CAMP & HORSE INFORMATION
The park’s 14 miles of trails covers gently rolling hills speckled with wildflowers offering spectacular views of the lake. It is also home to a wide variety of wildlife including Eagles, Heron, White Pelican, Geese, Quail, Hawks, Deer, Elk, Coyote, Bobcat and Wild Boar.
The camp has horse corrals, which are limited and available until full. PLEASE DO NOT PUT A SINGLE HORSE IN A LARGE PEN. Keep these pens open for multiple horses to use. If you take up a large pen for a single horse, you will be asked to either move your horse or we will split the pen for another horse. NO EXCEPTIONS! Please bring portable corrals if you have them or be prepared to tie your horse to your trailer. There are also some trees to hi-line and portable electric fence is ok but limited to no larger than a 12x12 space.
No loose horses in the arena. If you wish to turn out your horses, please use the round pen and do not leave your horses unattended.
A Long Trail permit is required to ride the trails, which is included in your registration fees. Prior to the event, you will receive the long trail permit to fill out and bring with you or the link to fill out the information online. You must carry the long trail permit with you while riding the trails.

SUPPORT A GREAT EVENT FOR A GREAT CAUSE
This is a fundraiser for the Monterey Bay Equestrians, Inc. All proceeds go towards all things equine including trail acquisition, trail maintenance, horse campground amenities & upgrades, horse rescues, emergency animal rescue efforts, etc. Support a GREAT cause while having a GREAT time!
Horse camps are very sparse in Monterey County. Lake San Antonio’s Los Robles Group Area Horse Camp is a unique gem, and one of MBE’s Special projects. Thanks to our participants of past annual Poker Ride & Campouts, we have been able to provide funding toward an additional trail, hitching posts, camping corrals, water troughs, a shade/rain cover over the picnic tables in the group area & electrical hookups at some campsites. Come and join us for a fun filled weekend riding the beautiful trails, eating great food, playing poker for great prizes and making new friends, while helping us support the worthwhile cause of preserving our local trails and facilities.
