I camp there at least 3-5 times a season. Nice varied riding, hills, some open areas, considerable wood land. It has reservations on Memorial and Labor day only. It is what I would call primitive camping, no electrical, two locations for water, combination of types of horse tie ups.

Horse Driving Southern Kettle Morain Forest, Palmyra

At least 20 miles of these trails are suitable for driving. The forest is divided by a highway at the horse campground. The east side has about 10 miles of driving trails that are excellent and fun to drive. The west side is a little more challenging due to steepness and sand, but still a fun drive if your horse is in condition.
The Midwest Distant Driving Association has an event there every year in the spring.

The old Plank Road is a black top trail that runs parallel to the highway. It is a very easy drive with excellent road crossings. There is at least one crossing of a railroad that proved a challenge for my pony and a rather narrow bridge that also was a challenge the first time. I thought it an easy and pleasant drive.

(near) Yellowstone Lake State Park
There are new trails near Yellowstone Lake SP in Wisconsin. Location. .5 mile N of Fayette, WI on County Hiway D. East side of road. Large parking area. No camping. They do on occasion have overnight camping in an adjoining farmers pasture during special trail weekends. They have at least 4 different loops from 5 to 15 miles in length. These are easy trails that follow the contour of crop land next to the woods. Well marked. Just established the fall of 97. There is a small stream near the TH to water horses, otherwise no water. We did go during a special opening trail dedication which had camping. They brought in a large water tanker to the camping pasture. I believe the Darlington Saddle Club looks over the trails, if someone would like more information contact them.

Fond du Lac KOA
The Fond du Lac KOA (WI) is under new management and these folks are really horse-friendly! They have horses of their own on the KOA premises and are willing to let horse-folks overnight or extended camp there.
They have showers, dump station, water, electricity and a swimming pool (for you not your horses!) The KOA is open from 4/1 through 10/31 each year.

They're located about 1 mile east of Hwy 41 which runs north/south through the state of Wisconsin...take the Hwy B exit which is just south of Fond du Lac and follow the KOA signs. Easy to get to/into with big rigs and it's a quick hop off the freeway if you need a place to overnight in a hurry.
(The actual address of the KOA is N4177 Cearns Lane, Fond du Lac, WI 54935)

No horse trails are adjacent to the KOA but if you want to camp there and trailer to horse trails you're only about 15 minutes from 40+ miles of trails at the Northern Kettle Moraine Horsepark (New Prospect, WI).
They also have a primitive horse camp just outside of New Prospect but it really tight to get into with big rigs....and you don't get the amenities that you'll get at the KOA!

Contact Charles or Sandy Esp (KOA owners) at 920-477-2300 or 1-800-562-3912. You'll enjoy talking with them and they'll work with you to accomodate you/your horses.

Trail Rides (bring your own horse or mule)

Wilderness Pursuit
Wilderness Pursuit in Wisconsin provides the chance for people to enjoy wonderful horses and to ride them in beautiful surroundings (or bring your own). We wish to attract groups who would like to help with camp and horse chores.

In WI we offer custom made primitive outing trips up to 6 days and 5 nights long. Complete outfitting including tents, sleeping bags, mats, meals and snacks are provided. Riders need only bring personal gear, extra snacks and beverages. We ride in the 133,000 acres of the Clark County Forest. Wildlife is plentiful and nature is at its best. We also have 2 cozy, log-sided sleeping cabins at the corral.
Return in the evening, enjoy a home cooked meal made by our staff, spend a comfortable night in a cabin, start each day with a camp breakfast and spend the entire day riding through scenic trails.

Our youth camps in WI offer a 5-day stay in camp atmosphere. We offer the kids the opportunity to work with horses and learn to care for them. We are a horse related camp only! Everything except personal gear and bedroll are included.

Our business is open to the public, and yes riders may bring their own horses, but we charge for the event that they would be a part of.
Riding in WI for overnight trips or extended trips.

Please E-MAIL us with any questions. We'll be happy to send you more information or contact you about booking an outing.
