So, Azalea is a really nice campground with sugar pines and redwoods all around. From here you can more easily drive to the giant sequoias either in Sequoia Nat’l park or Kings Canyon. Or even check out king’s canyon. Pretty spectacular. Also as kind of a tip, although you cant camp here in the winter, it makes for a great snow play area.
Absolutely loved Kings Canyon! Nice sites however not many are level. Lots of bathrooms but no showers. Easy walk to campstore, post office, restaurant, and visitor center. Many trails close by. Very busy in summer. No reservations. Tent only loops available.
This may be my favorite campground ever. Huge sites, HUGE trees, absolutely breathtaking. Showed up mid September, was basically a ghost town, got to pick our site, has flush toilets, bear boxes, what more could a girl ask for! The drive to Kings Canyon is phenomenal, and head south to visit the General, mind blowing.
