Equestrian


Occoneechee State Park

Equestrians are welcome on Occoneechee’s 15-mile (round-trip) Panhandle Multi-Use Trail, although it is occasionally closed to horses because of wetness. In accordance with state law, you must carry a negative Coggins report with each horse you bring to the park.

The park has 11 equestrian campsites, each of which has electricity (but no water hookups) and 12-by-12-foot covered stalls. The equestrian campground also has a 75-foot-diameter exercise ring and a central wash-down rack. You can only rent a horse stall if you’re renting an equestrian campsite, and that campsite must be occupied by someone.
