Right near the spring there is a small camp, and then just downhill of where Horton Creek & Highline Traiils meet there is a larger one.
Also, you might consider doing a loop
hike to Horton, utilizing the Derrick Trail for outbound or return.

A portion of the lower Horton Trail is actually an old road & is quite rocky, don't be discouraged though, as it turns nicer as you climb. You may want to stop periodically as you will have the creek next to you from time-to-time.
