Big Fork Campground is located at the Mount Helen Trailhead, one of the main trailheads in Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area.  You'll have your choice of (10) RV campsites with water & electric, several primitive campsites, or (2) camper rentals. All sites have fire pits & picnic tables.  The lounge area has a large-screen TV & eating area next to the private men’s & women’s washrooms.

Our barn has a sun lit 16' center-aisle with 14x14 bedded stalls, wash racks & round pen. The second barn has (4) 12x12 stalls, each letting out into two different fenced paddocks, an adjoining tack/hay room & wash racks. Sawdust bedding is free.  

Ride through our hay field to the trailhead, where you can ride Long Ridge trail to Needles Eye, Jake's Hole, Gun Rock, Double Arches & much more.  Or ride down to the O & W Railroad bed which runs alongside the North White Oak Creek, often referred to as the jewel of the park, giving riders magnificent views of the roaring creek & cliffs above.  The O & W connects you to the park’s over 200 miles of trails that range from short, easy, day rides, to long, challenging loops. Color maps will be provided.  

Big South Fork is also great for hiking, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, mountain biking, hunting & birding. We are ten minutes away from the Honey Creek Loop trail that is ranked as one of the top 25 hiking trails in the USA.
