Horseshoe Lake Campground Description

Horseshoe Lake Campground is situated on the northeast end of the lake, in the east side of the popular Midway High Lakes Area below Mount Adams’ northwest flank. The lake is popular for camping, quiet boating (electric motors or canoeing), and hiking and biking on a trail half way around the lake. Other activities include scenic viewing and fishing. Like Takhlakh Lake, this 25 acre lake offers postcard views of Mount Adams perfectly reflecting across the lake. The only real difference though is that you need to hike partway around the lake to see the mountain framed across the lake. The rustic eleven-site campground features the Green Mountain Trail, which halfway circles the lake, offering more views of the mountain, and up to the top of Green Mountain, offering outstanding views of Mount Adams and its sheer, glaciated northwest face as well as Adams Glacier, the second largest glacier in the contiguous United States.

The campground is located at a high altitude (4,200 feet), offering Hiking, horseback riding and biking nearby. The campground has 11 sites, some in the shade, while most allowing more than enough sun to keep you warm. The lake is very easily accessible from the campground. This campground does not take reservations, it is based on a first-come, first-served basis. Horses are not allowed in the campground. There are horse campgrounds nearby however.
