DIRECTIONS TO NEW RIDE CAMP:
ALL TURNS from the edge of pavement on Hwy 97 and Hwy 26 are marked with either “AERC” signs or “Mustangs To The Rescue” signs.
From Madras and points north and west – A mile or so south of Madras on Hwy 97, turn east on Hwy 26 and proceed just about 11 miles. Turn right on good gravel SE Laurel Lane – sign states “Gray Butte TH / Haystack Resvr”. Follow for 3 miles (pass Scales Corral) and turn left on Forest Road 5750. Follow this dirt road in reasonable condition for a half mile. Turn left at our “Camp” sign and find camp in a quarter mile.
From Prineville and points east – follow Hwy 26 toward Madras to just shy of the 11 mile marker, which is about 2 miles past the intersection with Lone Pine Road. Turn left on SE Laurel Lane – sign states “Gray Butte TH / Haystack Resvr”. Follow for 3 miles (pass Scales Corral) and turn left on Forest Road 5750. Follow this dirt road in reasonable condition for a half mile. Turn left at our “Camp” sign and find camp in a quarter mile.
From Bend, Redmond & points south – From Terrebonne Thriftway, head north on Hwy 97 for 7 miles and turn right on SW Norris Lane (in good condition). Follow Norris straight for about 4 miles before going through three 90 degree corners – stay on the main drag and be very careful near the ranch houses – there is a border collie and an aussie/corgi cross that run out in front of nearly every vehicle. After the corners, turn right onto SE Laurel Lane at an unmarked T intersection. Don’t worry – the road is still in good condition. In 1.5 mile, turn right onto Forest Road 5750. Follow this dirt road in reasonable condition for a half mile. Turn left at our “Camp” sign and find camp in a quarter mile. Please note that some GPS units may attempt to send you a more direct route on inappropriate roads to avoid the corners – we recommend that you follow our signs.
Our location is very near Cyrus Horse Camp. Our camp is quite roomy with plenty of porta-potties and plenty of water tanks spread throughout.
Thank you for making the trip!
