Directions

Spring Creek Equestrian Campground is in Cypress Hills Provincial Park, 20 km southeast of Medicine Hat on Hwy. 1, and 40 km south on Hwy. 41. This small campground has corrals and RV-friendly sites surrounded by meadow and open pine forest.  It's a great base camp for equestrian users hoping to explore the park's many kilometers of trails on horseback.

Equestrian campgrounds are intended for campers bringing a horse. Please only book at an equestrian campground if you are using it for equestrian purposes as there are only a few campgrounds available to these users.

The campsite fee is $27 per night and includes two 16' x 16' corrals.  Additional corrals are only available through another campsite due to limited number of corrals.

  • Water is available for horses. 
  • Please bring adequate feed for your animals. Limited grazing is permitted in the camping area but should not be relied on to feed horses.
  • Hobbling or highlining between trees is not permitted in the camping area. Please use the corrals provided or erect portable metal panels to secure your horses. High lines are permitted between trailers. Avoid wet or low lying areas when setting up corrals or campsites. If you're staying for longer than 48 hours, relocate corral panels to avoid excessive trampling of one location.
