White Pass Horse Camp

Did you know the Pacific Crest Trail can be used by more than just humans? Take your horse up to the PCT with easy access from the White Pass Horse Camp.

Six camping units are available at this horse camp in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest just on the east side of the White Pass summit. Hitching rails are provided as well as a stock ramp and toilet. There's enough parking there for 15 horse rigs and vehicles, according to the Forest Service.

A wilderness permit is required, which are free and available at the trailhead. Fees for being on site are $5 per vehicle for either day use or camping.

How to get there: Take U.S. Highway 12 to Forest Road 498 a quarter-mile east of the summit, then take the first turn to the right to get to the camping area.
