Camp at Come Again Horse Camp and explore the Harrison-Crawford Forestry horse trails on the north side of Blue River.   Trails are well marked and mapped.

 

Riders will find a variety of conditions to include level dirt and occasionally rocky terrain to steep slopes through primarily shaded forest, wide graveled log roads to narrow wooded paths, a picnic overlook, spring-fed creeks as well as dry creek beds, and of course the Blue River. 

 

Fewer riders use these trails so expect unmanicured scenery, occasional downed trees to step over or ride around, and few encounters with other riders.  Muddy areas exist year around due to the many ground seeps in the forestry.  Rural paved and gravel roads may also be accessed, handy for those desiring a short easy jaunt.

 

Riders may choose from  short 1-2 hour rides, leisurely 3-4 hour rides, or an all day ride thru multiple connected trails including the south side of Blue River when the river is at normal pool.

Tucker Camp is a privately owned property, not available for public camping.  Respect the Tucker's property by staying on the gravel driveway, not riding into their space, and ONLY using the river access with the DNR horse trail marker.

Norman, Melissa, and friends do help maintain the trails; however, DNR is responsible for trail maintenance.  So occasional help from all trail riders to move limbs, pick up trash, or trim brush while riding helps keep these trails open for everyone!
