Badin Lake Horse Camp is the polar opposite of Canebrake Horse Camp. In essence, this horse “camp” is simply an open field, and the field is not on level ground. There are posts galore, lined up on one end of the field, for you to tie your horse up to. The upside of Badin Horse Camp is that there is a small trail leading from the campground to a horse watering hole along West Branch Creek. Another plus is that it is free. So if you are looking for a horse camp within easy access of the miles and miles of bridle trails within Uwharrie National Forest and are on a strict budget, this may be the place for you.
