                                                                          Trails of Anita-Alta

The primary purpose of the Blue Ridge Horseman's Association is to improve, expand and to protect existing lands open to horseback riding on public and private lands in North Carolina. BRHA operates the Anita-Alta BRHA Youth & Horse Camp; located at 2929 Mulberry Creek Rd., Lenoir, NC 28645.

We are open to all and boast the cheapest horse camping this side of the Mississippi River! Our campground is 375 acres and is adjacent to Boone Fork Recreation Park in the Pisgah National Forest of Grandfather district which has 43,380 acres.

We have primitive horse trailer camping & tent camping.  There are three pavilions on the property for club members' use.  Most of the campsites are located on Mulberry Creek. We also have miles and miles of well marked horse trails on old logging roads and single track trails.

A color coded map is available at the kiosk for $2 each so you can feel at ease in exploring trails on your own for the 1st time. Anita-Alta is great also for wagon driving being only 7/10 of a mile away from a gravel road with miles and miles of dirt road riding through the mountains.

Anita-Alta is a gated campground, so please make advance arrangements for access.  Or contact us through Facebook Blue Ridge Horsemans Association 

You can join our Association for only $60 for the year for your entire family and then you will be allowed to come and go as you please and camp anytime throughout the year. Each visit must not exceed 14 days in length. The only fee associated with camping is a daily $3.00 parking fee for each driving vehicle. i.e.: 1 truck, 1 trailer, 1 car, 6 people & 5 horses would be just $6 per day. 1 horse or 10 horses, as long as it came with only one driving vehicle is only $3 a day. 

Your kids will love it here!! We have a large catch and release fishing pond, a waterfall to hike to, several caves to explore, beautiful Mulberry Creek & Brown Branch bothmeandering right through the middle of the camping area, horseshoes, volleyball, and plenty of other fun things to do here.
