|Ride Camp Directions|
FORESTVILLE/MYSTERY CAVE STATE PARK
Use the above ^^ Park Office address, not your GPS default. DO NOT put “Forestville Horse Camp” into your GPS!!! You will get to a LOCKED gate, very close to the camp. You cannot enter camp this way.
****IMPORTANT and serious information about camping: If your plans change and someone other than yourself will be occupying your site, you MUST change the name of the CAMPSITE OCCUPANT, either online or by phoning the state reservation number. There is a $7 fee. Park staff need and insist they have the correct site occupant in their record for emergency/safety purposes. Cell service is not guaranteed should your loved ones at home have an emergency and to try to get in touch with you while in the park. This must be done before the new occupant arrives for check in at the entrance.
