IN • Hoosier Horse Camp

Hoosier Horse Camp is located on the border of the Hoosier National Forest with over 100 miles of horse trails. At the campground, you'll have access to electric/water sites, hitch rails, stall barns, and stalls on most sites. The onsite Trail Head Café has a full breakfast and dinner menu with homemade pizza and "Saturday Night Specials."


Hosier Horse Camp is located in the rolling hills of Norman, Indiana. It's tucked in a quiet nook on the southern side of the Hoosier National Forest.   

Trail Rides

Hickory Ridge Trail 2 to the west and Trail 15 to the east are a short service road ride away from Camp. In both directions, you'll find tons of very well marked trails that weave through 202,000 acres of the National Forest. 

You can ride to a number of historic cemeteries and buildings in the Forest, such as Callahan Cemetery and Hickory Ridge Lookout Tower. With the Mount Carmel Fault running through the Forest area, it's common in some areas to pan for gold and gems in the streams and find fossils along the roads.

The mix of openland and forest provides a wide variety of wildlife habitats. Expect to encounter seasonal white-tailed deer, fox, woodchucks, opossums, and gray squirrel, turkey, pileated woodpeckers, neotropical migrant songbirds, and migratory waterfowl. 

Additional Activities

You can fish, canoe, and enjoy many other water activities at the Monroe Reservoir 20 minutes away. Hosier Horse Camp also hosts wagon rides and community get togethers around the fire on occasion.


Hoosier Horse Camp features 80 electric/water campsites. Fifty sites are for "seasonal campers" and 30 sites are for nightly rental. The sites are 80' by 40' and offer pull-through parking if you don't feel like backing your rig in. Each site has a hitch rail, fire ring, and some sites feature two covered 8'x10' stalls.
