The Blackwell Horse Camp has long been a popular overnight camping area for equestrians. Traditional campers and backpackers are also welcome, although the facilities are geared specifically to provide for horses.

The camp is located along Tower Ridge Road in the center of the Charles C. Deam Wilderness area within the Hoosier National Forest, approximately one mile from Highway 446. The camp is also a trailhead for the Deam Wilderness trail system. Brooks Cabin is located nearby and serves as a visitor information site on weekends during the recreation season. 

Annual or daily-use tags are required when riding a horse or bicycle on Hoosier National Forest trails.
