Whitehorse Creek

Activities

The Whitehorse Creek Campground is a medium sized campground located adjacent to the Whitehorse Creek and near the confluence of Whitehorse Creek and the McLeod River. Fishing (for rainbow trout, eastern brook trout, whitefish, and bull trout), hiking, and horseback riding in the newly created Whitehorse Wildland Park are all popular recreational activities. The Cadomin Caves are also located nearby. NO off highway vehicles (quads) are allowed in this campground or Park. This is a very popular campground, so reservations are recommended.
