You can explore all 70 miles of Shawnee State Forest’s bangin’ bridle trails with the help of your animal friend and Bear Lake Horse Camp, which provides basic accommodations for you both. The camp connects directly to most of the horse-approved trails in the forest, so you can hunker down here for the night and plan out a totally customized journey. Get stoked to make your way through rugged landscape and thick lush forest, all while knowing you’ll be getting a first-class view!
