Horse and Camp at Mueller State Park, Colorado
Mueller State Park has a brand new adventure awaiting horse-back riders! Equestrians can now camp at the park with their horses and get up bright and early to ride the trails. With expanded trails this year, Mueller offers over 30 miles of trails through rolling meadows, forested canyons and the mountain beauty that is Mueller State Park!
Whether you plan to come for the day, or spend the night, your journey begins at the Livery where there's room for numerous trucks and trailers to park and unload. Water is available and the horse trails begin from there. Adjacent to the Livery are the equestrian campsites. These two campsites offer electricity, a tent pad and RV space, a 12 x 24 corral for each site and round pen use. You can enjoy the peace, quiet and beautiful view of Pike's Peak, tucked in and away from the main campground.
Equestrian campsites can be reserved by calling 1-800-678-2267. You can see the availability online, but they must be reserved by phone. Please bring your own weed-free feed, water buckets (hydrant available) and tools for clean up. Please call the park for more information 719-687-2366.
The campsite cost $26 per night, plus $10 per horse per night. In addition, each vehicle needs a park pass, $7 per day or $70 annual.
Make some new memories! You, your friends, and your horse - it doesn't get much better than that!
