Campers can ride from Shoal Creek Farm to DuPont State Forest without using a trailer. Trailers are however available for rent for transportation to other state parks or riding facilities in the area. Available trailers include 2 horse - step up bumper pull trailer and 4 horse - goose neck trailer. Please call for pricing.


Limited stalls are available at $30 per night.  ​Pastures are available at $20 per horse per night. All pastures have wood fencing. Pasture boarding is best suited for campers whose horses can be together. Although there is an abundance of acreage, there is a limit to the number of individual pastures. Stable boarding is best for horses needing to be boarded alone. All horses must be stalled or turned out in pasture.

** Please do not stall your horse if he or she is a cribber**

For large groups please have a representative for the group call and make reservations.

If you can give an approximate time of arrival, or communicate during your travel, we will make every effort to be at the barn to greet you. A credit card number is required for reservations. No call and no shows will be charged 50% of reservation fee. Payment in cash or check upon arrival is appreciated, payment with credit card will be charged a card reader fee.
