L.L. (Stub) Stewart State Park

It’s not quite “glamping,” but the camping at Hares Canyon Horse Camp at L.L. (Stub) Stewart State Park is pretty darn nice.  The riding is terrific, too!!

The Camping

Hares Canyon Horse Camp

Stub Stewart State Park’s Hares Canyon Horse Camp offers full R.V. hookups at every campsite, spacious sites with room for two trailers, and sturdy 4-horse corrals. The horse camp even has flush toilets and a free hot shower! What’s not to like?

The Riding

The park, located only 35 miles west of Portland on the east slope of the Coast Range, offers 25 miles of top-notch equestrian trails.

The 20-mile Banks-Vernonia Trail runs through the park and connects with several of the park trails. While this rails-to-trails conversion is paved for its entire length, equestrians can travel comfortably on the chip trail beside the pavement.  Watch for passing strollers, speeding bikes, and other urban trail hazards.

In addition to the B-V Trail, Stub Stewart has plenty of other trails.  The Hares Canyon Trail connects the horse camp to a network of trails that offer loops of various lengths.
