Blackwell Horsecamp has long been a popular destination and overnight camping area for equestrians. Other campers are also welcome although the facilities are geared to provide for horses. Blackwell Horsecamp is along Tower Ridge Road in the center of the Charles Deam Wilderness area, approximately one mile from Highway 446. The camp also is a trailhead for the Charles C. Deam Wilderness trail system.

There is a picnic shelter at Blackwell Horsecamp, a loading area for people to easily mount horses, including people with disabilities, and hitching posts. Trails from the site link to the trail system in the Charles C. Deam Wilderness.

Blackwell Horsecamp is a primitive campground without designated sites and few amenities. The primary use of the campground is for campers with horses who ride trails into the Charles C. Deam Wilderness from this site.
