McCall Memorial Equestrian Campground

McCall Memorial Equestrian Park, located 4 miles south of Idyllwild, CA, and one-quarter mile west of Mountain Center off Highway 74, is a unique 88-acre mountain park designated specifically for equestrian camping and trail riding.

Situated at an elevation of 4,400 feet and surrounded by the San Bernardino National Forest, McCall Park provides access to several excellent trails that meander through tall pine trees, open meadows, and past seasonal streams, affording breathtaking views of the San Jacinto Mountains, gentle flatlands and rolling hills as well as the rock-strewn peaks that tower above Idyllwild. This park provides opportunities for small parties or large groups to meet for day rides or overnight events, with excellent accommodations for horses and riders including 53 sturdy pipe corrals, barbecue and picnic facilities, and plenty of space for camping.

McCall campground is officially open for camping.  Reservations can be made on a first come basis.
Sadly, the surrounding trails are currently closed but there are equestrian trails located in the nearby area,
such as 
US Forest Service trails, including South Fork and Webster.

Please note these trails require an Adventure Pass.
