Dry Creek Horse Camp & Giddy up go Loop

If you want to experience the joys of riding in the Ochocos but don’t live nearby, you’ll find pleasant horse camping accommodations at Dry Creek Horse Camp. The camp has 6 sites with corrals, picnic tables, and fire rings, plus a toilet and a manure bin.  Water is available from nearby Dry Creek in early summer, but by midsummer the creek lives up to its name so you’ll need to bring your own stock water.  


This 7- to 9-mile ride originates at Dry Creek Horse Camp and climbs a nearby ridge.  On the trail you’ll ride through beautiful stands of ponderosa pines and grand firs, see the tumble-down remains of several structures at Kidnap Springs, and take in expansive views from the top of the ridge.


  • From Prineville, Oregon: Take Highway 26 east for approximately 7 miles, then turn left onto Forest Service Road 33 (Mill Creek Road). Continue for approximately 5 miles and turn left at the end of the pavement, which will put you onto Forest Road 3370. Travel about 3 miles north then turn left onto Forest Service Road 3370-200. Dry Creek Horse Camp will be on your left just past the creek
