We plan to camp here this weekend but were sad to again hear that there's no one to take rides at the stables. This happened to us the last time we visited the park. Luckily we searched this site and found the stables close by we used last time this happened. It's about a half hour away. It is called old caldwell trail stables and they were able to schedule us right in. The park is gorgeous and we love it here, still beautiful to hike if we can't horseback ride
