General Description

Wild Horse Crossing Campground is a Forest Service developed Campground. This campground has three vault toilets and two hand wells but no electricity. There are 20 sites available for use. Seven of the sites are pull through, one can accommodate large groups of people (approx. 35) and the balance are suitable for medium sized RV units and tent camping.

The site is situated adjacent to the Owyhee River. This river can be fished for trout. Other streams and reservoir nearby can be fished for trout, bass and catfish.

Historically, Wild Horse Crossing was an important meeting and trading ground for the Western Shoshone, Paiute and Bannock tribes. In recognition of this, several traditional brush shade shelters have been constructed in the campground for visitors to view and enjoy. In the future there will be interpretive signs at the site explaining these shelters and some of the history of the area.
