990, it was converted to a horse camp with 19 miles of interconnecting trails. This renovation was through a partnership with the Forest Service and the Coalition of Equestrian Clubs which provided much of the labor for this wonderful facility.
