Learn more

Canebrake Horse Camp lies in the Badin Lake Recreation Area, a hub for outdoor activities in central North Carolina's Uwharrie National Forest. The facility is a scenic and restful overnight spot with both single and double campsites and numerous amenities for equestrian camping, though it is not exclusive to visitors with horses. Campers will delight in nearly 40 miles of forested horseback riding trails as well as hiking, off-road vehicle riding, mountain biking, swimming, fishing and boating opportunities in the area. The campground is open year-round.

Directions: From Troy, travel on NC 109N for 10 miles and turn left onto Mullinix Road (NC 1154). Follow Mullinix Road for about 2 miles to a "T" intersection. Turn right at "T" onto FR 544 (McLeans Creek Road) and travel about one-quarter mile to the campground on the right.
