Horse Corral Reservations

Camping is authorized for overnight horse users only at the visitor horse corrals, with a permit. The visitor horse corrals and campsites at Pine Springs and Dog Canyon Campground can be reserved up to 60 days in advance of the visit.

The Dog Canyon Visitor Corral and the Frijole Visitor Horse Corral have a capacity of 10 animals.

Horse corral fees are $15.00 per night.

There is an additional entrance fee of $10.00 per person. This fee is separate from the daily camping fee and is valid for up to seven days.

A permit is required for all use of stock animals, which can be obtained at the visitor center upon arrival.
